I purchased a verus forte system about eight months ago and am currently powering it with a Onkyo TX-SR703 reciver, 100 wpc, that I have had for years. The system sounds great but the reciver is lacking HDMI and other features so it is next on my list to be upgraded. I have decided to go with separates from either outlaw audio or Emotiva.

In a separates system from either of these manufactures how many watts would be optimal for the forte towers, forte center, and forte satellites. I get that the more the better but in your experiance with these speakers at what wattage would you say they really start to open up.

Hello Gilbert,
I had to do the same thing. This just means that your garage system is about to get a big upgrade.
Your Forte system should perk up nicely with around 140-200 watts. I really like what Emotiva has to offer for power and reasonable pricing. Take a look at the Emotiva UMC-200 7.1 Home Theater Preamp, XPA-3 – 200W x 3, and the XPA-200 – 150W x 2. The XPA-3 would be more suited for the Forte towers, and center. The XPA-200 would run the Forte Satelites. This set up should run you around $1657.00 and will power your speakers very well. Hopefully this helps with your search.
Let me know if you have any additinal questions.

Regards,
Mike

hey guys. I’m an audiophile noob, so to say. I had the pleasure of owning 5Ts as my stereo speakers paired with a Yamaha Receiver but left that set up at the parents’ house and now I’m ready to treat myself to something proper. I use these mostly for music so prefer a stereo setup with a subwoofer. The Emotiva setup above sounds great, but what happens to the subwoofer? Is that powered by the pre-amp/processor?

Thank you

The Verus line would be a very nice step up from the 5Ts. The subwoofer will conect to the sub-out from your pre-amp/processor which will only send a source signal to the subwoofer. The subwoofer is self powered with it’s own internal amplifier.
