I have read several threads on power requirements. There seems to be a mixed feeling between quality and quanity of watts required. Given all things being equal (except the two channel sound is more important than 7.1 home theater) what are your thoughts for the two channel amp(s). I will probably go with a midrange 5 channel (like Emotiva) for the center and surrounds but for the two channel setup I'm thinking of Emotiva Mono-blocks (1,000 watts ea.-quanity) or a used McIntosh MC252 for a little more $$ (250 watts-quality?). What's your vote to drive my LSi15's? Thanks!
