I’m trying to decide on what integrated amp to buy for my Wharfedale EVO 4.2 (+sub, so sub out is preferred. Most likely it’s going to be BK P12-300SB-PR).\n\nThis is the room (~26 sq. meters = ~280 sq. foot). Note – stairway to 2nd floor is open.\n\nUse case: music\/TV\/movies. Electronic (bassy and rhythmic) music is the biggest priority, refinement and detail is a not that important. Music will often be played at above average to high loudness.\n\nSources: TV and laptop (Bluetooth for phone connection is welcome, but not necessary)\n\nBudget: £400-£1000 (don’t want to neither overpay, nor cheap out)\n\nThis is my first audio system, therefore I’ve been researching reviews of both my particular speakers and also various amplifiers to come up with some options.\n\nThe EVO 4.2 reviews do contradict each other to some extent with their amplifier recommendations (which probably comes down to everyone preferring different sound in general), but hopefully you can recommend me something that suits the aforementioned needs.\n\nHere are some options that I’ve gathered:\n\nMarantz PM6007 (£400)\n\nIOTAVX SA3 (£400)\n\nYamaha A-S501 (£500)\n\nAudiolab 6000A (£650)\n\nCambridge Audio CXA61 (£750)\n\nMarantz PM7000N (£850)\n\nMusical Fidelity M2si + DAC (£700 + ?)\n\nCambridge Audio CXA81 (£1000)\n\nRega Elex-R (£1050)\n\nThank you in advance for you answers!
