All stereo amplifiers are two channels (left and right), so this would work as long as you had a receiver or pre-pro to do the processing.

Can this be multi- channel (like take a 9.2.2 system to 11.2.2.)?

Sorry for being dumb and new to Home Theater. Appreciate the help. Always harder to be helpful on the internet than sardonic, no?

Emotiva lists their refurbished amps under the user name jadedesign on ebay. They got some in stock now. The only thing I noticed is they used to give a one year warranty. Now the amps are sold without warranty. Some good deals there though.

If you mean your receiver can handle 9.2.2 speakers and you have outs to another amplifier (this emotiva) to power your additional 2 speakers. then yes, this would technically work but i feel you can get much better alternatives. But this does have triggers to do that so when you turn on your main receiver this will turn on with it.

That is exactly what I mean. I have a 9.2 receiver (Denon AVR-X4700H; building an new HT), and going to do full 11.2. I am assuming I need an external amp or another receiver for the final two speakers?

What would be a better alternative? Thanks!

I was trying to find it and of course now that I'm looking I can't find it. But there are just essentially cheaper 2 channel amps designed specifically for these (they look like car amps) and are probably easier to integrate. You're paying a bit more for higher wattage / features on the emotiva that you might not need for your extra two speakers.

Thats what I was thinking, but didn't know if it's better to run all four atmos off of a dedicated 4 channel amp, or if running just two of them off of something like this is no different. As going to four channel seems a big jump in amp price.

Yes. I have a demon 4400. I do not personally use this amp, opted for the cheaper audio source 100vs that can be found on amazon for approx $100. Keep in mind this amp is driving 2 of the 4 Atmos speakers in your set up. You do not need a work horse, just a simple amp will do. Don't forget to have RCA's to send the signal from the receiver to the amp & a trigger cable (if needed). Set up with audyssey will walk you through everything!

If money is important, just hit up some of your local thrift/goodwill stores. I've picked up several very nice AV receivers lately for almost nothing. I assume people dump these because most lack hdmi. I got a Sony DA50ES for $7!! Picked a super clean Denon the other day for $15. I found an Onkyo on the curb last week for FREE. Other than being dirty, it works perfectly. Anyway, connect the rca/phono outputs from your main Amp/processor for whichever speakers you are trying to power to the one of the cheap secondhand AV receiver's rca/phono inputs. You can use any of them (except the actual "phono" input, ironically, lol). I've used the CD input. Set that source to "direct"/pure/straight/etc on the secondhand receiver and set the volume to 50%. If the secondhand receiver is something like a Denon that has 5 channel stereo, you can connect two pairs of speakers to it for 4 overhead atmos speakers. One pair connects to the front left/right speaker jacks and the second pair connects to the surround speakers jacks. Whatever secondhand receiver you find, do a factory reset before doing anything else and go in and set all channels to "large" and set sub to "no". You're going to be doing all you crossover settings in your main amp. Also, if you're powering two pairs of speakers from the front and surround speaker outputs, make sure they're both set to 0db level and 0 millisecond delay in the setup menu. You could also simplify the whole thing by using both speaker A and speaker B jacks in the second hand receiver for two pairs of atmos speakers rather than doing the "5 channel stereo" thing and just set it to regular stereo output, but only as long as your speakers aren't low impedance.

Believe me, unless something is "broken" you will NOT be able to tell an audible difference between an amp like this Emotiva and a "good" cheap secondhand AV receiver for atmos or surround speakers.

Looking for something small like this for a small above-the-cabinets system in the kitchen. No remote, though... gahh.
