I'm looking to pickup 3-M80's as part of my home theater (fronts +center).

To drive them, I was planning on using the soon to be released Denon 4311ci with ~130w/channel.

A friend suggested that I drop back to the Denon 3311ci and add an Emotiva XPA-3 to power the fronts and let the 3311 drive the four QS8 surrounds.

What do you all think? Which is a better solution for use with the m80's?

I'll be using them for movies, but my son is a musician with musician ears so musicality will rule the day in terms what we end up purchasing. I just need it loud. smile
