Starting Over...Need help finding the perfect integrated to replace everything


OK so I am selling everything (Decware Torii, Parasound A2, Tannoy Speakers,) everything except my VPI. I am going to get some more sensitive speakers and I am looking for a class Solid State class A A/B integrated with a nice headphone section (getting rid of that headphone amp etc as well). Preferably with a built in Dac as well (do all integrateds come with DACs now?) and a nice phono section of course.  I have not given any of the class D stuff a listen but maybe that is the direction I must look in? 
If anyone has downsized and are happy with it what did you do?

First, what's your budget? Are you wanting to purchase new or will you consider used? Not all contenders have dacs. What sensitivity speakers are you contemplating? There are many choices as far as power output goes. 
Sorry for the lack of details. I definitely want used. My budget for an integrated is capped at 4300.00. I think the Tannoys are somewhere around 91 or 92db but it takes some balls to make them do what they are supposed to. I think they are closer to 87 or 88db. New speakers will be smaller maybe open baffle maybe the size of the devore orangantans My 25w Decware Torii does not complement these Tannoys. Id like an old Levinson or Marantz or Pass if possible. I like the Parasound so I am definately considering there integrated. I really think John Curl’s stuff is comparable to Pass and Levinson especially considering price points.
I’ll throw a out a few suggestions that I’ve owned which meet your criteria:

-Micromega M100 (great DAC, Room Correction)
-Parasound HALO (great flexibility)
-Denon PMA 1600ne (good DAC, great Phono)
-Gold Note IS-1000 (great DAC, great Phono)

I’m currently using the Denon, and am very impressed how good it sounds. It’s very well-rounded, and the biggest surprise is how good the phono section performs.


Pass Labs INT 60 or 250 although neither one offers an onboard DAC or Phono Stage but they sound great.
