Did you ever end up making the change?

Not yet. I missed on a good deal on a MCA-325 because I wasn’t sure if it was worth the upgrade. On the lookout for another one... also I want to get an amp that can reduce the brightness on my CM 10s, it’s not too much but on some music it’s a tad bit bright. I might like it less. May be a Parasound Halo 21/31.
A2/ A5 are not on my budget. The reason I was interested in MCA amp is because I thought they would pair well with MRX-720 that I have. I’ll look for a Parasound then. Also, right now it’s 70%-80% HT since I don’t usually get a chance to listen to 2 ch. without any disturbances in my living room - kids and family.
I’d go with Parasound if I were you too. I had the MCA 225 with the 702s2 and didn’t like it. The Parasound A21 was much better in my opinion. Tighter deeper bass and more musical. I found the Anthem too boomy / uncontrolled in the bass. I could live with it for HT probably but not 2 channel.
Where you having any poping sounds when the Anthem powers up & powers down with your 702 s2?
been reading few reports regarding this specially with sensitive speakers.
Was this issue apparent in your setup?
