After posting several threads on this topic, and doing countless hours of research, I have narrowed it down to these choices. Please let me know what you folks think of these, and if you own them, what price should I expect to pay. I know the MSRP of these, but I'm looking for a price to walk into the dealer with and expect to pay. I would love to know what I should be willing to pay for any of these. I am only 22, so when a dealer sees me, I am expected to pay full price The only place that takes me seriously, and doesn't expect full MSRP from me is 2.5 hours away, and in Canada. I have no objection driving up there, but it would be nice to be taken seriously in my own state I can get the Anthem in Canada for around 1100-1200.00 US. My local Parasound dealer wants full MSRP for the 2205, but I read on this forum that someone said the 2205 can be had for 1500.00 US, If this is true, please tell me where, and If they are an authorized dealer. The Rotel 1095 retails for 1999.00 US, but does anyone have any idea what I could possibly get one of these for? And as for the B&K reference 7250 (MSRP of 2500.00 US), There is an online dealer that claims to be an Authorized dealer of B&K(I called B&K and they confirmed this), who has the Reference 7250 for 1899.00 US plus shipping. Is this a good deal for this amp. Also, is this amp a quantum leap from the Anthem and Parasound? I don't really want to spend 2,000 on an amp, but if it's a huge difference, I may consider it. Like I said before, I don't mind traveling a few hours for a better deal. I value all of your advice, so please let me know what you think. Thanks again, Fred M. DeGrandis Jr.
