    3 channel amp

    Does anyone make (or do you know a good source) for 3 channel amps?
    I am moving from 2 channel to surround sound and do not want to sell my amp (Carver TFM35X). If I can find a 3 channel amp and quality pre-amp I should be set.

    You didn't give us much information such as price, wpc, etc. Bob Carver now works for Sunfire at www.sunfire.com. Unfortunately, I did not see any 3 channel amps, just 5 and 7. I did see a Krell KAV-3250 3 channel amp at:

    http://www.krellonline.com/html/m_KAV_p_KAV3250.html

    Lots of power if this price range is in your budget.

    A less expensive solution would be to get a mid-fi amplifer from Harman Kardon. Here is a link to there 8 channel amp which can be bridged into 4 100 wpc channels.

    or you can get their 4 channel amp at:

    http://www.harmankardon.com/product_...202000&sType=C

    I personally like the warm rich sound the Harman amps provide and IMO much less expensive.
