    I'm looking for a good home theater amp that:

    -retails for less than $2,500.
    -is 5 channel.
    -at least 200 watts x 5 into 8 ohms
    -has clipping indicators.

    I know Adcom makes one.......anyone else?

    What about a 2 channel and a 3 channel that meets all the other requirements I mentioned above?

    Your thoughts........?

    If you're willing to go used (or up your budget) McIntosh amps provide not only an indicator for clipping levels, but (upon sensing clipping levels) automatically lower the input to the amp to prevent clipping without any audible side-effects.

    I dont know this for sure but it seems like the Sherbourn has clipping indicators. Also I think Marantz' 5 channel amp has those. They are both in your range.

    Forgot about the Rotel's new MC amps they also have clipping indicators. Also within your price range.
