I'm about ready to try another stereo power amp. The Meridian 557 looks very interesting and is priced about right (I'm looking 2nd hand hopefully no more than £800) but I'm struggling to find much information on it. Anyone have experience of the amp they care to share, in particular compared to others in its price range? I was looking at the Bryston 4B ST, hoping for a price drop after the launch of the SST, but I have yet to see one under £1k (which would be my absolute max) so now I'm considering the 3B ST or SST. There is a very favourable write up in Hi-fi News, saying that until pushed it's very close to the 14B SST. Again comparisons to other amps would be very useful. The warranty on the Bryston has a lot of appeal. I'm giving consideration to Buns' Korato KTA100 should he decide to split, although age (3 years old I think) and possible difficulty reselling should it not fit with my system are causing concern. Is there anything else I should be considering? P.S. My Parasound is still not working as I am still waiting for a replacement fuse, even if this does solve the problem it was always my intension to get something a bit special for the front two channels to improve stereo music reproduction.
