Dear stereophile community,
I have an Onkyo 5008 with Kef loudspeakers for my Home Theater 5.1 setup. The L/R speakers are Kef 203/3, the others are Kef 2000 satellites with Subwoofer Kef PSW 2000.
Evertything is fine for HT (movies) but I see some limitation listening music at high volume where the Onkyo switch off itself after sometime @ 86 of its absolute volume value. I like to listen music at high volume
Can please somebody with more experience advise me if it will make sense to preout the two stereo channels with dedicated monoblocks or stereo amplifier in order to better drive the Kef 203/2? I am eventually anyway already reaching the limitation of the Kef 203/2 with the 5008? If yes, without going to pay impressive amounts, which one? Rotel? Crown? Bryston? any other?
