    I will be buying a pair of Klipsch RB5's solely for music playback, and I would like an amp that's decent but isn't too expensive. By not too expensive I mean less than $2000 CAN ($1300 US). Some possibilities I've found are:

    Bryston 3B ST 2x120 watts - $2000

    Rotel RB-1080 2x200 watts - $1500

    ATI AT1502 2x150 watts - $1275

    These are the prices that dealers gave me when I phoned them, so I will be able to bargain them down a little.

    Can you guys suggest anything else I should take a look at?

    BTW, I'm using a Denon 2802 as a preamp.

    I'm using an Acurus (Mondial) 100x3 to power my Heresy II's with a Denon 2801 as a pre-amp. Significant improvement over the 2801 alone and the Acurus has a great musicality to it.

    Cheap too. Picked mine up on Ebay for $300. They are quite a bargain for the quality you get.
