    ...I was thinking of upgrading to a Parasound 2250, but my biggest use is for home theater, video games, movies. Is it worth it to upgrade and will it make a noticable difference for my use of them?

    I did find a gfa 555 in Edmonton. Used for 490 Canadian. The guy couldn't tell me how old it is though

    I just found one of these for 450 locally. I don't know enough about how to use them with my RTIA9's and Sony Str Dn1080. Would this suit my needs?

    Yes, it would power your 9s MUCH better than the receiver alone. Not the most refined power however. I would look for something like a B&K reference 200.2 or a parasound HCA-1200 or 1500.

    However, the problem is that your receiver does not have preouts for the mains (only zone 2 and subs), so you cannot use ANY external amp with it. You will have to upgrade the receiver in order to add an amp...

    Could use one of these. It's not a solution I would choose, but it'll get the job done.
