I currently have the Signature version but at one time had the original. I tried integrateds from Acurus (not too bad a match),Classe (treble too bright), Krell (horrible match, way too harsh), and Nad (decent for entry level). The best synergy I've found was with the Sim Audio Moon I-5. Not an integrated for people who listen close to 3 digit db but a hightly musical and involving amp. It was the only integrated I've tried that made music from the Totems sound like it was coming from flesh and blood vs. caps and transistors. I've also heard their less expensive Celeste I-5080 which did a good job with the Model Ones.
