Default J2 for home theater applications?

Hello, everyone,

New here. With a strange quesiton.

I have a First Watt J2 on my way. I would like to mate it with my Altec 846A speakers for music.

The same speakers also searve as the main speakers for my 5.1 home theater. So my question is, will J2 be fine for home theater applications? (Really don't want to swith the plugs etc.) Can it handle the dynamics? Anyone try that?

I guess I can try to find out when my unit arrives. Still I think it is a good idea to ask because I don't want funny things happen to my gears.

Thanks a lot.


WYAN

Zen, thanks. If J2 works great for the main speakers in 5.1 movies, I might get crazy enough to add another two for center and surround. All my speakers are very sensitive.
