Hi. For a 9.2 channel setup what's the best way to go about it. A amplifier Avr combo with 2 channels dedicated to the height channels or 3 channels dedicated to LCR. Or
A dedicated 9.2 channel avr
HiI would always suggest going for very efficient speakers with high sensitivity for HT. One poor avr can't drive all those speakers. My personal cut off is 90db. If your front L&R speakers are in the region of 86 or 87db, add a 2 channel amp for the front two main speakers.
And as reachkalyan said, there are no thumb rules here. You will know whether an additional amp is required only when you put one in the chain, and hear the sound improved.
Iam running a 5.1.4 system with a modest marantz sr6011, with efficient qacoustics concept 40 speakers of 90db sensitivity. It was sounding good. No complains what so ever. And then I added a 2 channel amp of 160w per channel, and the sound really improved. Especially on music in stereo mode. So my amp has stayed stuck in my HT setup now
I added a 2 channel integrated amp with HT bypass.
Thanks for the reply. Can you share model no & any suggestions to add to my yamaha Aventage 3040 for front speakers monitor audio gold 300.
As I am planning 7.1.4 atmos speaker setup and yamaha had nine channels Amplification. So need a two channel power amp or good 2 channel integrated amp with ht bypass.
Thanks a lot for your suggestions. I used to have As2000 with Cd1000 but sold it long back.Hi again Vikas.
Iam using a parasound halo integrated. But Yamaha make some great 2 channel amps. See if you can find the AS2100 or AS3000. Both should have HT bypass, and sound great too. By the way there is another thread on another forum, where a gentleman is looking for the exact same requirement for his MA gold 300'S. And by coincidence he also is using a Yamaha avr. I will post a link to that thread below, please keep checking it once in a while to see some suggestions from experienced audiophiles, unlike newbies like me. All the best
Looking to get an amp to get my Monitor Audio Gold 300s to sing. USB in a requirement (unless I get a separate DAC but would prefer not to) HT passthrough a requirement (was thinking though of maybe Cambridge Edge A which has input with preset volume button on remote unless this is a bad idea?)

Timbre matching delivers max value. If you have same brands, go for them. Higher sensitivity vintage likely to be easy load for AVR.Hi guys,
I am planning to build a dedicated Dolby Atmos HT for my newly purchased Denon x3300.
As I have lot of vintage high sensitive full range as well as two way speakers, can I use them in this setup?
Only caveat would be impedence matching between amp and pre outs of Denon, in case you choose to use vintage amps other tube amps.Timbre matching delivers max value. If you have same brands, go for them. Higher sensitivity vintage likely to be easy load for AVR.
I am using rethm center channel, Fostex Jericho horns for LCR and Philips powerhouse speakers for surrounds. They are powered by Dared DV-6C tube hybrids in a 5.0 setup.
