• The Adcom GFA-7605 is a better amplifier than you will find in any receiver costing $1,000 and perhaps as much as $2,000 or more.
• The upgrade path of separate electronics is always a smart way to go, as you aren't trying to run an entire home theater from one big black box.
• The aesthetics of the Adcom GFA-7605 are better than I expected, considering its relatively low cost and high power output.
• For big rooms, 125 watts per channel might not be enough muscle to really make the paint fall off the ceiling, depending on the efficiency of your speakers. For more money, Adcom has other amps with more power.
Adcom is back and their GFA-7605 is a solid receiver alternative. Compare this affordable amp with those from Outlaw Audio, NAD, Anthem and other performance-based players in the market. Adcom has the sound, the look, the power and the pedigree to make it into your system and, with this amp, it may never leave.
