Most of your system is quite nice.
There are a ton of amps out there that would match nicely with your pre and speakers.
You need to ask yourself a few questions:
1-do you listen loud?
2-are you a bass fanatic-very power hungry
3-do you want tubes or solid state?
4-do you like your music "warm" sounding or do you enjoy a ton of detail. Keep in mind that some amps will get tiring on your ears because of too much detail (my opinion).
If you look at today's posts alone, there are Brystons, B&K's, Conrad Johnson and many more in your range that may even blow away the borrowed PS Audio. If you want to splurge, the Pass Labs listed for $1800 is killer in my opinion.
Check out as many amps as you can, borrow what you can, then buy used on audiogon. Keep in mind that shipping can be quite costly. Also beware of 220volt vs 110v amps-I don't know which continent you are on???
Thanks for all the great advice. So much for staying in budget. I bought the PS Audio GCA 250 with level 2 and level 3 + mods that was listed here. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I also added all new Silver Dragon interconnects and speaker cables. The added dynamics on the low end from more clean power and the clarity of the highs from the new interconnects are amazing. While I don't think anyone who gets into audio ever truly finds "audio nirvana", I am pretty damn close now. I think I will chill out for a while, open a nice bottle of wine and just listen all day today. The leaves are piling up in the yard but a man has to have priorities...
Thanks again gon'ers!
