OK I currently have a KM-Z1 6 channel 125 wpc amp and I am running a 7.1 setup. Obviously, you can all see the problem. Right now I am leaving one channel on the KM-Z1 idle and running my rear rears off an old Sony receiver I had lying around. Thats just not cutting it anymore. The main problem is that it has the cheap tension mounts for speaker wire and I can't fit any decent gauge wire in there. I just went for high end speaker wire with banana terminators and there is no way for me to use them with it. Also I don't think it has enough juice to keep up with the KM-Z1. So anyway, I am now in the market for a very inexpensive monoblock for my center or stereo amp for my mains. My requirements are 125 wpc or more and must accept banana plugs for speaker wire. I'd like to avoid a fan if possible. And I'd like to keep the budget as low as possible without buying a piece of junk (hopefully under $300 MAX). Price is my main consideration with quality being a close second. I'd rather get a stereo amp for my mains but I can't seem to find any good ones in the price range. I was interested in the Marantz MA500 at just under $200 but I can't seem to find it anywhere anymore. I have found a MA6100 at $238 which seems to be my best choice so far (besides waiting for an ebay special). If anyone has any other suggestions I'd love to hear them.
