Nail hit squarely on head!



I believe you are correct. I almost thought of going with the 54x for my front channels, but it was way overkill for my studio monitors.

One of the reasons I upgraded is I wanted to go from 5 channels to 7 channels, something that Parasound didn't offer. I have had a number of amps that would have fit the bill, but didn't quite sound...

Jerry,

ASome argue there’s no science behind breaking in amps, but I have to admit that the more I listened to the ATI amps, the better they sounded over the month I had them in my system. Hard to...

No, but it will be soon. As Jerry said, I liked them enough to replace my Parasound amps, one of which was an A51.

I always measure contrast ratio with windows, not full field patterns. Not the end of the world either way. For color patterns, you're correct, doesn't really matter. More of a preference thing. I'll...
