Best integrated amp up to $6000?


Prefer tubes. Like detailed, transparent sound, 3 D holographic soundstage. Mostly listen to jazz small ensembles and acoustic music(piano and Guitar).Thank you!

Maybe a used VAC Sigma 160i, or an older VAC Avatar.
There's a Viva Solista LT up right now for $3100. These don't come up for sale very often.
you may want to advise as to what speakers you are running and how efficient they are as their power needs may assist in narrowing down the available choices/recommendations...
Lfd ncse about $4k-ish
IMO (and it is a value judgementb admittedly) a used REGA OSIRIS = a real Goliath killer
Octave- made by a German company.
The best I have heard was the Hegel 300 at RMAF last fall for about $5500. It included a fine DAC. I was blown away by the speed and liquidity of the unit. Simply fabulous, well worth considering.
