I have the 100's with a Line 1 and an Anthem MCA-20 and a Musical Fidelity A3 CD. Bass is definitely very good for rock. Good cabling is a must as is a high current amp. I am not familiar with the Stratos amp. The Anthem amp might be the weak link in my own chain but on the whole I am very happy with the bass response. This with the speakers 5 feet from the back wall and about 2.5 - 3 feet from the side walls. I did have my PW220 sub hooked to the back of the Line 1's second pair of outs for a little while but the bass lost some clarity so I hooked it back up to my SSP's sub out jack and no longer use it for two channel. When you go auditioning the Paradigms insist on having a really good amp hooked up to show what they can do. Also, go for the real wood veneer - I wish I did. Good luck.
