    Default Which amp?

    Looking to update the old Luxman amp but $'s are a bit tight so want to get it as right as i can.

    There is a local dealer offering new Parasound new classis 2100/2025 pre/pro combo for $1800 australian.(about $800 off) and there is a local private seller with a Bel Canto S300i intergrated for $1500.00 ($2300.00 new)

    Has anyone got some feedback on these that can give i hint which is the best way to go?

    Have always liked the idea on going seperates but the Bel Canto gear has got some great reviews.

    The new amp will be powering my monitor 12's.

    Cheers

    You'll have no issues dealing with Nick ... and his pricing is rediculous! When he decides to sell something, it's like he wants to get a divorce from some nagging old hag (I have no experience with said species, BTW) and can't wait to get it boxed up and out the door.

    Linky to the FM thread: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73488

    P.S. and I'm sure that if he allowed himself to chime in here, it's not a shameless plug, he's just convinced, from what you wrote, that the Odyssey gear would be a great choice for your situation.

    Thanks Kex.



    I wouldn't have usually put a plug in someones thread like this.

    But I can honestly say that if the OP is wanting to get into 2 channel separates. This would be a great way. For the price and performance value of the two. I think they would be hard to beat for the money. But thats just my opinion.



    Good luck with what ever you do though.;)



    Cheers

    Sheesh no one bothered to answer his question.

    Braddles, Parasound gear is top notch. I had a 1500A that now resides with my brother who enjoys the power it feeds his LSI 7's with authority. You can't go wrong with them.

    I have no other experience with Bel Canto gear.

    I couldn't find a 2025 amp, they have a 2125 and a 2250 amp.

    I would personally get the 2250, that way if you ever step up to harder to drive speakers you will be all set.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the fedback guys.

    Cfrizz: sorry mate ,your right, typo from me. Its the 2125 amp. I would love the bigger 2250 too mate but they only had 1 and that when pretty quick.

    Good to hear some positive feedback on the Parasound gear. The 2100/2125 got some great reviews here in OZ. Great value for money most said.

    I would love to buy some gear from any of you guys as i know you look after your stuff well but with the aussie $ at about 65 us cents at the moment (was 99cents 4 months ago)and the cost of shipping it here i dont think its viable.
