    I need some opinions from the experienced people.

    I'm selling all of my stuff, H/U, speakers and amps, everything but my sub. My question is on the new amp selection. I don't have all the money in the world and I've been doing research for the longest time now. I've come up between two amps, the SoundStream Picasso PIC2.240 and the US Audio USX2100. I'll be buying two of them, one for the front stage and one for the sub. I'm leaning towards the US Amps because they seem to be getting better reviews and their specs are better as well. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here's a couple links to the amps I was looking at.

    I would go with the US amps. Bar none, the best amps for the money. You could find better, but not for those prices.

    If it doesn't go in, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

    I don't want the soundstream because they're more dirty than the US Acoustics. Us Acoustics also advertises it's power output at 12.9 volts. That and the price is better for me with the US Acoustics, I can get them for $122 over at www.thezeb.com

    Well for one the US Acoustics advertises it to be cleaner than the SS Picaso lines by 2% THD, which is a lot. Second, the new Picasso line, which I was looking at, shares the same production lines as the PA stuff, that just worries me. Then the amperage draw, the US Acoustics do the job with much less draw.
