I am looking in getting a good 3 or 5 channel amp in the $1500 - $2000 region and was going to use my old reciever(yamaha htr 5280) as the pre/pro. I went looking for one and the sales man told me that I should be concerned with the amount of voltage my reciever can handle but I don't completely understand what he is talking about. He said that my reciever can limit the actual power of my amp. Can someone please help explain what he is talking about. Also if you can reccomend any amps in that price range I would really appreciate it By the way what would you say is the warmest (non bright) sounding amp? Do they even make a difference in brightness?
