Any owners/users of either of the two listed integrated amps have any thoughts on their sound/musicality? Each generates what appears to be relatively high current power at 200+ watts/ch. Krell reviews very well in Stereophile and elsewhere. Musical Fidelity A5 appears to be an interesting candidate as well. I am still choosing speakers, but leaning towards Joseph Audio RM22si Mk.2's (see similar post in loudspeaker forum), which are spec'd at 8 ohm nominal (6 ohm min) w/ sensitivity of ~88db. I have a smallish room of approximately 12'6 x 11'6 x 9'. Jazz, female vocals, small ensemble/chamber, acoustical pop/rock is most common music types. Would like amp to have accurate and tightly controlled bass and don't want or need thundering, boomy lows...Much more concerned about soundstage, imaging, transparency in mids and highs to accentuate vocals, stringed inst's, piano, flute...
Any thoughts on the Krell and MF integrated amps, or suggestions for other integrated amps in the +/-$2500 range to consider would be most greatly appreciated!
