There are very few surround amplifiers in the market, they are generally 5 channel amplifiers so you need seperate subwoofer amplifier. The one amplifier solutions are even more rare.

The surround amplifers available in India with B&W are as follows :

Audison LRx 6 SR (Surround) : Rs 51000 - it does 55W X 5 (L-C-R & Surrounds) + 150/180W (Subwoofer 4/2 ohms). Single amp solution for car surround / theatre.
AUDISON - Music expression

Alpine MRA-F350/355 : Rs 33590 -
it does 50W X 5 (in L-C-R & Surrounds) you need to add mono amplifier for subwoofer along with it (eg. Alpine MRP-M450 Rs. 13490)

Apart from this the only other solution is to buy a 5/6 channel amp for F-R-Sub along with small 2 channel (bridged) for center.

Crutchfield has this amp for sale (for quite sometime; it hardly sells) after heavy discount at $180-200. It has only one optical input and has no other line ins though. And since an old stock M350 (for .1) comes at $50-100, total cost comes to <$300, the pain to get them from US is worth it IMO. But as Zak says, you cannot sleep with warranty under your pillow.

Max, the query was for a 5.1 amp, thats 6 channels, usually 5ch of equal power plus one larger channel for the sub. As JB (Autophile) posted, there arent many options for surround (5.1) amps.
