    I'm after a 2 channel amp like the Arcam P80 and it must have auto signal sensing as it will be for the rear channels and I don't want it on all the time, only when surround is in use.

    Any alternatives?

    I'm pretty positive the Roksan Kandy 2 channel power amp is the same. Worth a look?

    Hi,
    Harman Kardon Signature series stereo amps also had auto standby,
    They're not made anymore, so only available 2nd hand, but are Nice amps:).

    I've still got a few of them, although I don't use the standby feature anymore:rolleyes:.

    Paul.

    Ta, I'll check them out. It's for rear channels so not mission critical.
