Thanks very much for letting me know about the Emotiva, ATI and the Parasound. One or the other seems like a good solution. I certainly would like to pay only $500, but $2,000 seems to be the way to go.
To be perfectly frank, so many of the “mid range” audio stores closed near me in the last decade, I am just not up with this level of amps. I can’t walk into a store and hear them or even see them. I am using a 15 year Proceed HPA-3, which has seen better days.
Thanks for helping me out. Have any of you heard these amps?
