I am picking up some amps for christmas and was wondering what your impressions would be for these amps that I have found for reasonable prices for me and should suit my speakers well. I am picking up a marantz ma6100 mono amp which is 125x1 for my center and either a AMC2100 which is 100x2 or an Onkyo m-282 which I have seen varying numbers but I believe is 105x2 all @ 8 ohms. They are both around the same price and both would be purchased new so I was wondering which of the two amps you guys would recommend for running my mains. Also this is my first step into seperates so I am not totally sure on how to set them up. I need RCA connectors correct? Is it the ones that are like a Y so they go from the preout on my reciever to the two inputs on each amp? Thanks for your help!
