Rotel RB-980BX
Excellent amp with ample of power. Bass is crisp and deep. What separates this is its >1000 damping factor -- giving it the ability to precisely control starts and stops of low frequency signals. The result is crisp, tight bass. Mids and highs are excellent as well.

>great amp. can be found for around 500 used.

Just picked up a 1998 model year for $200 cash and it's in great shape...just thought I'd let you know.  Check audiogon.com...they're going for around $300 on there.

Rotel RB-980BX
This is one of only 2-3 power amps that occupy the 'bottom of the audiophile' nitch. Also looked at Acurus and Adcom. In my area, Acurus dealers hard to find, local Adcom dealer a real jerk. Running them with B&W Matrix 804. I like clean, neutral sound, very sensitive to too bright reproduction. From what I heard, all 3 amps were 'good enough'. Liked build quality of Acurus better, but Rotel's is OK. Other dealers didn't let me A-B their amps with other brands (!); when I tried the Rotel vs others (like high-end Marantz and Sony), I felt Rotel most neutral. Others who like more bass boom or bright trebble might like others, but for overall sound quality and neutral sound, these are hard to beat at their price. Running them with Rotel 971 CD amd 980 (981?) preamp and Tara Prime and Master cables.
