    I have a pair of passive Event 20/20's that I've been powering with a QSC RMX 850 for a while. My trouble is that the amplifier is just way too noisy. Can you guys suggest a good QUIET amplifier? I've been told to check out the Hafler amps, but it seems like they don't manufacture them anymore. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    You can usually find a few Hafler amps on ebay at any given time. Not many though. People love their Hafler gear.

    (Used) Bryston and Rotel would be two relatively budget-friendly favorites to look at also.

    I just sold my Hafler on Ebay (P3000) for $249!!! (Bargain!)

    Sorry - this doesn't help. I just thought I'd put it into perspective.

    Check out Audiogon.

    I picked up a balanced B&K 200 WPC amp (with +/- Current swings of 55 AMPs PER SIDE) for around $500! It sounds BEAUTIFUL. And after I installed the dedicated 30 Amp circuit for it, I can listen to it in its full glory without the breaker tripping!
