K, i thought i was all set on getting the new BA1600M, great power for a great price, but now i'm confused. I dropped by a local shop today, and after i listened to all their sales pitch babble (they wanted $1500 for the new Diamond Audio amp ) something caught my ear. They offered to sell the new 2003 Orion 1200D for $500. is this a good price?

basicly i need opinons of people who have used both (dei or RE/BA), is the Orion worth the extra $$$ or can i find it cheaper online somewhere? I need 1000+W @2Ohms and effiency(sp) is a factor as well.
What would you guys choose?
