At the $1200 price point, and with speakers that require at least 100wpc, I believe Viridian has given you some good suggestions.
Music Rereference RM-9 Mk 1 or 2.
The Rogue 120 is an excellent recommendation. Terrific value.

Another possibility, although seen less frequently on Audiogon, is a pair of pre-owned Quicksilver M-80. They sell for around $1K

Good build quality, reliability, and customer service if needed.
Music Reference RM-9
Another suggestion: Dynaco mk iii monos by Will Vincent (autospec here on Audiogon). Lovely amps, authentically retro, and right at 1200 price point.
