This amp is the frontrunner so far. I have also considered Outlaw monoblocks and the B&K 200.3 but with the cinenova putting out 300 wpc compared to 200 wpc I like the cinenova better. Plus I can get a better price on it than the B&K. There are no local dealers for it so it would essentailly be a blind buy (deaf is more like it). Are there any owners out there that can give some impressions? How is it for movies - can it deliver it a split seconds notice when all of a sudden a bomb goes off? This would be my first "seperate" so I welcome any thoughts/suggestions/advice. My current setup includes: Denon AVR-3803 - will be used as pre/pro along with the amps for surround duty Def Tech BP7001's and CLR3000 - the benefactors of the new amp.
