i'm wanting to buy a stereo amp and these ones listed caught my eye. the trouble is reviews all go on about how fantastic they are so it's confusing.
i want one that i can plug in a subwoofer to.
Yamaha R-S300 Stereo Receiver $449. also YAMAHA AS300B $400. don't know the difference between these two. not sure what the B means? reviews tend to favour the AS rather than RS models.
YAMAHA R-S500. these refurbished units are $500. i've considered this one as i read a lot of user reviews that couldn't say enough great things about it. some were saying its the best around at this level, giant killer, blah, blah.
Rotel RA-10 Integrated Stereo Amplifier $449.
Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10 Integrated Amplifier $399.
Onkyo Integrated Stereo Amplifier A-9050 $550. this was best amp for $500 on a stereo site i looked at.
has line-out, that for a subwoofer isn't it?
Marantz PM-5005 $544.
Just on looks alone i like the Rotel and Cambridge Audio.
The Yamahas accept a subwoofer, don't know about the others.
is there a better stereo amp in the $500 range you know of?
