I'm anticipating picking up a new prepro for HT & two channel after the 1st of the year. I'm quite happy with my vintage 1980 Nikko VI amp for the mains so that's off the table for now. I have an Outlaw monoblock for my center & my NAD T765 is powering my surrounds. I have a couple different scenerios to ponder for the center & surrounds.
Keep the Outlaw, buy two more & call it a day. The most expensive move.
Sell the Outlaw & pickup an EMO XPA-3. Rather inexpensive move.
Keep the Outlaw & pickup a used two channel amp. Rather inexpensive also.
I'm not interested in a 5 channel amp. I like the flexibility of being able to swap out the main two channel amp when the mood hits me (Mac MC 402 some day!!!). So, for now I'm just interested in powering the center & surrounds. My surrounds are Polk LSiFX which are 4ohm & the center is 8ohm. Which way do you think is best?
