I found some info of Emotiva on some Swedish sites and started to look into Emotiva. Really cool stuff, well buildt and look like something Godzilla would fear. ;D
I am searching for some ideas on what kind of amp I should get, cuz there is sooo much to choose. Been looking at the XPA-5 but dont know if I need that kind of juice for my back speakers. XPA-2 or perhaps 3.
What do you guys think? Cuz I would really like to drive my Kappa 600`s to their max or close to it. I am happy with my H/K reciever, but maybe that has to go too.
I listne to mostly Metal or death Metal, don´t know if that matters at all, but I like when it sound close to brilliant and loud.
What to do, what to doo?
Thanx, and a big thanx to the Emotiva staff for giving us audio freaks something worth our money.

I listen to metal too and I own an xpa5 that I use for movies and in 2 channel for music. It does indeed make a noticeable difference by using an emotiva power amp separate from your receivers built in amp. I have infinity kappa speakers in my car and I never knew they made kappas for home use. Use the rca pre-outs from your receiver and if you're listening to just music use your receivers pure/direct mode which will improve your sound by turning off all in essays circuits and processing. You won't regret it.
