I'm looking for advice on buying an integrated amp in the $500 to $1500 price range that would be a good match for my system. I have Monitor Audio Silver 5i speakers, a Marantz CD5004 CD player and I just purchased a Bluesound Vault to store and play back digital music. I do not need a built in phono amp. I'm currently using my Marantz 7400 AVR for amplication, but I would like to move to a two channel system for music.
I do not intend to upgrade the speakers any time soon since I really like the way they sound. So I'm looking for an Amp that would get the most out of them.
I listen to a broad range of music including rock and jazz at low to moderate listening levels. I would prefer an amp with a warm sound. I have been considering the following amps but would greatly appreciate this forums expertise.
Nad 326BEE, Nad 356BEE, Marantz PM 8004, 8005, Rogue Audio Sphinx, Rega Brio-R.
thanks for you help with this.
