Need some recommendations on 3-ch amp

I Would like to ad a 3ch amp to my system for my front 3 and would appreciate some recommendations. I am new to amps and don't know which brands are available to us Canadians. Most of my online pals keep recommending Emotiva but I'm uneasy about ordering something like that over the border just in case I run into warranty issues.

For those who would ask if there is something lacking currently that makes me feel I need more power, my answer is not really. I have basically had a good season and am in a position where I have some "me" cash and this is what I would like to do.

Pioneer VSX-32
Klipsch RF-82 L/R
Klipsch RC-62 C
Klipsch RS 42's Surround & Heights

Recommend away! :)

Tunksy31, Beautiful! That's what I was looking for. Thanks for the info on the manufacturers.
I'd like to stay in the $1000- $1500 range if possible.. I might have to go the used route.
I really appreciate everyone's participation in this topic. You've all given me a good head start.. Now comes the fun part of researching and comparing prices.:eek:

At the end of the day, unless I can find a good deal locally, I will probably seek the used market. I agree that is probably the best bang for my buck option.
I agree with you TK, I basically ruled them and other cross-border orders out from the get go. At this price range it's just not worth it.

TECHNOKID, Thank you for posting that list of Canadian manufacturers. I have been spending as much time as I can the last # of days and you have definitely made things speedier for me. Much appreciated.
Like one of our fellow members mentioned, we sure do take it hard up the you know what here in Canada. Makes it hard to over look cross-border shopping.
