what features do you look for in a home amp?

Recommended Posts

I have a Marantz. I look for as low a THD% as possible, good quality DACs (and sometimes dedicated per-channel DACs), upconversion from analog inputs to HDMI out, and a decent output power at 4Ω and higher. Having the automatic 'Audyssey' setup doesn't hurt either, but it doesn't always come out perfectly.

I use a 1970's era Kenwood KR-6600 home stereo amplifier. No HDMI nothing fancy like that but it does do 500 watts a channel. And has a killer sound to it. I don't like newer amps I like my old bulky square powerhouses with no protect or cut off in them. As bad as it sounds, I rather blow the speaker and buy upgrades for it than have an amp that dials back power because it has all the protect circuits in it.
