I'm finally upgrading my system. Took the first [major] step when I got a good deal on some 5B's and now I'm looking for an amp that will help me get the best - or near the best - out of them without breaking my budget. I'd like to spend around $1,000. One suggestion I've received is the Rotel RA-1520.
I have a turntable and will be getting a new CD player. I also do listen to digitized music - some things I've ripped as AIFF's but also some MP3's I've purchased.
I don't tend to listen to music at wall-shaking volumes (although I have been known to "turn it up" from time to time).
