OPINIONS: solid state amps under $2000

I am an orthodox tube guy for life, no doubt, so I don't really know that much about SS gear. For various reasons I am now interested in a solid state amp (or integrated) for a second system. Any opinions for under 2 grand (used on a-gon)?
Yes. FWIW, IMHO, I recently purchased a YBA Integre DT, with phono stage for my bedroom system (Toshiba sd9200, AR TT with shure v15 cartridge, AR dac 3, McIntosh mr78 tuner, and Martin Logan sl 3's). I leave it on all the time, and it runs cool. Sound is articulate, refined, and detailed, as well as very easy to listen to and enjoy(music thru the night,etc.) Look at the YBA stuff, you will be glad you did. I am. Happy listening.
You can satisfy both your cravings by getting a Butler TDB-2250: MOSFET-based, tube hybrid. There is one on Agon for $2200/obo - I bet you can get it for $1995, check it out:

I think odyssey or belles might fit what you are looking for.
Symphonic Line RG-1 or 2nd the Belles/Power Modules.
you could look at some of the older Classe gear such as the DR-9,10 and 8 series. They are well built and the sonics are excellent with Classe service being excellent to. You will have money left over for any other upgrade, or just more for software.
Blue Circle CS. You can get it new well under your budget. Don't let the low price make you think it's not worthy.
Perhaps, telling us about your "second system" might allow us to offer you appropriate advice.

I use both of the above.
Not much advertising, does not play the magazine advertise/review/headgame. Victor Sima (owner and designer) was the founder of Simaudio -great guy to talk to, accessable, and will answer all questions if you call him.

Smooth, extended, lightning fast, nice sound stage and natural balance. I believe if these amps were advertised, and were saturated to the public, they would easily double their new price.
Yes Unsound, that's a good idea. The second system is for my workaspace. Unlike my main system where I spin 95% vinyl, this will be a digital only affair. I will be using a Meridian 507 CDP and a pair of Reference 3A De capo's. Preamp will of course depend on whether I get an integrated or not, if not I might need a tube in there. The idea was to leave it on all the time, so my preamp tube might have to take a back seat. I want to solve the amp issue first, and entertain the integrated issue a bit.

Thanks for all your help and advice guys.
