I've been using a Crown Audio power amp to drive my KEF LS50 speakers, but 2 of these amps have died in the last 6 months. I'm thinking I should look for something other than pro audio gear. I'd like to find something in the 200-250wpc range. Just a 2-channel, stereo power amp. No more D class. A/B seems to be the way to go. I checked Emotiva, but wasn't very unimpressed. Monoprice's Monolith 2-channel 200wpc stereo amp is a beast, but $1000??? WTF? Any ideas from the [H] crowd? Thanks!
