    I own a Denon 2802 and am looking into getting a parasound Halo amp for my Klipsch RF3II's. Does anyone think that this is a good idea? Will I notice a diffrence? I read here on HTF and a member said the amp was TOO warm. If that's true I think it would be a great match for the Klipsch.
    -Is the Denon 2802 a good pre amp? I want to cut down on some of the noise I get. It's hard to hear but I can.
    Thanks for any help[​IMG]

    Mathew, look ath the thread on the receiver forum under
    "NEW AMP... IS IT WORKING?" that should give you an idea of what a seperate power amp can add to your audio bliss

    In my opinion adding a decent amp to ANY receiver even the flagship ones will be an improvement over the receivers amps.

    I had Denon 2800 with Paradigm 60's. I tried a Rotel 5x100 amp and there was very little difference, then I tried Parasound 2205 5x220 and the sound was considerably better more clear and detailed. Try it first and if the improvement is worth the dollars make the decision. In my case the sound quality was overwhelming. The Parasound amp can be gotten at great prices these days.
