Im going bonkers, i want to drive pol 4 ohm lsi15 and center now im looking athttp://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....inema-200w---5
Whos ritas, do they do good work, this seem like a good deal?
I've been looking around for one as well. My needs are a little different than yours as I would really only want it to take strain off my avr since my lcr are 4ohm nominal loads. These are some of the ones I've found looking around in no particular order.
ATI 1506(actually a 6 channel amp that can bridge to 3 channel amp)
Just noticed that they all start with 'a'(kinda funny). There are others but I removed the ones that I know off hand are too large or expensive for your needs.
Also, since I'm gonna try to move my equipment to a closet I'm considering using two 2channel pro amps. Not sure if this is something you're interested in but I thought it was worth mentioning since it's impossible to beat them as far as watts/$ goes. Best of luck with your search.
Just out of curiosity, what speakers do you have that requires an external amp to drive?
Edit: Whoops. Guess I should read the whole thing before I hit reply. For your speakers, I wouldn't expect much(if any) benefit with a 200w amp over an avr, but if you just want to take some strain off your avr then I get it.
