Okay gang, I'm surely going to need some advice here. Been condsidering a new receiver lately (currently quite pleased with my Yammie 795A) mainly for DPLII; thought I'd go with the new 1200 or 2200 (I like Yamaha ), but the prices here in Canada are somewhat steep (before any of our friends in the USA suggest various e-tailers, I've ruled that out due to brokerage fees, warranty and service issues, blah, blah, blah...I'll be making a purchase from a local B&M dealer). The prices are steep enough that I figure I oughtta grow up and step into separates, one piece at a time. To that end, a dealer in Toronto is advertising all their Adcom gear "at cost", so they say. I'm interested, therefore, in the Adcom GFA-7500, a five channel, THX-cert. amp. Power is rated at [email protected] ohms, [email protected] ohms (not exactly double the 8ohm figure, is it? ) Let me be clear: I'm drawn to this unit simply because of the price ($1500 CDN, just under a grand in Eagle bucks, BTW), and if I were to buy it, I'd consider it a happy fluke. I'd continue using the 795A as a pre-pro for the time being (no hurry for DPLII), so if the Adcom/Yammie combo isn't favourable, no biggie; I could live for a while with that config. Also, my speakers are currently PSB Image 4T, 8C, and 3LR (surround); these too, will likely be upgraded at some point (considering Axiom M60 or M80). Can anyone offer some opinion on the Adcom unit, or point out flaws in my thinking? I can take it, guys! Also, are there any other brands/models of 5-channel amps at this price I ought to know about (not too interested in any used gear)? One last thing: the small print in the ad says "items subject to prior sale". Is that "dealer-ese" for units that have been returned to the store's stock for any given reason? Thanks for any consideration or advice you may offer. Cheers! DS.
