|Pass Labs Int 25 vs Int 60|
I have FINALLY settled on Dynaudio Confidence C4 Platinums, and the INT-25 drives them wonderfully in my 14x23' room.
|Pass XA25 or Pass XA 30.8|
The XA25 (I have 2, but using only one as stereo) drives my Dynaudio Confidence C4 Platinums REALLY nicely! Stereophile measured it's output at almost 180 watts. It's the most tubey, SET sounding SS amp I've heard, and I've heard MANY.

|Do I need room treatments? floor plan included|

Get my girlfriend to blow......ahh.....err......the leaves off the driveway......with the leaf-blower! Yeah.....that's what she blows while I'm listening!
|Egglestonworks Andra original versus Andra-II|
Is everything else exactly the same, or did something(s) change? Aren't the II's a little bit taller? 3 or 4"?
|You know you're an audiophile if--|
When you make a good money-saving deal on a non-audio item and justifiably think....."Hmmm.....I can buy a new amp, speakers, etc. with the $$$ I saved!"
the Yamaha's are excellent! Not all have the 2nd zone feature, but you should be able to get a RXV1700 or 1800 within your budget. Good Luck!

I second the Sony 350, but for Undertow, aren't the 350 and 550 exactly the same, except the 550 has 7.1 analog outputs for use with older receivers/processors that can't accept an HDMI input?Good Listening!
