Default Expert opinions needed! 4 channel amps!

I'm looking for a good, solid 4 channel amp for around $200-$250. I'm thinking about 70 watts per channel @4 ohms would be about right. One I like is the Soundstream Van Gogh 320.4.($199+shipping). Also looked at the Monitor 1 Mk4.70($175 + shipping). Anyone have experience with these or have other suggestions? Thanks, guys.

Take a look at this, its a real Soundstream Reference 604. 1/2 Ohm stable. I don't like that new offshore Soundstream stuff.

Bid on it, but not too much...insufficient info on condition, IMO.

Did you win? 200 bucks on a ref604 is a pretty good deal man.

Have you used these amps before? They look like they have good specs, but I'm not familiar with earthquake.

I like it alot. I am running infinity reference 6.5" components off the front 2 channels. The rear channels are waiting for a 10" sub in the future. Sound is crisp and clean.

See, I am unsure about Infinity, as far as amps goes. I don't ever see them listed as among the "best" amps, and I wonder why, since their specs seem ok. $200 for a 4 channel 113 watt RMS seems almost too good to be true. Anyone else have experience with Infinity amps?

I just got an Alpine 540 v12 from Hooked on TRonics for 338 dollars,can be used as 2,3,4,
channels,has crossovers adjustable,rated at
80 rms by 4 at 14 volts,tested slip in box says 89 watts rms at 13.8 volts.Sitting and staring at me so can not tell you how it sounds yet.Thats all into 4 ohms too. But there is nothing wrong with the infinity amps either I was looking into the 2 channel jobber,for 129 bucks.You can always get to 2amps too.
