Multi-Channel Amps
Category Winner – Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature

Anthem PVA 7

For a little more money than the MCA 5, you get more power, a sleeker look and the ability to power all of the new formats with this seven-channel amp from Anthem.

Krell TAS

With the kind of bass you’d expect from a Krell amp and looks that you’d expect from Aston Martin, the Krell HTS is an easy addition to the Best Of Awards in 2002.

Proceed AMP5
While it is far from inexpensive, the AMP 5 is a great solution for home theater and multi-channel music, giving those working into a high-end system a taste of the Mark Levinson sound. It can also be used to round out a 7.1 system by those who have reference stereo amps in their systems.

Proceed HPA2 - HPA 3
$3,250 and $4,750
Coupled together, the HPA2 and HPA 3 are far more powerful than a Proceed AMP 5 at over 250 watts per channel. While this system uses two chasses to house five channels of amplification, they are very well sonically matched to provide lots of power specifically for home theater and 5.1 audio applications.

Sunfire Cinema Grand
At its price it is hard to argue the value of the Sunfire Cinema Grand. Powered by Bob Carver’s patented Tracking Downconverter technology, the Cinema Grand can rock harder than practically every 5 channel amp anywhere near its price category while retaining a smooth timbre.

Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature MK II

Bob Carver makes a great amp even better with more power and rack-mountability. A/V installers and enthusiasts with Middle Atlantic racks applaud now . . .
