Ooh, you just gave me an idea. :D\n\nSo my point is exactly that - they are apples to oranges, not apples to apples. :D\n\nLike I said to Kurt, it’s not happening anyway, but if they could somehow manage to make the MX-A5300 bridged for 450W x 5CH and not totally jack up the price, it would be apples to oranges.\n\nBut yeah, if the amp is just 150W x 11Ch, then it’s no different than an AVR-amp (apples to apples).\n\nI guess you’re asking WHY? :D\n\nWhy not just get an ATI (or equivalents)?\n\nNo particular reason. Just shooting the breeze. :D\nYou basically want the $7500 Denon POA-A1HDCI for 1\/3rd the price. Definitely not going to happen.
