I used to have an Anthem MCA30 that worked very well. You should be able to find one used for right around that number.

"Find yourself a used Parasound HCA-2003A. Or if you can up your budget a bit - an Aragon 8008X3. The older stuff is where it's at...."
And to add to that list, an Acurus A200x3. I currently have one in my main system and have owned and sold another of the 1st generation 200X3. Either are wonderful amps especially to anchor your front soundstage in your HT rig.
Dandycat, you seem unaware of some of the facts regarding Emotiva. The XMC-1 has been out for most of the summer. You can buy one right now. Also, not sure about your odd comment concerning me not liking any positive comment on Emotiva. I responded to an erroneous statement and corrected a couple of them. Facts matter, one can not make up things about a company just because they like it.
No Emotiva amp is made in the US. No product of theirs has ever been, save the brand new XMC-1. That is the simple truth.
