Stereo amplifier??

Hi all - i've decided to upgrade my system and have bought myself a pair of Audio Pro E.3 monitors, a Velodyne spl 800 sub and the Cambridge Audio DacMagic plus - i'm now looking at buying a stereo amplifier to complete my setup. Want to spend around $1000 and am currently looking at the Arcam FMJ A18, Marantz PM7004 among others - wondering if you guys have any suggestions or opinions with regards to what would be a better buy?
Thanks

The Cambrifge Audio 650A amplifier is listed at $779 in Recommended Components in the October issue.

Audio Advisor is currently selling it for $499 becuse a 651 model is coming out soon.

I think you will find comparably discounted prices in your area that are attractive.

$1000 Amplifiers

I guess you need an integrated. I have a NAD C275 power amp on the way from a local dealer to hold me over. It's just over your price range. Unfortunately the integrated version is a bit more, though I did see some at a local dealer a year or so ago for less than your budget, but not lately.
