I've been powering my HT with a series of 3 mis-matched amps but have squeezed $1,000 from the budget to get a proper 5 channel amp. (Currently have a Sherwood Newcastle AVP-9080R processor, paradigm studio 20's and center channel, M&K sub.)

I'm looking for a good 5 channel amp. The best deal I've seen is the Outlaw 7125 for $999 (yes, I know it's 7 channels). It seems everything else is $1,500 and up. Any thoughts?

As always thanks for the help.

Bob
