Two low cost int amps I've seen and heard are the Glow audio tubed amp and the Jolida Fx-10. Both look distinctive and sound pretty good -- espec if using high sensitivity speakers.

I saw this ad on A-goN yesterday. $345 for the Arcam Alpha 10 is a great deal. I owned one a few years ago and thought it was excellent.
No relationship with the seller. Just passing on what I thought was a great deal.
Gosh I didn't realize the Arcam Alpha 10 can be had for that kind of price these days. I have owned this integrated, and although I didn't have much high impressions on this unit at this price I would say go for it. Another alternative is a Rega Brio3. Equally stunning integrated but doesn't come with a remote.
If you can stretch your budget by $99, I don't think that you can beat the Peachtree Decco. Good amp - should work well w/ 94db speakers. Great DAC. I have one in my office at work and think that it sounds great, especially for $499. You might be able to find a used one here for $400 or so.
