McIntosh 255 vs Parasound Halo A51 vs Anthem MCA 525
Looking to replace my Yamaha MX-A5000 with one of the above 5 Channel Amplifiers. I currently have and will use the Yamaha CX-A5100 Processor. Obviously, the McIntosh is considerably more then the other two.
I currently have the following system in my home theater:
Paradigm Studio 100 V5 (Main Speakers)
Paradigm Studio CC-690 V5 (Center Channel)
Paradigm Studio 20 V5 (Surrounds Rear)
Paradigm SUB 12 (Subwoofer)
I have always felt I was buying the MX-A5000 for the convenience of fitting nicely with the system and also being able to power other zones. Ready to take a step up for sound quality in my main system and think I need more clean power to drive the Studio 100's. My room isn't great but it is what I have for now, so I know it won't sound as good as what it might in a better room...
Any advice is appreciated!
