Alfonzo, welcome. There's no need to post in multiple forums. The result may simply be to dilute any responses you may get and provide less useful info overall.

You don't explain why you're considering a separate pre-pro and amplifier rather than a quality receiver which in most cases will be more cost effective. The amount that you're considering spending on just amplification seems highly disproportionate to the amount spent on speakers, which are far more significant in the overall audio picture.

Especially if you're able to buy from Accessories4less(i.e., in the U.S.), I'd suggest that you consider one of the Denon, Marantz or Onkyo factory refurbished units which will give you similar performance at significantly lower cost. If you can do this, I'll make more specific suggestions.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
