As part of the endless a saga of looking for a very able amp for the main 2 channels, I had an interesting day yesterday. My Tag 100x5r will now drive the rear channels (and possibly the centre as well), it is good for 150w but the KEF ref 4 need a bit of umpff in a 30 foot room. RS suggested replacing my Tag with a £100 receiver  Mind you I also heard them describe PS to some one, boy did that make me angry, cost them a DVD player sale. Another dealer suggested a Rotel 5 channel 120w bi amping the L and R, interesting concept but a rather retrograde step. They had never heard either. Sevenoaks suggested the Musical Fidelity stuff. The AV 250W mono block was a decent enough amp but I listened to the 250w (8 ohm) CR 308 CR (choke regulated). Well this baby rocks, and rocks BIG time. Effortless power but with some real class and I mean REAL CLASS. It can also take dual inputs which is VERY important to me. This is a GREAT power amp and one of the best I have ever heard. At its price it seems a bargain but we never talk about it here? Why not? It has a stunning spec, as good as any power amp I have seen, and this seems VERY conservative in ratings and it has vanishingly low distortion. It was just total effortless control. Has anyone else heard it? It was up there or better than the Brystons / Tags and competing with the best of the best.
