Power amp for PMC DB1?

Hi there,

I need to buy a good power amp for my new PMC DB1 monitors, will be bweteen them and my Mytek stereo 96 so I need something transparent for mixing, any ideas? are those hifi amps from Pioneer or Onkyo a good choice? I guess no but.. I have no clue about amps, I know Hypex but not sure about the wattage that I need, I think about 200 or a bit less per channel.
Whay I like from those hifi ones is that some of them have outputs for 2 sets of speakers, you can switch between them and one single vol control, pretty useful in general but not sure about sound quality and fidelity tho.

If its budget a Hafler p3000 are pretty good, if ye want an AWESOME amp thats comparable to high end pieces like Brystons for thousands, check out a Parasound Halo A23. I use that with my PMC's and actually one of their speaker designers recommended me it, an amazing amp for around £800

Hey mate, you can buy Parasound very next to you, I give you the links:

Both are great and reputated shops.
