    I will be using the Anthem PVA-20 version 2 digital processor. I'm ready to purchase a Anthem amps but I'm undecided whether to go with the PVA series or the MCA. There is more power with the MCA's vs. the PVA but is this the only difference? Is the sound quality the same? I've searched the web and can not find anything on a side by side comparison.

    My plan is to purchase two amps. One 5 channel amp and one 2 channel amp. The 2 channel will be cabled to my Thiel 3.5's and the 5 channel will be cabled to my B&W (2) ea CC6 series II (front center), (2) ea 602 series II (rear surround floor), (2) ea CDS6 series II (ceiling rear).

    I am a reasonable person, I do not think I blow my B&W speakers if I go with the MCA model. I plan to purchase this week. Your thoughts please.
