looking for advice on first power amp purchase
As the title reads looking for some advice on an amp.
As for a little background I have owned a few AVR's in the past and currently have Pioneer Elite SC05 which is running a pair of Def tech BP7001's in my garage. I finally decided to bring my BPX's and CLR 3000 out of storage and put them in my living room. I know sounds back wards but a couple cross country moves and keeping the house out of state and renting where I'm currently living the floor plan doesn't work with such big components, plus I spend alot of time in the garage working on stuff. I almost pulled the trigger on either a Marantz NR1609 or Marantz Sr5013 the other day but a friend of mine sold me an Emotiva UMC 200, honestly it will work perfect for my application.
So what I am looking for is advice on a nice 2 or 4 channel amp I can use now & in the future for a dedicated two channel which will eventually be some form of B&W's All the def tech equipment and sc05 will go back to a theater room when we move back into a house next year. I would most likely be purchasing a used unit as I'd like to keep my budget under 1K
