I have proac tablettes too, and run a Cayin 88 and 100 into them. Great sound, great value. You should be able to get a 100 for about $2K used. Cayin and Primaluna are made by the same company.

fwiw, my high end dealer auditions proac with (50w) pass lab ss integrated and it sounds great, although i think it'll be above your budget. in any event, if you're using the computer as a source, you're gonna want to use an external dac, so you may consider something like a peachtree nova or hk990, which have quality inboard dacs and give you a lot of flexibility for future upgrades.
Many thanks for the tips. I'd been looking at the Peachtree, though a few reviews seemed underwhelmed. Nice to have the headphone option, as i live in an apartment, though it's not the most pressing concern. Had looked at a Pass Aleph here on audiogon at a good price and some seem to feel that SS is more precise and responsive. Will look into Rogue. Cayin over Primluna? Really? All quite puzzling! While I'm all over the map...any nice cable suggestions ~200 bucks or less? Upscale sells Ah! cables but I don't see anyone here selling them. maybe they're lame?
