    I am looking to beef-up my ageing AVR100 with the addition of a power amp. The P85 and P90 look like the obvious choices. However, the price of these NEW puts me off. I am looking for secondhand P85/3 amps but they look in short supply - perhaps that's the sign of a good product :)

    What other choices of power amp are worth considering?

    Should I bite the bullet and invest in a new AV receiver?

    I would maybe look at getting a new AV receiver like the AVR250 or AVR300. Both would provide a very substantial improvement in performance over the AVR100. Do note however that if you plan on adding additional power amps to a new receiver in the future then be aware that the AVR250 does not have any pre-outs other than for the subwoofer channel.
