I have the 956 mk2. This is the final amp I will ever own -- I love it that much. It has plenty of muscle to drive most speakers. I have not heard the 036 personally; it most likely would drive the SF Guarneri just fine. However, I feel that the 956 would have better resale value should you ever decide to sell it. If you get lucky, you can get it used for < $8000.
