    I am seriously considering the Outlaw 950 (to replace my 1050) and am looking for reccomendations of 5 channel amps. 65-100wpc would be adequate for my needs and I would like to keep the price under $500, if possible [​IMG] The Rotel RMB-1066 looks like it might fit the bill, but I was wondering what other amps I should consider (new and used).

    John, could you post where you can get these amps at for those prices? I'm interested in picking up a cheap amp also. Thanks!

    I picked up a Sherwood AM 9080 which is 120wpc from UBid.com for 349.00 brand new. I haven't seen any more lately though.

    Well I just sold my sherwood 9080 yesterday on ebay for 385.00[​IMG]
    The best places I have found are audiogon.com and if you keep checking ebay for the NEWLY listed amps, you can get lucky and get a steal with the BUT IT NOW price..hope this helps
