    Hi everyone,

    I've narrowed it down to 3 choices for amplifiers:

    Parasound HCA-2205AT
    Audio Refinement Multi 5 (125WX5)
    Rotel RMB-1095

    The Parasound and Rotel I cannot listen to before purchasing, the audio refinement I currently have at home and like it soo far, sounds much better than the amps in my Onkyo 898. I can get a good deal on all threee, so price really isnt a concern. I just want whats sounds best and something that has lotsa reserve power.

    I'm using B&W CDM9NT and CDMCNT for speakers.
    My system is about 50/50 music movies.

    What do you guys think?

    I have no experience with Audio refinement but I can tell you that the Parasound and the Rotel are excellent amps. Parasound is a little warmer than the Rotel. The Rotel is a little more to the neutral side. Plus Rotels are a good match to B&W's. I think you wouldn't go wrong with either.
