From what I can tell this is the "pro audio amp" thread of sorts. Been looking to upgrade from my HT receiver and with my need (err, want) for power and budget, I think a pro amp may be the ticket.
Assuming a quality unit, any downsides to using a pro audio amp over a consumer power amp other than looks, fan noise and lack of snobbery? (none of those I care about).
Any brands/lines to look for or avoid?
I'm sure some of these have been answered in this thread but it's taking me a while to parse through 165 pages...
