I thinking about adding an amp to my pioneer elite 45tx. I am looking at an anthem or parasound multi-channel amp to go with my current athena As-b2(5 speaker set-up) and my future paradigm 40s. I am considering the halo & clasical lines from parasound, and the mca series for anthem. My current listening is 70/30 hometheater/music. Once i complete my system, it will be 50/50. I am unable to audition either of these amps, but I can get a good deal on both of them. If it matters, I am using a pioneer elite 37 dvd player.
