Default New Amp

I have a Denon 4308 and would like a little more authoritative and clean power for my home theater setup (want to keep the Denon as Pre/Pro for now due to features I like). My local dealer carries Parasound which I like and works with me on price. The speakers I am running are a Klipsch RF-63 system. I would like to know if a Halo A52 would be a good choice or should I go for the higher wattage of the A51? Also I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the model 5250, which from what I can tell seems to put out pretty much the same wattage as the A51 but with less current output and fewer features. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

For me, too much power is almost enough, but you will need to decide for yourself. It sounds like you have a good relationship with your local dealer, ask him to let you demo them at home in your system and see for yourself which one works best. That is the ultimate test and will undoubtedly give you all the data you need to make your decision.

Cool Re: New Amp

Give Electrocompaniet Nemo 600, or Classé CA 400M a try you will see what power can do.
