Best $700 integrated for Merlins, Rotel 1072 CD?

Looking for advice on an integrated amp to pair with Merlin TSM-MM speakers and Rotel 1072 CD Player. Have
$700 to spend. How about Musical Fidelity X-150? Other suggestions? Many thanks!
MF is a good choice. A3, A300 (maybe a little more $$$), A220 (no remote), A2 (no remote, lower power) all $700 +/- or less. Good phono sections, too, if you are inclined toward vinyl!
I would also take a look at the Jungson integrated amps. I heard a JA-88D straight out of the box at a dealer, and it sounded superb. Also, the build quality was exemplary.
