    The amp is THX Ultra 2 certified, meaning it is for use on movies as well.

    More than likely this modeli s considered an AV receiver.

    The 2250V2 is a power amplifier not an av receiver.

    The THX standard will not dictate whether an amp is rated for music vs theater usage. Parasound has been making excellent 2 channel gear since the 80's, and this line is their lower tier one for the more budget minded. That said, it has impressive specs and would be fine for music. Your speakers, if they aren't rated for 250 watts, would be something to be careful with if you like ear bleeding levels. But if you are like most, 90 decibels is getting pretty loud, and depending on how far you sit from the speakers(and their sensitivity rating) would likely be under 50 watts.

    I have the predecessor to this amp, which is nearly identical. It sounds great on every set of speakers I have hooked it up to, and has enough power to drive just about anything you may throw at it. Purchased mine used for about $400 and could not be happier. I did have a speaker selector switch go bad, but Parasound sent me one free with a phone call. Talked to the head honcho (Richard Schram) as well...he answered the phone in tech support.

    Richard will answer your emails most of the time, as well. Great company. Wish I had discovered them sooner.

    I am using this amp now for music only, mostly vinyl playback, with the 2100 parasound preamp, with the kef R300s I love it, i see It is on sale for $999 now, a great buy, class A/B huge transformer, I will be purchasing another to monoblock them at 750 wpc. to run a large pair of epi towers eventually. no money is wasted on meters or looks. just performance.
