Not to make you feel bad but...
A more typical example - a Crown XTi 2000, the last two of which ran me less than $500 each.
Stereo, 2 ohms (per ch.) 1000W*
Stereo, 4 ohms (per ch.) 800W
Stereo, 8 ohms (per ch.) 475W
Bridge-Mono, 4 ohms 2000W*
Bridge-Mono, 8 ohms 1600W
The two power ratings with asterisks should probably be derated by 5-10% for HiFi purposes.
No, they aren't particularly pretty:
The XTi series amps have DSP built in, which allow one to obtain the function of electronic crossovers, parametric equalizers, etc. for no extra cost.
Behringer EP4000 @ < $400
8 Ω per channel 550 W
4 Ω per channel 950 W
2 Ω per channel 1250 W

Thanks, Arny. Good thing it's only money. And the resale on Bryston is good. Not that it matters to me, but it might to the kids...
