You must be wondering when every one here is switching from SS to tubes, why am talking about digital amps. :)
I had been reading about these digital amps for some time and came across Panasonic SA-XR55. I did read very good things about this and other Panasonic receiver. What I liked about this is that in stereo mode it uses other channel amps for two channel. You can Bi-Amp or BiWire. All this for $229.99 at amazon.com. This is all mentioned in the manual.
Rotel just came out with RMB-1077(7 Channel Digital Amp) and Nuforce, Bel Canto are already established in this technology.
Best thing I heard about these amps is that they don’t loose steam on heavy or difficult loads and bottom end is very well defined and full.
I am thinking of trying this Panasonic offering as it wont set me back by big $s, what do you think it is a good idea ? I don’t know how close it will get me to Nuforce or Rotel. :)
Any one here has any opinion or feedback on these digital amps ?
