I am ordering some Totem Dreamcatchers speakers for a 100% music 2ch setup with a vintage Technics SL-B2 TT with a Grado Green cartridge. I have a couple of choices as far as the integrated amp is concerned from my dealer.
Rega Brio3 - really like it but I was told it might not be able to handle the low impedance loads of the Totems (4ohm)
Pioneer Elite A-35R - Same power ratings as the Rega but 1/3 the price.
Pioneer Elite A-A6-J - Brand new and dealer doesn't have them in but can order it.
HK3485 - Very high current integrated that I was told would match well with the Totems.
So which would you guys recommend for my system? I don't need any digital connections of any kind as I will probably be getting an sacd player later on but it will be fully analog. As far as TT goes as soon as I get some more funds I would like to upgrade to a Rega P3-24 or something similar.
