Aronov LS960i integrated tube amp, selling used on Audiogon for about $1600, has brought out the best bass capabilities, by far, in a number of my speakers: Clements RT-7, Platinum Audio Solo, Platinum Audio Reference 1, Spendor LE 3/1, Duntech PCL 5, and even Spendor LS3/5A mini-monitors, since you mentioned sense of bass inadequacy.
The remaining musical spectrum is very fine, and suits your Cary mid-range especially well.
May have to type in Aronov Audio on Google.com to bring up their minimalist website.
The other key to raising the bass quality in my systems has been to use the very top model power cord from Mapleshade, for the amp, connected directly into the AC wall outlet.
Not having built-in tuner may allow for superior sound, and justify the inconvenience.
That still leaves room in the budget for finest, affordable wiring from firstname.lastname@example.org, and your $2500 is all accounted for. Two pairs of interconnects at $120 per pair, and $180 for eight foot pair of speaker cables. Prices not a misprint. Moneyback home trial to prove "you got bass," and everything else your system can deliver.
By the way, congratulations on fine source components for both CD, and vinyl.
