Well, they're all nice, but do you have a source component and a pair of speakers in mind? It's all kind of relative; they all are quality amps. I would say the Cary is most overview gestalt of the three, the Cayin is the most cuddly muscially, and the Primaluna is most detailed. I would try and have a listen to a couple of speaker sets with each, if you can manage it, and a couple of sources as well. Definitely mix and match if you are just starting out in a dealer listening room - if you buy a couple of things from a dealer, they will not mind the rearranging, or shouldn't. All three work fairly well with 87-91dB speakers, so you shouldn't have too much of a problem matching.
