Marantz PM8004 that I have trounced the NAD 325BEE I used to own 
Dahlquist DQ10

What do you listen to when no one else can hear it
CocoRosie or Vincent Gallo 
Audio note ANK Kits EL84 Vs Audio Note Oto PP
I used to own an AN Soro se and wish I never sold it, awesome amp and most think the Oto is a bit better with more natural bass (though less power)a no brainer in my book 
What would you choose for about $1k, ZU DW, SVS Ultra bookshelf or Tekton Lore?
why limit yourself to these 3?I would look into Elac 
SS Integrated Amplifier that would sound good with the PSB Synchrony One B
