Hi bugbitten!

Would you be able to explain the difference between M200 and 2000? Btw which ones do you own? I heard M200 switches between Class AB to Class G performance at certain volume? What does this exactly mean in terms of sound quality? Is this the case with 2200?
Thanx a lot guys

The new version (M2200) has balanced inputs.

This review is a write-up about the NHT A-1 version of the same amp.

Check it out. More later.

I have the M200, the earlier version. I have not noticed a change in sound quality at any levels on my M80s, so I assume the M200s are doing their jobs.

The M2200 is the same A/B/G.

It is easy to get a listen because the Outlaws have the same 30 day policy.

All that and above said, I switched to a Monster 3 channel just recently. The M200s are on the surrounds. The Monster was a easy buy at $900 so I made a switch. Can I tell much difference? Not really! Maybe a little more responsive, but I would never hesitate to recommend the M2200s.

John, all good suggestions so far. I have the smaller Odyssey Khartago amp and have been very pleased with it. Klaus at Odyssey is a great guy and if you call him up he will try to steer you in the right direction and try to fit your needs.

What kind of set-up are you looking for, 2 channel, HT?

It will be 2 channel to begin with, but I'd like to have an option/flexibility to upgrade to 5.1 or 7.1 some time down the road, so maybe some preamp that would have both stereo and HT mode would be nice.

John I don't know if posting this link is considered heresy but over at AVS they have been discussing the Crown xls 402 and 602's for a couple of years. Plenty of power and a real bargain - something you might want to explore. To boil down the 110 pages would be impossible but basically a couple guys tried the pro audio Crowns and loved the results.

$250.00 will get 200 something watts and $350 will get you over 300 watts per channel. Not much to lose at those prices. I haven't heard them but your question just sparked the idea. Hope that helps.

For starters I would look at the Outlaw's 990 and 970 and read their forums. They get good reviews for 2 channel as well as HT.
