    You could add a Parasound HCA855a(only 5 channel) for roughly $400 used. Can be found on ebay/audiogon. I have it added to my Pioneer 811.

    What is your price range.....a 7 channel amp isn't cheap....

    That might be tough to find a 7 channel. 5 channel yes....

    I'd go used and go 5 channels now and then pick up a 2 channel latter (or another 5 channel if you intend to bi-amp your mains and center).

    you should look @ the harmon kardon pa5800. they are hard to come by nowadays but beat the pants off of the newer pa4000. try audiogon, or ebay.

    the parasound hca 1206 is the beast of this group...the other 2 are not even in the same class. if you can afford the 1206...i would say "get the 1206".

    between the parasound hca 855a and the harmon kardon pa5800, i'd probably go with the HK based on its high amperage [+/- 73].
