Vivek,

At 10K i would recommend the following amps :

1. Pioneer 6100F / Kenwood KAC-8452 (Grey)
2. Sony XM-SD46X (with B&W)

If you want to go for bill and warranty way then Sony is the amp to go for as of now..

Just talked to the guy from TMC

Alpine
240 - 11400

Blau 470 - 9500

Obviosly these are over the phone rates and open for negotiation.

If you can stretch the budget definitely the choice has to be Alpine 340 though the model has been replaced by the new one and you can contact PFM for the new model. Second option would be 240.

I personally prefer stuff with bill and warranty in which case it is Alpine 240.

I suppose it is worth stretching my budget a bit if the 340 is worth it.
