Need a great bang for the dollar integrated amp from $300-$1000. New/used. I've heard of the following: Krell, Rotel, Arcam, Adcam, Marantz, MacIntosh, Pioneer, etc. from you folks. Tubes vs solid state. Don't want surround sound. 2 channel ok. Just want to listen to music with a nice CD player and turn table. 75 wpc. I have B&W CDM 1NT speakers that need this great amp. Don't want a lot of words boyz, just get to the facts. Also, where i can purchase said amp.
The wulf.

Onkyo A9555 85 watts FTC rating. Class D design. Nice internal MM phono stage. Great sound especially after my recent cable change. Stereophile and Absolute Sound can say it better than me. Available B&H Photo Video or JR Audio. Price can be found for $500.

Used: Big time bang for your buck with quality phono stage and 100 watts is an Adcom GFA-545 or GFA-545II amp and a GFP-565 preamp. Quality stuff. Combined cost around $500 on eBay or Audiogon.

New: NAD C326BEE integrated amp for $499 with free shipping at and a Pro-Ject Phono Box SE II for $329 at
