I'm in the market for a budget friendly ($150 or less) amp to power my CSi25 for home theater use. I already have two Audiosource 100s, and right now one is running in bridged mode to the CSi25 and the other one is powering my left and right speakers.
My plan is use two Audiosource 100s for the L/R speakers --- each one running in bridged mode and driving one speaker. My question is if anyone has any experience or thoughts on either the Parasound HCA-500 or the Parasound HCA-600 amps? I've read a lot of good reviews and comments on the higher-end line of Parasound HCA-xxxx series amps, and so I'm assuming the HCA-500 and HCA-600 are also solid performers.
I've read through as many amplifier threads as I could find here on Club Polk ... and know that the usual recommendations are Adcom, Carver, Sunfire, Rotel, etc. But, in almost all cases, those amps exceed my budget ... :(
Any thoughts / comments would be appreciated.
