I've had my Denon 3802 and Studio 20's for about 4-5 months now and i'm finally getting to like it. It's time to search for an amp to compliment my Sutdio 20's and hopefully help it reach its full potential. After reading numerous posts about people getting excellent results after adding a new amp to their system, i've been intrigued ever since. I had a chance to connect my system to a Sunfire Cinema Grand amp (thanks Miles) and noticed that it did improve the sound but not by a whole lot. More impact and little bit more coherence in the imaging department were the improvements I noticed. Keep in mind that we only listened to it for around 10-20 mins. I think that wasn't enough time to fully evaluate the difference that the amp made so i'm still keeping the door open for a separate amp. To fully evaluate an amp the best situation for me would be to home audition one. I've already called a couple of dealers around the GTA and so far only Brack will allow me to home audition their amps (Rotel 1070 & Bryston 3B). They would allow me to take home one amp on a Saturday of any week but i have to return it the following Monday. I do have to pay for the amp in full but i'll get a full refund when i take it back as long as there are no nicks or scratches. Kromer Radio only had integrated Cambridge amps available and they said that if i want to audition an Anthem amp, they'll have to order it and when they order something they treat it as good as sold. Kennedy HiFi didn't allow me to home audition any of their amps. It's a shame though that one guy in that store ruins the whole home theater experience for me since he is just such an elitist bastard prick even on when you talk to him nicely on the phone. Audio-One said that they only let customers who they 'know' home audition their stuff. Now i've been there at least 5 times but i haven't bought anything there yet so i guess they don't 'know' me. If anyone could mention any other dealers who are willing to home audition amps then that will be greatly appreciated. This is the list of amps i would like to home audition: Bryston 3B-ST Rotel RB-1070 Rotel RB-1080 Anthem MCA-20 Parasound 1000A Parasound 1500A Odyssey Stratos Obviously it would be more difficult to get a hold of the Odyssey Stratos. It’s another highly regarded internet only product that according to many people would be worth the risk. If anyone within the GTA is willing to let me check out his/her Odyssey amp then I would be forever grateful. Lending an Odyssey amp to a virtual stranger would of course be too much to ask so I’ll just bring my stuff in your house and we could evaluate it within your home. What I’m aiming to achieve here is to find out whether adding an amp would be the next logical upgrade for me. I use my home theater system primarily for music and at the moment and I think a lot of people would agree that an SVS 16-46CS+ sub would offer me the greatest improvement. But if I encounter an amp that: Greatly improves the bass response of my 20’s Considerably opens up the imaging and soundstage of my 20’s and most of all, add that intangible factor that makes you smile like a silly fool when you listen to music then I will seriously reconsider shifting my funds into purchasing an amp instead of a sub.
