You should check out Odyssey Audio on their website. Speak with Klaus- he hand assembles each amp, and the Khartago amp can be had for as little as $800. up to $1700. with tweaks Klaus puts in. The amp can be converted to mono also. I have an Khartago Extreme, and it is very good, especially for the money. 20 year (transferrable once) warranty, and built like a tank. 30 money back guarantee , so all you have to lose is time. An Absolute Sound recommendation.
The Pass XA-30.5 is an over achiever by even a conservative standard. Rated at 30 watts class A, it will put out over 200 watts into 8 ohms and 400 watts into 4 ohms.
But I recommend it because it sounds GREAT, will be reliable for years, looks nice and is reasonable on the used market for ~$3,250.
We have a pretty high end system (Meridian 800 front end, MIT Oracle cables, Wilson speakers) and the XA-30.5's performance was impressive.
Good luck & best regards, TJF.
