Need an integrated with sub output.


I'd prefer a tubed integrated, but would settle for a solid state. Price range from $500 to $1400, but more importantly, one with the best sound quality bang for the buck. Naturally I'm not looking for an extravagant audiophile piece, just something with a nice sound in the mids and highs with a power output from 50 to 100 watts. Would consider lower wattage if SQ was at stake.

Thanks,

What do you mean by "sub output" exactly?
You basically need a preamp output for the subwoofer.

If your subwoofer can also be run off the speaker terminals (such as all REL models); you can use any integrated amplifier. I actually prefer the speaker terminal method for 2 channel music listening, assuming the sub can connect that way.

There are quite a few good integrated amps with pre-outs..

Disclaimer...I am a dealer....The Blue Circle CS Integrated can be custom ordered with pre-outs.

Quite of few nice Creek models have pre-outs. I am sure we can come up with a big list here.
.
The best tube piece I've had in a while is the Rogue Cronus...at the price it does everything I need as a one piece solution. Can be upgraded form 55wpc to 90wpc...and it's worth it! Comes w/ sub out (fixed and variable), phono and headphone amp to boot. Very hard to beat.

Enjoy,

The term "sub out" to me implies a low pass filter, which most integrated amps do not provide.

As others have stated, assuming line-level connections, a preamp output is necessary to connect a subwoofer. However, I personally that is only *half* of what is necessary. So that you can insert a crossover (that has a high-pass filter and low-pass filter), you also need main amp in jacks.

All NAD, Bryston, some Creek, some Rega, some Arcam integrateds have both.
Outlaw Audio RR2150. Its a receiver with 100 watts per channel. Check the online manual thats on the site.
