    I recently saw a thread dealing with QSC professional
    amps for use in home theater. I once used (borrowed)
    a very high power Yamaha pro amp and found it to be as
    good as Brystons I had tried, either for bass (good punch)
    or higher frequency reproduction.
    So why do "audiophiles" in magazines rail against these
    devices for music or home theater? Seems like they offer
    (in some cases) tremendous value for the money.

    You're right. Perhaps its because they don't have fancy packaging and nice exterior designs, and cost too little. I dunno...many pro amps are right up there with their "audiophile" counterparts. The Cinepro and Earthquake amps come to mind. John Kotches of Secrets and Widescreen Review himself thinks that the Cinepro 3K6SE-Gold performs just about as well as the BAT VK-6200 and Theta Dreadnaught, both of which are the respective company's flagship multi-channel amps.

    I have been interested in the same, have a local dealer in Australia, selling Phonic Amplifiers, http://www.phonic.com/, any one used these ones, as I am looking to buy the Rotel 1066 prepro but am finding it hard to budget for the rotel amps, and if these are as good as they say may be a bargain to go for these now...
