Sorry for yet another amp thread.
I called a local Parasound dealer to inquire about the HCA-1500A. When I told him I was planning to use primarily for two-channel stereo listening, he started trying to push me to HALO A23 at a hundred bucks less at $850. (HCA-1500A is $950 from this guy)
Since no one is jumping on my 1C's, they are looking like they are gonna be mine for awhile longer, I'm (obviously) using them as my control speaker. We all know how power hungry the SDA's are.
Is the gain in sound quality of the HALO gonna offset the power difference? 205W/ch for the HCA vs. 125W/ch for the HALO?
P.S.--> I'm fully aware I can find these for less used. I don't want used, so don't bother mentioning it. Thanks.
