The A31 is not bad at all for heat load when running normal volumes - this was a major concern for me. The A23 has only a couple watts class A bias so even less. The A21 generates more heat than the A31 due to higher class A bias. Agree on class D for movies.

IMHO, you don't need amps in a room that size anyway. I think for the most part, theater owners don't have heat problems which cause them to opt for class D. If the biggest issue one has is heat, then other priorities such as SQ may have to take a back seat.

Hello guys, that do you think to have model 2125 ( not V.2) for klipsch RF-82II's. Now I'm using DenonX4000 for all 5 speakers I have. Looking for some extra amp to be on the end 9.2 set up. How is this amp sounds for movies?
Or any other recommendation for different amp?

Klipsch RF-82II's , RC-62II , RS-52II's

Any of the new classic amps would do just fine with this setup. The Klipsch are very efficient so you dont need much power to get them singing. Does this answer your question?

Has anyone tried to run 2 A21 amps in mono? Thoughts? I have a second one coming later this week.

I searched and didn't see any posts with this question - sorry if already answered. I was looking at Parasound's web site and noticed that all the amps in the "New Classic" line are now listed in the "Discontinued Products" page like this:

"NC Model 275 (2004-2014) "
"NC Model 2125 (2004-2014)"
"NC Model 2250 (2004-2014)"

But they are still on the "New Products" page as well - are they getting ready to discontinue this line?

2-Ch (HT L/R): Oppo BDP-105 BD, Adcom GFP-750 pre, Bryston 10B Sub Xover, Bryston 4BSST2, Paradigm Signature S4 v.2, (2) SVS SB12-NSD subs, AQ & Cardas XLR
Home Theater: Bryston 4BSST2 amp / Paradigm CC-590 (C), Outlaw 7700 amp / (4) Def Tech UIW-RSSII (LS/RS/LB/RB), Samsung 46” 3D LCD

The NC models listed as discontinued are all Version 1. NC Version 2 models are listed under new models.

PM me for a complete description of the changes made for models with the V.2 designation.

What do you do what 2 Halo amps are just not enough? Break in another. Ok, going to try bi-amp, mono-blocking etc. See what happens before adding my other speakers to it.

Just a matter of writing a shipping list, checking it twice, and then filling a 20' or 40' container. And a passport with at least two years left on it.

Nice! I can picture that replacing the NAD M3 in my home office system. I'll have to keep an eye on this.

I tried running 2 A21 amps in mono, significant improvement in clarity and bass control. I don't want to see JC1's in the future..... .


Next up bi-wire.

I believe JC1's are right now at $9500 a pair. I think I'm getting to the WAF zone and don't want to push it to far.

Well the Marantz SR709 only has 9 amps and I need 11 since I am doing 7.2.4 ATMOS
