EMOTIVA XPA2 WITH MUSIC FIDELITY M6I

hi

can you please tell me i will be using a denon 4400 with a emotiva xpa 2 with a music fidelity m6i
using emotiva t2 as fronts and c2 centre emotiva t2 as rears and t1 as additional surrounds
with 4 svs prime elevations speakers

my questions is i will use the denon 4400 as main amp
and the music fidelity m6i for high frequencies bi wiring the front and centre speaker
and the emotiva xpa2 as low frequencies for the front and centre
with blue jeans belden u500e speaker cables

with emotiva upa1 mono blocks

and a oppo 205 4k player

my question is would the music fidelity m6i work extremely well with the emotiva xpa2
and with the denon 4400
and would it sound great for music and hometheatre with this combination

No.

In my opinion, you are talking about putting a racehorse in harness with a mule. You don't get very good results that way.

You should use the excellent Musical Fidelity amp alone to drive your front two speakers, without using the much lower quality Emotiva any more than you have to. Forget about bi-wiring or bi-amping; they don't help at all and can lead to sonic problems; just use good quality heavy gauge speaker wire.

The fronts are where 90% of your sound quality is determined, and the MF sounds MUCH better (it is really excellent, while the Emotiva IMO is only mediocre).

Use whatever you have to for the other 3 channels.

I would just use the Denon for those 3 channels and forget about the Emotiva altogether. The other 3 channels do not require a lot of power, and the Denon will do a good job of running them; it has adequate power to run those 3 channels, while the MF does the heavy lifting on the front channels,

Also, use the balanced interconnects from the OPPO direct to the M6; that will also give you maximum fidelity there for both music and video.
