Hi all, I'm planning on using a pair of Mezzo Utopias for HT/HiFi front stereo. I tried them with a Rotel RMB-1095 5x200W and then heard them with a Chord 350W/Ch stereo power amp. Needless to say the difference in sound quality was like day and night. I've decided to focus on getting a good 2ch amp to drive the Utopias, and am looking for advice on a good 250-300W power amp around the US$2000-3000 price range. The Utopias need an amp with a lot of drive, and I was looking at the Meridian 300w 2ch amp (559) but the local dealer won't sell it for anything less than his US$4500 RRP (I was going to buy a 596 DVD player too, but this idiot really gave me the s**ts). Any comments from Mezzo Utopia / Meridian owners would be greatly appreciated !
