Okay, I see what you are saying and your verbosity -- to an extent, Chuck -- was necessary.
From what I understand, the 705x 5 x125wpc RMS amp is quite a champ. I am thinking 125 for my center and 2 x 125 for each front (stereo) speaker if I were to biamp - for creative purposes if nothing more, or maybe if I got a good deal on a nice condition 705.
Anyway, I am just trying to think of creative ways to power my 6-channel system and make sure I'm giving my front stereo speakers what they need to really cook cleanly. I am also wanting to be sure the center gets some juice, too.
My choice combinations (that I am aware of) if I go all Carver power:
1) A-753x - hard to find 250wpc 3-channel
2) AV-705x - 5 x 125wpc w/2 channels bridged and the remaining channel driving the center (if bridging this amp is even possible?)
3) AV-705x - as described above (bi-amp) w/remaining channel for center
4) 2-channel stereo amp along with either a tfm-6cb or 15cb in mono mode for the center
5) AV-806x (run 3-channel if this amp is bridgeable?)
My surrounds are rather small (B&W LM1s mounted to the wall) and thus while more power for the three of them would be better, the priority on giving them their own amp is low right now (they are rated 100wpc RMS and the receiver is rated at that).
I don't have a wife right now so the number of pieces isn't a factor.
Any ideas welcome....
