    Jamie-you don't state your budget or anything else about what type of wattage you're looking for, etc, so you may want to edit your post.

    However, there is a B&K 3-channel amp on audiogon right now for around $900...

    Good point. I'd like to spend no more than $450.00 to $500.00. I know that limits what is out there, but I just want some better sound up front. I was thinking an Acurus, Rotel, or Parasound since that pretty much limits what I can do with a budget of $500.00. I'm wanting to push a 4 ohm load. The speakers are pretty efficient already at 90.

    Sorry, don't have one to sell, but Acurus should do ya real well. I've used their 3-channel 200w amp for about 7 years now, and it is a powerhouse. Clean, neutral, and makes my speakers sing like the angels.

    I'm sure your other choices are great too.

    I have an MCA-3 Anthem series I that I've been using for 5 or 6 years. It sounds very nice. It went for $700 new and I see them on ebay going for around $500. Good luck.

    You could buy three Audiosource Amp One/A amps and run them in bridged mono at 200 Watts each channel. These have gotten some great press and generally go for 100-125 each on ebay.

    I know absolutely nothing about these, but you may want to review digital amps as well. Seems like I just saw a thread on here discussing a panasonic amp that was very inexpensive and the thread author liked it above Rotel and many others. Just a thought...
