Amp: 3 channel vs 5 channel

Looking to see best bang for buck...

Emotiva/Outlaw 3 channel vs 5 channel amps

Connecting to Onkyo TX706 AVR
Speakers: HSU-15 Hybrid (with VTF-15 sub)

Do i really need the 5 channels, or can i get by with the front 3 by amp, and surround by AVR?

You'll be fine with a 3 channel amp for the LCR and using the receiver's amps for the rears surrounds.

You really don't need an external amp for the HB-1 speakers at all. The HB-1 are 8 ohms with a 92dB sensitivity and your Ontyo TX-706 receiver is 100 watts per channel and is THX Select2 certified which means it's good in a room up to 2000 cubic feet, so you'll be able to play really loud even without an external amp.
