Hi, I have the Triton Ones and love them. Unfortunately my vintage Hafler Transnova 9500 lost the right channel so it is time for an upgrade. I am looking for help as to which is the best amp to pair with the Tritons. I am looking at three different amps. This time I would like to use monoblocks. First I am looking at the Ati-6002 a dual mono design that has got great reviews, one reviewer said it lacks audio jewelry, but also said you would have to spend over 10 grand to get notably more amp. Next is the Parasound JC1 has excellent reviews, still in Stereophiles recommended components. The first 25 watts are in pure class A. My only fear is the unit has been around along time and maybe refreshed sometime soon? Next is the PS Audio BHK-300 it is a hybrid amp, got a good review from Stereophile but not stellar like the JC1. So I am hoping someone has experience with these amps, and can help me to make the right decision. Also if anybody has any other amps to recommend, I would be happy to look into other amps as well. I use my system for 50 percent 2 channel listening and the other 50 percent home theater. Thanks for the help, Audiophileman.

Hi Audiophileman, welcome here and great handle!!!
Bummer about the Hafler!
Wish I could help on the 3 amps you mention, I have not heard any of them.
I have hybrid amps with my TOnes and they sound great. They are the Vincent SP-T800 monoblocks, and I think that particular model is no longer available. They have been replaced by the SP-T700s. Mine are Class A for the first 20 W @ 8 ohms, so a little more than that. I would recommend the Vincents but if those are not available in your area, I am just mentioning for the sake of comparison. Hybrid amps similar to this may well sound as great as mine do, STRONG RECOMMENDATION!!!!!
Hope you find something you really like.
Happy hunting, God Bless,
Wayne

The JC1 is an excellent choice.

I also thought the JC1 would be good. But my dealer feels that they are thin sounding with the Tritons. Have you ever heard the JC1 with the Triton Ones? If so please give me your opinion. Thanks, Audiophileman.

Yes, sounded excellent. So did the less expensive A21.
