***The header should read "3-Channel Amps"*** I've decided to add a 3-channel amp to my system to replace the 2-channel Sumo I picked up recently to supplement my Pioneer Elite receiver for driving the front speakers. I upgraded my center channel speaker to the B&W Nautilus HTM1 to go with my N804 mains and I decided I wanted amplification of equal quality across the front three channels. Within my budget and taste, I have narrowed the search down to either a used Parasound HCA-2003 and a new (discontinued) Acurus A200X3. Both amps are rated for 200wpc into 8 ohms and both should have more than enough current capacity to drive the B&Ws. There is a $300 price difference in favor of the Parasound, but I do not consider that a factor as I feel a new product from a dealer offsets the price advantage of a used piece from an individual that I don't know personally. I would ask anyone with experience with these two amps to offer any advice they could. Frankly, I am leaning toward the Acurus based on research up to this point, but now I would hope for practical advice based on personal experience (I don't have the luxury of being able to audition either of these pieces myself). Thanks for any help. BTW, anyone looking for an outstanding stereo amp either for a dedicated music system or to supplement a good AV receiver, I would be willing to sell the Sumo Andromeda for exactly what I paid for it (used) less than a month ago.
