    Default WTD: Integrated amp

    I'm thinking of getting one next week in the £5-600 range but thought I'd see what's out there first. Open minded on topology and power (but I'm not after a low power valve amp) although I'd like to have remote control. I'd also prefer to spend less if I can but would equally up the budget a bit if it was worth the extra. I'm also fussy about condition but if something's a bargain I can always look the other way

    Default WTD: Integrated amp

    Just before the lockdown I auditioned and bought a Rega Brio and have found it to be superior to my previous Cambridge CXA60, it's purely analogue and it has a very good sounding MM phono stage onboard. If you don't need digital inputs I don't think there's anything better at the price (£599). It does have remote control too.

    Maybe the NAD D3020v2. Reviews say it carries with it the characteristics of the original and for connectivity it touches all the bases

    Thanks for suggestions so far, the amp I'm looking at was well reviewed at about £1.5k a few years ago so I'm looking for something in that ball park though. Sorry maybe I wasn't clear that's £5-600 s/h price.

    Btw, thatís below your original budget but for more money and power you could elect for the 3045

    Thanks, if a used one came up about half the new price I'd seriously think about it.

    Hi Lawrence, I bought a Yamaha RN-803D, it's a brilliant amp for the money and does everything ie FM and DAB, internet radio and music-cast multi room etc.

    I paid about £500 from Richersounds around 18 months ago, the only issue, if it is an issue, is that it can't be upgraded via a software upgrade to the newer Airplay thing.

    I'm not selling as it's a keeper.

    Cheers

    Tony
