MHDT Labs Orchid DAC review
There a guy in Tennessee can twist your orchid up to a few notches! I asked him improve my pagoda but he never work on pagoda before so I have to wait for another time ! 
Best integrated for my purposes - help me choose 1 of 3!

Mhdt balance pagoda ! Pure analog without breaking your bank for 2k new great speakers increase in value over time in the vintage market?
My fellow Asian folk will always more for well respected Jbl or Tannoy , altec Lansing driver , for that kind of moneys they spend I rather pay for recently made and still have moneys left for more records  
to my ears digital audio does not sound natural? something is wrong!
In order for digital music sound more natural you will need invest in good dac like nos tube dac ! Around 2k and you will be satisfied! 
Speakers that are a great value!
@ lubachl yep ! I have the same thought !  
Integrated Amp $1200 or less
Get a good dac first like nos dac then start from there if you want a life time enjoyment and can listen all days without fatigue! 
Speakers that are a great value!
Add Nola boxer to the listed ! I have compared to focal , fritz and the Nola not far behind excepted for it not handle too much power like Fitz or focal 1008
