Should I sell/trade for an A21 and buy an A51? Just get an A51 and have an extra channel? Or probably the most economical and easiest just buy an A21 and get a decent 100-200w 2ch (maybe 2x2ch) amp for surrounds? The last option makes the most sense for the most reasons but if you guys have any input on my first two options mentioned let me have it. And if I go with 3rd I will probably stick with paradigms so what of their smaller non halo amps would you recommend for most bamg for buck? I have also thought about outlaw's 5ch amp that sells for $600 or $700. I forgot. Thinking about down the road if I ever do upgrade to the newer standards though object based formats still don't interest me nor have I been impressed still. Waiting for it to mature. And I'm also thinking when the onkyo 3009 kicks the bucket or I see a good AVR or preferably a used TOTL pre pro that is too good to pass up I'll be covered. Anyways, thoughts on amp situation? A21 first and just wait for a good deal on another halo A21 or get a non halo sound good for surrounds?
Check out my ad in the classifieds section. I would like to trade my older A51 for a newer A31, straight across.
