I am looking for a 5-channel amp with at least 125wpc. I was pretty set on getting an emotiva upa-7 but realized with its weight and dimensions that it won't work for my component rack. So I was hoping some people could throw out some recommendations on amps that are in the range of 40lbs and less than 17in. deep. I am looking at mostly used equipment. My budget is $1000. So far I have found:


rotel 1075

sunfire grand cinema 200

adcom 7605

outlaw monoblocks

anthem pva 5 (less than 125wpc though)


So any thoughts on these or ideas on other amps?


Thanks.

I've owned Rotel, Adcom and Anthem. They all were good and performed well. For the 125w/ch amp I would pick the Rotel from this list.

I picked up a brand new Sunfire TGA 5200 on audiogon for slightly under $1000. So far, so good. I like the amp even though it does have a colored sound compared to the old Aragon I was using.


On the plus side it is very cool running and I think it meets your space requirements. Worth checking out, IMHO.

I was going to suggest the Emotiva XPA-5 (200 watts per channel for $800 and rave reviews), but that probably goes beyond your size and weight limits.
