Integrated amp recommendations with A/B speaker

I'm looking for recommendations for an integrated amp in the $1-1.5K range, new or used that has A/B speaker outputs.

I am considering consolidating two systems into one with the idea of driving two sets of speakers in different rooms with one source and integrated amp.

The source will be a Linn Unidisk-SC, speakers are Linn Katans and Ninkas.

The usual suspects (Linn Majik, Rega Brio, Naim Nait) all have one set of speaker outputs so I'm looking for other ideas.

Thank you for the ideas, I will have a look. I actually have a Marantz PL 6004 which is nice. The next model up in the Marantz line also has a/b outputs.

After my original post I remembered that some Creeks have a/b outputs.

Any other ideas?
Thanks for all of the responses!

pgawan2b: Thanks for the caution, I plan to only use one or the other set of speakers, but not both at the same time.

I will have a look at the HK-990 and new Rotel.
I did consider using an external a/b switch but I've heard that they can degrade sound quality unless it's a very good one. Any recommendations for a switch that won't degrade SQ?

I've heard the Bryston switches are good but they are a little pricey.

Ctsooner: what is the a rotel model you are recommending?
