Further to the "Interesting Amplifier Article" which was and still is a hot topic, how do you think "entry level" or should I say, big bang for your buck amps compare to each other?
Examples: Rotel, Parasound, Adcom, Outlaw and the new Integra separates to name a few. Of course, I am comparing equal power ratings. To narrow it down, these amps would be driving 5 LSi speakers. Next, how would these amps match with a receiver being used as a pre, particularly an Integra 7.1? I know Mantis will roast me again but I do own this receiver and unless someone jumps out of my soup and buys it from me, I will have to make do until I can find a buyer. The idea of having an extra nice receiver just laying around the house rubs me the wrong way....child of a depression parent syndrome.
Is there a clear amp winner in this price range or is an amp an amp?
p.s. what is a good classified site to market HT equipment?
