    James I have had a 2003a for about 2 years now.I went to the amp from a RX-V1. At the time I had Paradigm Studio 100's and the CC450. This amp took conrtol of the power hungry 100's and made them sing!The bass is very controled and present.It brought the mids to the fore front with clarity and the top end is nice and crisp, not bright. This amp is a very nice amp and capable of bringing you to Reference levels.A good buy at $700. BTW I will have a Parasound 2205a for sell next week if you are interested.

    James,
    I added a 2nd 2200II yesterday...I'm loving two 2200IIs with four independent 1.2kVA transformers driving my front NHT 3.3 and AC2, and passive sw3p sub!
    I think you should get a 2nd 2200II for under $700 and drive your front 3 and 1 side speaker with the two 2200s. You can "fill" in the other side, both rears, and your SVS sub(s) with countless combos of parasound, samson amps.
    Or sell your samson s700, and get a 5 channel parasound (btw, I have a 1205a for sale).....2200II (mains), 1500A (center and 1 side), 1205A (two subs, other side, both rears) would rock for driving all 9 speakers. You'd just be missing a Lexicon and Sony TAP [​IMG]

    Steve,

    I'd be interested to hear how the Earthquake amp compares to your Parasound 2003A.

    James, I have the 2003A and the 2200II. I used to run the 2003A to power my mains and center and it sounded awesome. Now I run my 2200II to power the mains and the 2003A to power the center and rears. I could not tell a difference between the two amps when listening in stereo. The specs are very similar. I just wish the 2200II had a trigger connection.
