Need amp to power atmos speakers

zodiac711 4,464 1,749 April 25, 2016 at 11:19 AM
I have an Onkyo TX-RZ900 receiver, which can power 7 channels, but allows for hooking up a seperate power amp to run 2 channels (with caveat that it can only process 7 channels, so the extra 2 channels will be "ghost" channels).

No worries.

I just purchased the Pioneer Atmos add-on speakers for $100, and need an amp to power them. With limited atmos content, I'm looking to spend as little as possible (definitely no more than $100), but still have something that's OK.

I don't know if those inexpensive Class T amps would provide enough power or not (not to mention that I don't know anything about their levels of distortion). Or, I see there's a Pyle PAMP 100 on Amazon for $90... but the reviews are a bit a power amp... and that's definitely an option, and while price for a old stereo receiver can be had for cheap, seems like way more than what I'm needing... (not to mention I am also a bit limited on space in my entertainment console for something that large...)


Thanks in advance

What output on that receiver would go to the surround speakers? If you can do it, I would just get powered speakers and forget about another amp.
