I was planning to power the LFRs with pair of Parasound A21. But I sold them today to a friend so my plan has to alter for a bit. A colleague of mine who happens to be an audiophile told me he has been testing his Revel Salon2 with a pair of pro amp by Crown for few months and he was very impressed by them. Today I had the pleasure to listen to his salons in his house driven by two Crown XLS 2500 and I too am impressed by what I heard. We discussed the possibility of removing the fan and make the unit passive cooled as well as making a 12V trigger to power on the units to better suit the home environment .
Long story short, few hours later (I gotta stop spending money on audio gear, according to my better half) I took the plunge and ordered two sets of Crown XLS2000 for my mains, and three sets of Crown XLS1500 to power my new VP180 V4HP and four QS8. I think it's safe to say I should have enough power for my new home theatre
I will let you guys know how it turns out.
