I had two Emotiva boat anchors, sorry I mean power amps, and their latest processor, sorry do not remember the model.
These took up huge amounts of rack and floor space and ran hot!
Replaced both power amps and the processor with tiny little Nuforce 8 channel class D power amp and matching processor.
AVP-18 is the processor, MCA20 is the power amp.
Totally slaughtered the Emotiva stuff in every aspect.
Small form, runs cool, just as flexible as the Emotiva processor was and on paper it is only supposed to be 150wpc x8 but in the room it plays WAY louder than the Emotiva kit ever did.
Only downside of the AVP18 is there are no future upgrades planned for it so Dolby Atmos is not supported if that is important.
I run 7.1 and the few Atmos discs I have come across I have just run whatever regular non Atmos soundtrack it came with as an alternative.
