I've used a NAD7100 receiver with 601's, nice match. Audio Refinement Complete Integrated was a marriage made in heaven, and can be had for about $550 used. Happy listening, Jeff

BTW I sell B&W's for a living and don't sell or have stock in Acurus.It's just the amp I tell my buddies who don't have the disease "audiophillia nervosa" like me and the rest of the dorks who haunt thse sites instead of doing something productive.Check out their web site off Kilpsch who bought Mondial who own Aragon/Acurus.
I use(d) a Parasound HCA1000A thx with a Parasound PLD-1500 pre and found the combination very enjoyable. I feel the HCA1000A (approx $350 used) is one of the best values to go with the B&W 600 series (601 and 602). I also had good results with the Rotel RB990bx but enjoy the Parasound more than the Rotel. Greater punch and midrange with Parasound BUT a slightly sweeter top-end with the Rotel- take your pick. Also, the Rotel is about $200 more than the Parasound (used price).
