Splitting up HT and 2 Channel systems
I've been going back and forth about splitting my hybrid setup into HT and 2 channel, in different rooms. I use a seperate pre/pro for HT (Sunfire TGII) and pre for 2 channel (ARC SP9 MKII). The two setups are in the same room, only thing in common is the amp and the front speakers. I would like to get the RPTV out of the room and into the family room. In doing so - I would move the current rear speakers (Magnepan MMG) to the new HT setup as fronts, augmented by a sub. I have a very adequate 5.1 reciever that could work for HT, as I am 80/20 music to HT.
I have used the Sunfire CG Signature amp to drive my ARC pre and the TGII for HT. I am thinking of selling off the Sunfire gear (which I love, don't get me wrong), and use the money to put in a HQ 2 channel amp to drive my 2 channel room, and use the reciever to drive my HT system. It seems to me that it will do a fine job of powering the MMG's augmented by a Sunfire Super junior sub. Looking for caveats, advice from those who have done it, logistics, and 2 channel amp advice for driving my Magnepan MGIIIA's
