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! :)

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.
yes noted earlier, a well made amp will last for years. purchasing used amp would be a good option (depending on amp condition, in relation to price, usage environment ..etc.)

wouldn't hurt to have a look on CAM ..and Audiogon, if you didn't mind shipping across the border; or for that matter driving down to Seattle for example. your options, selection will rise. There's a couple of tricks to ship across border re: customs, some go for it .. others don't. Or just search, make contact ..and drive to reasonably close offerings (no one has to know..ha!)

that being said, there's a Classe CAV-75 for sale on CAM in your coordinates. (produced, admin'ed out of Lachine, Que .. FWIW) i don't know if it's a good (or great) deal...but you can check blue book ..condition/shape obviously ..etc.. (you know)
