Audiophile 2 channel Receiver?

Will be moving my 2 channel and HT from the living room
downstairs into a theater setting, hopefully by summers
end. I would like a simple system in the living room,
for example, my Silverline Audio sonatina II's driven by
a 2 channel receiver. $2000-2500 (used on A'gon) budget.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Haven't heard it myself but the Magnum Dynalab MD208 has received good reviews. Retail is around $3,000 so used should be within your price range.
Check out eBay auction number 3083849824

Listed in a McIntosh MAC-4300V Receiver. It was manufactured from 1988 to 1993.
Sold new for $3,000.

100 watts per channel. Possibly the finest 2 channel receiver McIntosh has ever made.
Was the last 2 channel one they made.
You *could* go with an integrated amplifier.
Krell makes one. I believe it's the KVR 300? I know the 300 part is right, but I'm not sure about the KVR. I've heard it once. It sounded decent and it wasn't very large. Might be perfect for you.
the magnum dynalab 208 is incredible.
Perhaps an Anthem TLP1 would fit your needs. It's a two channel pre with good remote, tuner, decent sound, and inexpensive. Most reviews indicate that it performs well ahead of it's cost. Pair this with an amp of your choice and you may find what you need for your living room.
The Krell is a KAV 300il,small silver unit.I heard it matched with a pair of B&W N703's.Simply outstanding to say the least.MSRP was $3250.Demo/used can be had for well under $2000.Hope this helps....
