Buda, Depends on what tonal qualities are important to you and how much you are willing to invest. Also, do you have any specif requirements of a pre-amp, i.e. phono stage, remote, HT pass thru, etc. Care to comment?

Thanks for the help. I would like to use the amp with a NAD542 CD player, no phono, HT? - it would be nice to expand later. My Thiels are running on a Cayin T30 with suprisingly good results. The sound quality is spacial, warm, and easy to listen to for extended periods (not bright at all). My system is very pleasing 90% of the time but sometimes I would like a little more volume and a friend of mine runs his 3.5s with a Rotel 200w amp and a SS pre-amp with good results. I don't want to leave tube gear but I can't afford 100 watts of tube gear. Have you had any success with the hybrid integrated equipment? Is it worth looking into?
