Not knowing your room size and musical taste it is a little hard to make a recommendation, but since you use my favorite word "musical" you may want to look into (and see if they meet your power requirements) a used Audio Refinement integrated amp or perhaps the Joldida 302B (also used and hopefully supplied with upgraded output tubes). I have a Musical Fidelity X-A1 that I can also recommend, but it is now discontinued and would have to be found used as well. The X-A1 is not quite as soft as the other two amps but does offer more detail while maintaining musicality. None of these amps have bass "slam" with average efficiency speakers, but they do everthing else right for the price.
