How about a McCormack HT-3, 3 channel amp, which you can have modded by SMcAudio up to the level that you are willing to pay for.

The Antique Sound Labs KMP Fox DT 60 watt Triode Mono's. Looks cool, and as Chandler Bing used to say, "Oh My God", for the sound. If you haven't heard good tubes you will think that 60 watts is underpowered. These 60 watts sound HUGH! Also they will sound so much better than your Integra. You really won't belive it. They retail for $2495. The real street price is probably closer to $2000.
Ric Schultz at EVS (www.tweakaudio.com) is working on that very thing right now...inexpensive, but great amps (mono blocks too). I'm not in the market for an amp, but if I were I'd definitely consider giving him a call. I highly doubt you'll find anything better for less anywhere. They will use the digital switching technology so they can power anything and run cool, and his goal is to have them compete with multi-thousand dollar amps, sound-wise. My experience with his products (his DAC 2, modded transport and digital cable) has shown me that his sound quality to value ratio can't be beat. He believes in keeping the signal path simple, using great parts, and has an amazing ear (or two). There is no doubt in my mind that his design will be excellent.
