    5 (or 6) CH Amps, Suggestions, Opinions Please....

    Ok, theses are the ones I know of so far:
    Focal FP 5.500
    Audison 5.1k
    Memphis MCH600
    Memphis MCH1300
    Zapco DC Ref DC650.6
    Elemental Designs NINe.5
    McIntosh MCC406M
    JL Audio A6450
    JL Audio 500/5
    USAmps MD.41 - (appears to be 5 CH, web site is pretty hard to read!)
    USAmps MD.42 - (appears to be 5 CH, web site is pretty hard to read!)

    Looking for suggestions on good sounding amps, has anyone listened to theses amps, which ones sounded better than which? This is for a 5 speaker system, each speaker would get an amp channel, so it would be triamped....

    If your 5-th channel is not the sub, your list should be shorter. Some of these amps are hybrid (like JL 500/5) with dedicated class-D sub channel, they may not be even capable of playing full-range on this channel.

    i have a orion cs500.5 ( fist amp i ever had ) and it is true power, plus more. I just wish that the 5th channel could be set to high instead of full or sub.
