Paraound Halo vs. Rotel vs. Adcom...

... vs. whatever else you suggest.

I'm looking for a multi-channel, SS amp for both Home Theater and 2-channel audio. I've been considering a 5-channel multi to drive surrounds, center and zone 2 and a larger 2-channel amp for the mains.

Been considering the Parasound Halo A21/A52 combo, or a similar Rotel combo. I have been told to check out Odyssey and Adcom as well, but don't have any experience with them.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

"you could think of this amplifier as a direct- coupled 100 watt per channel Class A amplifier with 400 watts per channel of headroom. Or you could think of it as a 1,000 watt per channel amplifier that is throttled back to a mere 500 watts for safety. Or you could simply think of it as the most powerful home theatre amplifier on the planet—because it’s all of these things."

"This amplifier has a clarity and freedom from coloration that rivals the excellent Levinson 33H mono amps in my opinion, and the CAL is far more powerful."
