Put me down for the Outlaw as well, $200 off it's regular price and I love the looks of it.

Hi Dannyg,

Besides the already recommended H/K 3480, the Sherwood Newcastle RX-770 stereo unit here is an excellent performer at a bargain price with a robust amplifier that will drive the 4-ohm Axiom M80s with ease.

http://www.axiomaudio.com/sherwood_rx770.html

If you have vinyl, it also has a built-in phono preamp (many others do not).

Any of the Denon AV receivers are excellent if you want to allow for future expansion to a surround system. The Outlaw stereo unit is gorgeous looking with some excellent features but it was fairly expensive.

NAD gear is nicely designed but tends to be overpriced and sometimes lacking in features.

Regards,

Alan

I have a Nad 352 integrated amp with my 22's and have used it with the 60's. I think it sounds great

“NAD gear is nicely designed but tends to be overpriced and sometimes lacking in features.”

Considering the cost of the Axiom A-1400- 8 / - 2 @ $4389.00 and $2987.00 respectively, isn’t the above statement analogous to the “pot calling the kettle black”.

If these zingers are going to reduce the cost of the Axiom amps, I'm all for them, but something tells me we're only going to get a reasoned rebuttal.

Unfortunately “reasoned” is not synonymous with the words” agreeable” or “reasonable”. ;\)

I have a Harmon Kardon 3490 powering my M22's and HSU STF-2 sub. I know you are currently not interested in a sub, but should you decide to add one, the 3490 has two subwoofer outputs, digital input (w/built in DAC)for CD player and an great remote. For the price ($269 thru Amazon) it's hard to beat. I am very pleased with this receiver paired with my M22's

I am curious why knowone has recommended any of last years or better still, any of this years Yamaha receivers??? For the dollar I do not see how you can get more? From everyones opinion of them thus far they all have adequate power supply and at some point if this 2 channel stereo wants to be come 5, 6 or even seven there is room to grow!!!

It has been proven that Denon amps sound better than Yamaha amps. Just a fact.


Ask FredK and JohnK, they love to explain the inherent sound characteristics of some amps that make them sound better than others. \:\/
