As some of you know, I have recently reshifted my focus on two channel audio for the time being. I sold off my Anthem MCA-5 amp and my Paradigm reference speakers and am going for a better reproduction of two channel music. I am planning to change speakers as well to the 25th anniversary ACI Sapphires. The only components in my system that are remaining are my Anthem AVM-20 and Sony SCD-555ES. Here is my wish list for a new amp... Because I do plan to return to HT at sometime in the future (hence, the rationale behind my keeping of the AVM-20), I would prefer the amp to be SS, not tube. I would like it to be at least 125wpc, preferably 150. I'm not going to get into specs too much because I honestly don't believe in them all that much...I let my ears decide. But I want an amp that can play to loud levels without strain and still sound musical...full bodied, slightly on the warm side without sacrificing detail. I was hoping for suggestions and feedback. My budget would range from $1400-1800 for the two channels, and I would consider used equipment. On my audition/look-see list includes... Proceed HPA-2 Parasound Halo A21 Bel Canto Evo2 (may be out of my price range, even used) Odyssey Audio Dual Mono's Anyone have any other suggestions or feedback? I appreciate it.
