Temporary Down Sizing - Integrated Amp Recommendations
If it's only temporary why spend that much $$$$$.  I use PS Audio Sprout for a small system in my office.  Nice little amp, only $700.  Probably easier to sell off when done with it.  
Manufacturers past their heyday
can you imagine how long the list is for manufacturers that should never have gone into the audio business???!!!!! 
I nominate this company as building best speakers!
I love great equipment, but not for $30K.  I wouldn't be round to enjoy them if my wife found out about them.   I'll stick with my Snell Type C.

Integrated or Receiver?
if you listen to fm broadcast then you should be happy with just about any yamaha reciever.  i bought one a few years ago for my nephew as a graduation present and he is thrilled with it.if not, then i'd take a look at the Cambridge Audio Topaz ...
