    Ok guys pop quiz,

    Setup config below:

    Do I update my pioneer 812 to an ax5i, or should i get a 2 channel power amp & keep my pioneer 812.

    Was thinking of buying a 2 channel rotel amp for the front 2 speakers & use my 812 for rest....

    Which in your valued opinions would be the best?



    SETUP: pioneer 504, pioneer 812, pioneer 868i, mission 733i fronts, mission cente 73c, pioneer surrounds, rel strata 3 sub.

    As you have the 504 & 868, I think the "5" is a must to exploit all of the "package" benefits (I-link etc)

    I have gone down that route (504/868/AX5/FS1-6.1 ) & use a Rega/Arcam/Audiolab/ Mission 770 system for CD & good old 33 rpm!

    Regards,

    I Have a ax5i for movies and its amazing, but for stereo is only average. So i use a musical fidelity amp and cd for stereo.
    The ax5i only amps the central and surrounds.
