    Well, you have some options in that category...what is your budget? what speakers are you planning to drive with it? With a little more information I think the folks on the forum can steer you in the right direction.
    My nomination? This one:

    It can be configured as a 5 channel amp that runs 400 watts at 4 ohms. Gonna cost you though. About six grand I believe. That's where budget info makes things more helpful.
    I am sure more suggestions will follow.

    John,

    switch off the CAPS, please. In Inet world CAPS = shouting. No need for it here.

    5 chan amp 200+ ? Hm... you can look at offers from Rotel, Paradigm, ATI; also Bryston, Theta, etc.

    Maybe you can tell us a little more - first what type/size/shape of romm you have; then waht speakers and so on. Usually it is smart to start from speakers and go way back to sources... saves lot of money.

    I've really enjoyed my Sherbourn 5/1500 (now replaced by the 5/1500a), which is 200 watts X 5 into 8 ohms, 300 watts into 4 ohms. Check the AV Science website. I got mine for $1365.00.
