I am looking for a little advice on amps for the 2.1 system. I am tired of the fans on the Crown XLS402. Also, I am curious if I am sacrificing sound quality with the current amp.
I am looking to spend less then $2K. I have narrowed it down to the Emotiva XPA-2 and the Parasound A21. I really want to get something quality and that will keep me satisfied for a while. I figure that it would make sense to get a quality amp that can grow with me as I get better and better speakers down the line.
I like the pricing on the XPA-2 but the Parasound A21 looks very appealing due to the fact that it looks like a very high quality piece that was designed extremely well. I just don't know if it's worth the price increase over the XPA2.
Can someone chime in who has experience with both amps? Is there anything in my price range that I should consider as well?
