Something to be careful of if you're comparing power specifications is the number of channels driven. I believe the 325W figure for the Anthem is 1/2 channels driven - I think it falls to 180W or something like that with all channels driven (you'd need to check their product literature to be sure).

I will be pushing Paradigm Signature S8, C5, ADP's with this amp. I have heard the Anthem P5 on the Signatures and whoa.. I would hate to have less power because its was just so incredibly effortless.

Who cares about if it has THX Ultra2 ratings? When you can have a maximum continuous rating of 1000 watts into 8 ohms and 2000 watts into 4 ohms and 4000 watts into 2 ohms!
Just get a set of 7, Moon Audio "Rock" monoblocs......
"This fully balanced differential mono-block amplifier produces a high-current output signal to a maximum continuous rating of 1000 watts into 8 ohms and 2000 watts into 4 ohms, easily capable of driving virtually any loudspeaker. Using 32 bipolar output devices in conjunction with internal electronic component matching to exceptionally low tolerances, the ROCK pushes the boundaries of solid-state amplifier design. With a very strong emphasis on form and finish, this amplifier includes a customized 2 inch thick solid granite base, weighing in at over 120 lbs., and an anodized top cover."
Now of course, there is the very small matter of them costing "only" just $29,995 a pair!!!!
