    What would be a good amp for def tech 2002tl's?
    Looking for a two channel or three right now, for cost reasons. How is Adcom, Parasound or last years Rotel model? (looking for used, at least 150 watts per channel)
    Cheers

    I have Def tech BP 2002 and CLR 2002 I drive with with a B&K AV5000. It has less power than you are looking for (105 wpc) but I have always been pleased.If your Def Tech's are power towers you can probably get away with less power.

    I have 2002tl's also and use the Rotel 1075 to power them and my center and surrounds. 120 conservative watts, all channels driven, 8 ohm load. I have no complaints.

    I have BP20's on an ADCOM 555. Awesome! My HT setup is BP20 fronts, CLR2000 center, BP2X surround on a Sony DA3. Not too bad, but doesn't compare to the ADCOM. Have fun!

    I drove my Def Tech setup with various models of Parasound amplifiers for several years with excellent results.

    I am currently using a B&K Reference 200.7 and am also very pleased

    The Adcom line is very good as far as power amps are concerned. I have used a 555, which is 200 x 5, in the past and was always pleased with the results on my Def Tech BP 20s.
