Your most disappointing purchase or audition?
In the late 80's I was returning from a long overseas assignment and looking to re-enter the audio hobby. I visited a local dealer and heard a Krell 300 integrated with a Meridian CDP and Thiel CS1.5 (could have been 1.2's) speakers. I thought my ... 
the Soneeteer Alabaster or Sugden A21AL
I've owned the Sugden. It's a very sweet amp but with limited power. The Sonneteer Alabaster is a tripath amp. If it were me, I'd opt for the Sugden. Jim

Amplifier for Jordan JX92S Transmission Lines

Reliable Used int. amp for $1200? Plinius? Classe?
Naim is an answer for you. A Naim 5i or used Naim XS would fill the bill nicely. You need to listen to Naim at a dealer first, s the sound will be different from the CJ equipment. Jim
