I have the DQ20i's speakers, and absolutely love them. I had tried various amps with my system (Krell, Ayre, Cary) to name a few, and ended up with the Legend Audio Design triode mono amps. They also have an integrated amp, but it may be over your budget ($3,000). Krell may be great with some systems, but on mine it sounded bright and thin. Dalquist speakers are very detailed, so you have to be careful what you match them with. I would definitely go with tube amps. I like the McIntosh amps, but never tried them with my speakers. I'm sure they would sound great however. Rogue might be a good choice. I've listened to the amps and pre-amps and they sound very good, especially for the price. Hope this helps.
