Alright, so I have finally decided to dive into the world of seperates. My first purchase I have decided is going to be the amp. My only question is which is the most recommended for HT & Music? Money isn't really an issue, however, I would like the best deal I can get. I have been looking at Marantz (ma500, ma700), Parasound (hca 2205, 1205, 1500, 1200 etc.), and Rotel and just can't seem to decide on one. Should I go the monoblock route (i.e. Marantz ma500's and 700's), the 2-channel route or go for the 5 channel amp. Is there better sound found from 5 monoblocks as opposed to a 5channel? Any info/opinions would be appreciated. And if you guys need any more information from me, I'd be happy to provide. Thanks!
