The progression of my basement system can be found here:

At the end of the last thread I mentioned I left a spot for the next upgrade. It took a couple months to save up but I just picked up the next big "upgrade". I put upgrade in quotations because I have Klipsch speakers that we all know are easy to drive being powered by an already powerful receiver with the front and surround back channels bridged to the front left and right speakers. I currently have no audible distortion coming through any speaker, even when playing very loud. But I plan to upgrade all the speakers fairly soon to something less efficient.

Here is the next big purchase: Parasound New Classic 5250 v.2

And where it is going:

Continuous RMS Power Output
20 Hz - 20 kHz, Five Channels Driven
250 watts x 5, 8 Ω
385 watts x 5, 4 Ω
Current Capacity
45 amps peak per channel
Frequency Response
20 Hz - 50 kHz, +0/-3 dB, 1 watt
Dynamic Headroom
1.6 dB
Total Harmonic Distortion
0.025% at full rated output
0.02% at average listening levels
IM Distortion
0.05 %
Transient IM Distortion
Not measurable
S/N Ratio
114 dB at rated output, IHF A-weighted
106 dB at rated output, unweighted
93 dB at 2.828 V output, IHF A-weighted
84 dB at 2.828 V output, unweighted
Input Impedance
33 k Ω
Input Sensitivity
1 V in for 28.28 V out, THX reference level
1.6 V for full rated output, adjustable from 500mV to 5
Inter-Channel Crosstalk
85 dB, 1 kHz
73 dB, 10 kHz
67 dB, 20 kHz
Damping Factor
Over 150 at 20 Hz
Auto Turn On - DC
9 - 12V, 15 mA
Auto Turn On - Audio
1 mV sensitivity
15 minute turn off delay
AC Power Requirement
110 - 120 V / 220 -240 V, 50 - 60 Hz
1 watt standby; 2500 watts full output
17-1/4" Wide
19" Deep with gain control knobs
7-5/8" High with feet, 7" panel only
437 x 482 x 193mm, 176mm panel only
Net Weight
69 lbs., 31.4 kg

I will give my thoughts on this purchase after it is installed. I will be very honest. My reason for purchase was so I can move to a processor and different speakers in the future. Will I notice any sonic differences on my current system? I will let you know. I promise I won't say it sounds better only to justify my purchase.

Stay tuned!
