    I'm looking for a 3 channel amp to power my fronts and center. (HTD Level 3 Towers)

    My budget is about 500-600 and i was looking at the rotel 1066 6 channel and bridging it to 3.

    What are other options in my price range. Can I get a 5 channel, for example Parasound 855 and bridge it into 3.

    I have a sony 30 es receiver and will eventually get a pre/pro but for right now, I just want some extra power for the front.

    I've had the Rotel RMB-1066 for a while now. Everything I've thrown at it sounds awesome. Worth the money if your on a limited budget. Below is a message I got from Rotel regarding the inner workings of the amp. You may also want to checkout the Hardware FS section. There is a Parasound 5 channel amp for $425.
    Dear Kevin,
    Thank you for your interest in Rotel! The toroidal transformer is rated for .500 KVA. There are six supply capacitors each rated at 6,800 uf. There are two bipolar output devices per channel each rated at 15 A.
    Best Regards,
