Stereo Amplifier Used $200-$400

Recommended Posts

Just purchased the KEF Q100 in that awesome deal recently from Addicted to Audio. Also have a Paradigm Monitor 10 ref bookshelves.

Also, I purchased a Yamaha 303 receiver.


Need another amp under to drive Q100 (or interchange with Paradigms)

Budget $200-$400 for used stereo amplifier

have a DAC already, need no fancy features but 'a good sounding amp'.


Please suggest me an awesome amp for the price range (happy to go slightly above if theres a compelling offering)


Would prefer within Sydney as I dont have to wait to pick it up and can pick up on Friday or this Weekend (patience is not a virtue!)

      So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire.
      Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play:
      - music currently on a hard drive (internal and external);
      - tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast;
      - streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone.
      Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers.
      I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year.  The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs?
      Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles.
      Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.
