I'm looking for a 5-channel amp to pair up with a used Anthem AVM2 that I'm going to buy from a friend. I like the MCA5 but would rather spend a little less. I was thinking of buying a reciever for this system in the $2000 range, but thought that since I could get good deal on the AVM2 ($1000) I could pair it with a decent amp and have a better sounding system for the same price. I can get the PVA 5 from a local dealer for around $900. Has any one tried any of the PVA series amps? Other suggestions to demo in this price range?
