Got to thinking about what I would move to next from what I have now, whether 6 months from now, or more likely , years from now. I have an Acurus A200 and A200x5 for 7.1. Love 'em. But like all people in this hobby, just interested in what I would go for next. Ground rules: solid state, one stereo plus one 5 channel amp, 200W/channel is what I have and a benchmark, but not in stone. I kind of rank all these makers similarly to Acurus: B&K, Anthem, ATI, Outlaw, Sherbourn, & Rotel. These, I put a notch above: Cinepro, Proceed, Krell, Bryston, Aragon, & Threshold. The 1st catagory is in the $400-500/channel new range, $200-250/channel used. The 2nd, I don't know, maybe pushing $750/ch new, and $500/ch used? (Usually, stereo amps are a little more per channel, 5 ch a little less.) Not looking to spend $10g's on an amp! My rating/ranking is based on (somewhat) my own use, professional mag reviews, audioreview.com, ecoustics.com, and here of course. There are 4 manufacturers I would definately *not* buy from (poor reliability, poor performance, etc), but that isn't really the point. The real point is, is in your opinion, to get to a definate difference in quality and performance from what I have, at just a slightly higher cost, what would you suggest? Got to admit, Bryston and their 20 year warranty at this stage of the game, certainly has me intrigued.
