    I am looking for a 2 Channel amp for my back surround speakers. Any thoughts on what a good amp would cost?

    Thanks

    Thanks Geno
    What was i thinking?

    I have a avr 520, and i was thinking of using a technics receiver to run the 7.1, it worked but the power or sound was not up to the other five channels. it was so quiet. So i need an amp with more power. Something compareable with avr 520. Price hopefully in the 400-500 dollar range. I am using DTS 6.1.

    Bob,
    Try looking at www.canuckaudiomart.com. They have some amplifiers within your price range (i.e.used Rotel, etc.).

    Bob,

    Was that $400-500US or CDN?

    If it's US you can find a used Bryston in that range.Maybe you could use this to power your mains.

    I have the HK 8000 and i'm not sure if the amps in the 520 are assignable like in the 8000.

    What kind of speakers do you have?
