Well I've heard of Emotiva for many years and I just made the jump. Two XPA-5's are in route. A downgrade, but I'm hoping it won't make any sonic differences. I had four monoblock Odyssey's and a Theta Dreadnaught for surrounds and mid. Now I'll just have two units to do it all. I'll be using four channels for the fronts (two sub amps also). Then two channels for the center and four channels for the surrounds. Clean look now with both matching amps. The Odyssey's are just so bulky for my little room. Time to sell the old and wire up the new.
Welcome to the Lounge! I look forward to your review, and importantly...once your hear the XPA-5's, to see if you think it is a sonic downgrade or not.
