I have heard the Aronov LS960I integrated amp drive your VR-2's with excellent results. For $1150 to $1350, here on Audiogon, an unusually solid build quality, elegant retro styling, and musical, accurate, sound quality. Has an ability to elicit the best possible bass, even though tubed.
There is no built-in remote control, and the dual mono volume controls are not always intuitive for an audiophile's other household members. Aside from those points, easy to recommend.
Thanks for the responses - that (a source) may be what I need. I was noticing that some CDs have some jagged high end and others sound compressed and flat. I think the VR2s aren't particularly warm and fuzzy, I think I want to hear more depth, definition, and nuance (like who doesn't?). I thought the amp might give me more of those qualities - you're suggesting an upgraded source would be a better approach?
