    Default New amp - under $2k, ideas?

    Here is my system:

    Parasound Halo A23
    Parasound Halo A52
    Main - LSI 15
    Center - LSIC
    Surrounds - LC65FX
    Sub - DSW600

    I am looking at all possible amps or pre-amp processors. My family watches directv and blue-ray movies, that's pretty much it (hence 2 HDMI inputs). I don't want a receiver/pre-amp with tons of gizmos (won't use). Just want a great receiver to last quite some time. I am partial to Denon but............

    Interested in something used if you got it. Must have pre outs.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Pio Elite SC07 should be faily cheap @ under 1k and offer tons of performace. Search the forum for tons of reviews as there are a ton of us here that own the SC05/07. Also look for Icepower. If you cant find the 07, check out the SC 25/27 as they are newer models.

    Adcom makes some pretty rock solid amps for 5 and 7 channel systems. I can get the hook up if you are interested. :D
