Best 5 Channel Amp for $2k?

Looking at the Anthem MCA50 and the Parasound Halo A52. Anyone compared these? Any others I should look at?

I'm primarily focused on 2 channel listening but want to be able to drive the rest of my system for HT as well. Rest of the system is Krell HTS7.1, Sonus Faber Grand Pianos, walls and solo and Sony DVD/SACD.

Thanks in advance.
A used KAV-500 for about $2000 will give you 5 chan of output for $400 each..and it should be well mated sound wise with your HTS7.1..
There is an open box Sherbourn 5/1500A listed for $1500. I have the same amp and IMO it is one of, if not the best available new under $2K. FYI, that model is Class A/B, but has been discontinued in favor of the 5/5210 model, which I believe is class G.
