Hi

I'm looking to purchase a second hand i225 amp to drive a pair of CM10s. I will be using a Yamaha RXA1010 as pre/pro. To be used for 80% movies and 20% music.

Anyone had experience with this amp or this setup, would appreciate your comments.:spend:

Thanks
Chrisn

Are you running the CM10s as a stereo pair or are they part of a surround configuration? I'm asking because if you're not running 7.1 or a second zone you could use the AVR to bi-amp the towers off zone2.

I don't have any personal experience with anthem but I have had experience with the cm10s and your AVR.

I have the B&W CM10 5.1 system. I am currently using a Rotel RMB 1075 to drive LCR and the AVR is driving RR and RL.

I tried the bi-amping option of the towers with the two remaining channels from the 1075 and sound did not improve, maybe got slightly worse.

I suspect it will be worse with the AVR, because power is not continuous.

Please share your experience with the CM10 and Yamaha RXA1010.

Thanks
Chrisn

Didn't get to hear them together (CM10 and 1010 are about 3 years apart) but our show room did have the 2030 connected to them for a while with CMC and M1 surround and it sounded good. More current is defiantly a good thing though.
