    Does anyone know what the THX Ultra2 requirements are for amplifiers? I noticed that the new Parasound Halo amplifiers, the A51 and JC-1 are THX Ultra2 classified. Any idea of what this might mean as far as performance, build quality or ability to play movies/music, etc? If one was going to build a THX Ultra2 speaker setup, would having THX Ultra2 amplifiers be a consideration or of any importance to match with a THX Ultra2 SSP?

    THX certification is a real come-on nowadays. No one, except the manufacturers and Lucasfilm, know the criteria.

    Most well made amps can meet or beat THX specs.

    They want you to think getting all THX gear is absolutely essential, but it is not.

    Trust your own ears.
