I've just been trawling some old topics like BadAss's 'Channel Too Far' etc and re-read all the Rotel etc stuff. It occurs to me that very few of us if any! actually use HiFi power amps in our setups. In theory they are the ideal thing. As DD/DTS use stereo front and back and centre speakers are bi-wireable, surely they fit the profile perfectly. After all they have been optimised for stereo. So coupled with a good proc. an AV rig would really rock. For example, I use a Densen integrated for my HiFi. They make power amps that have been reviewed and well received. So why not employ amps like that to do the job? The same applies to other manufacturers across the board. Anyone use, let's say NAD, Roksan, Naim or whatever in their set up? I do ponder too deeply at times.
