I just bought a 1 1/2 year old Powermaster 2000 for $2,900. This sucker is heavy (120 lbs). The Fedex guy just left it at my door while I was out of town. My wife and daughter had a fun time dragging it inside the house. I hadn't mentioned to her that I spent for $$$ on HT stuff, HEHEHE. Anyway I think the amp is everything the critics say it is. Very fully soundstage almost 3-D. In fact when I play it in straight 2 channel stereo mode, it almost sounds like my L7 music mode. It sounds very different than my B&K 7270 which is a great amp, don't get me wrong. I guess the Powermaster is in a different league. If there any fellow Powermaster owners out there, are there any operating tips? Well this should keep me satisfied for awhile, maybe six months.
