    I need a four channel amp to drive side surrounds and rear surrounds only.
    Is there such a beast, or will I need to get a 5 channel amp and not use 1 channel????
    Perhaps get two two channel amps???
    Any suggestions for a total cost of 1K ??
    Thanks,

    I would also look at the Sony TA-N9000ES, it has 2,3,4,5 modes and reviews on the power amp are great. I beleive you can get it for $900

    What are you using right now for driving your speakers(make and wattage). How many Ohms are your speakers? Rotel makes a nice AMP(RMB-1066) which is 6 channel and can be configured all the way down to 3 channel.

    Reliableaudiovideo.com has the ATI 1504 for $1128. I just purchased a factory new Acurus A200X5 from Ubid for $869.00.
