I would feed the M's something a bit better than the S300i integrated. Try taking a look around at some of the older FPB class A series amps. the 200 watter version can be had for under $3000.

I would look at a Musical Fidelity Integrated amp. There is a new A1008 on Audiogon that also has a built in DAC and a separate power supply. (very cool) I am personally a fan of tube based gear, but after hearing this amp, I realize that there is solid state gear that sounds great and tube gear that doesn't. And vice versa. The A1008 has tremendous amounts of power (75 peak amperes) but sounds more delicate than Krell IMO. The A1008 utilizes a tube buffer stage, lists for $5k and is priced right from Upscale Audio. It would be a shame to have a product voiced as gloriously as the Cremonas and to match them with cold sounding equipment and or cabling.
