seeking Musical Fidelity advice/opinion

im looking into the KW series , and ive heard good things, does anyone have some advice, comparibles and or opinions.... in that price range there are "options", and id like to hear about them. thanks
I think these are quite a bit less expensive:

1) Bryston BP26, Bryston 7B SST.

2) Parasound JC-2, Parasound JC-1.

Both also have balanced connections.
