So, Saturn, after all that amp/reciever testing can you tell me what your quality sound/price ratio winner is...Just in case i have to replace my old Yamaha 1020 (circa 1978)some time soon. I have a rotel cd 951. Assume it will be driving M22's w/sub w/no HT intentions at the moment anyway. thanks

if only Sound/price ratio (for solid state and strictly my personal opinion)
For stereo only:
money willing
RA-1060 or RA-02 or RA-01
http://www.rotel.com/products/integrated-amplifiers.htm
Rotel makes excellent pre-amp sections for the price.
Your 951 is an excellent CD player 20 bit Burr Brown PCM-69 DACs HDCD will compliment any of the above.
The M22 is very efficient and 60w is lots of power to drive.

or a used C370/C350/C320BEE Stereo Integrated Amplifier

I've compared the pre-amp section of some of those Rotel above to a Bryston pre-amp/integrated and both do not add to the sound. Both are clear, clean and neutral and do not add to the signal. The only difference is that the Bryston pre-amp is 3 times more. I was able to to determine that those preamps above does not add to the signal because my CD player has a built in volume control where I can plug the CD player right into the power amp. When I put the pre-amps between the CD player and amp I personally did not notice a difference.

That being, does anyone know if any of those All-in-one players or SACD combo players have built in volume control so that I can just plug that unit to a couple of power amps? Some people have mentioned that the shortest path to a speakers is best.

Saturn,

I don't know of any modern disc-players that have an integrated volume contol for anything other than a headphone jack.

Thanks, Saturn. So if Rotel and NAD for 2 channel, what's your pick based on the same criteria for multi-channel.

Now your asking a personal choice..
Don't beat me if you don't like the sound but here was my pick for stereo listening.
The watts maybe low in comparison to HT but the DETAIL!
And its loud enough in most rooms... not Sushi's cathedral ceilings

a tie
1. Arcam A65 Plus - as good as Brystons pre/power but cheap
1. Exposure 2010 - my dad has...phenominal

3. Rotel RA-02
4. Rotel 1060

This actually mentions to pair it up with Axioms.

In the end go listen to it maybe even bring in you speakers. A good retailer should not mind you setting up your speakers with the products you are interested with.

Saturn
