    We have the Klipsch Reference Series 7 speakers. Do you think we will notice any difference between these two amplifiers with these speakers? Will the Parasound HCA-1205A be "enough" for these speakers?

    The RF-7 has a sensitivity rating of 102dB @ 1watt/1meter and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms

    The HCA-1205A rated at 140w per ch @ 8 ohms will make them sing.

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    So, I won't gain much by getting the HCA-2205A, right?

    You'd split your ear drums and go deaf before you noticed a difference. Save your money and go w/ the 1205.

    I've got a HCA-1205A. Night & day difference between the Parasound and 70 x 7 integrated amplifier in my HK AVR525. The HK has now been demoted as a dedicated pre/pro. I am now getting a B&K 7270 to replace the 1205a. You won't be disapointed with the 1205a. Great amp for the money.

    Okay, major problem here!

    I just phoned my Parasound dealer to ask what was the price of the Parasound HCA-1205A, and he said that he doesn't have it anymore because it has been discountinued!

    What?!? Is this true?? If so, when will the HCA-1205A's replacement be released? Is there even going to be a replacement?

    I'd call or email Parasound. They have the 1205A listed as a current product at their site. Perhaps, they could steer you toward a dealer close to you who has the unit.

    umit,

    I haven't called my dealer asking why he said it was discountinued.

    He does have the Parasound HCA-2205A for $1,752.
