In looking at multichannel amps for both home theater and music applications, there is a relatively long list of good amps--each with its own qualities. In looking at the Cinepro line, obviously, their power ratings and parts counts such as transformer size, etc. are very impressive, along with their bridging capabilities for anywhere from a 3 to 6 channel amp for flexibility. While not crazy about the "professional" look of the Cinepro line, I have read good reviews of its power capabilities and its impact on music and movies. Home Theater mag gave the 3k6SE Gold a 97 for performance and 96 in build quality. I believe the knock on Cinepro is that it is not a good quality amp for two channel music, just a brute for home theater. It appears with some of its recent lines--3K6SE Gold, the parts quality and music capabilities are improving. Anyway, with all things being equal, should one get the Cinepro with more power compared to other high-end amps from Krell, Classe, BAT, EAD, etc? Is there a "quality" difference? Does all the extra power come at a price? Thanks.
