Upgrading Anthem MCA 50 to Statement A5?

I am thinking of upgrading my MCA 50 power amp to the Statement A5 (the P5 is a bit out of my comfort price range). I currently have the Anthem AVM 20 and McCormack UDP-1

Any thoughts or advice on the upgrade?



Unless you're looking to do the D1/D2 switch, you're better off keeping your MCA 50. There are minimal changes from the MCA 50 to the A5 (mostly cosmetics).

The P5 would be a heck of an upgrade (just did that myself). Be forwarned the pricing on the Statement line is rumored to have gone up for 2006. The P5 for $6,000 and the A5 for 3,000.

Best of luck on this,
