Bottom Line:   
The Parasound 2205-A After owning it over 12 years now; still amazes me in its sound reproduction. Its got a really really nice sound to it. The highs,mids,and lows are all great and very revealing to the source. I've tried many many other amps out there and the 20005 is just a GREAT AMP especially for the money which they seem to be holding at around $1000.00 to $1250.00. That massive 2KV transformer has the balls for most all the speakers out there and the amp runs in simi CLASS A. If you can find one then buy it!!!!! Its still one of the Best amps,Best Built, and Best SOUNDING amps out there period...... You Can't Go Wrong Here. Stephen

Bottom Line:   
I could not be happier with this amp. Solid build, heavy, huge power supply, great warm sound, everything I wanted in a power amp. I had a B&K and this amp is much smoother and provides deeper and tighter bass.

All of my speakers are nominally 4 ohm and this amp does not mind a bit and any level. For the price you cannot beat it. I thought about a Sherbourn but I decided to stick to the one large power supply over the 5 mono amps in one chassis

Bottom Line:   
I bought it used at a good price. Previously I used Acurus A200x5. I think Acurus produced smoother mid and upper. while Parasound produced tighter and deeper bass. If you listen to music more and have powered subwoofer, Acurus is a better choice ( for a used 5 channels amplifier under $1,000)
This unit goes hot just 20 mins after I turned on. It is quite heavy( anyway,I didn't move it that often)
