Last weekend I bought a Parasound Halo A 23 amp (2 channel). I really love the sound paired with my Studio 40s. Main goal was to add finesse to 2 channel music. The Parasound accomplished that. But...I'm kind of itching for a 5 channel amp. I don't have the dough to keep buying new amps as I get the itch to upgrade. This amp will have to stay with me for a long time. In the future I might want to go with a pre/pro. I also want to use my SACD player in multi-channel, so I'm worried the 2 channel won't deliver satisfying results. The Parasound Halo A 21 (5 channel) is $2000, quite a bit more than the 2 channel ($850), though the salesman said he knock some off for me. I can swing the money, but feel really guilty about tossing $2000 into an amp. I have other things that need monetary attention, if you know what I mean. I have always come hear looking for advice, with the intention of making my own informed decision. But I'm stuck. So please tell me what to do. Well, if anyone here has faced a similar dilemma, I would love to hear how you solved it. Thanks!
