Hi, I am planning to buy my first integrated amplifier for music playing. My budget is max. $500. Currently I have a pair of Ascend Acoustics CBM-170, and a subwoofer, Hsu Research VTF-2 MK5. I am wondering if there is any recommendations for me? I came up with short list based on the reviews on youtube etc. I am still studying the specs, and leaning towards Denon or Emotiva. Thanks again for the suggestions.\n\nDenon PMA 600NE ($400), 45 Watts per channel\nEmotiva TA100 ($400), 50 Watts per channel.\nCambridge Audio AXA35 Integrated Amplifier ($350), 35 Watts per channel\nNAD C316BEE V2 ($450), 40 Watts\nOnkyo TX 8270 stereo receiver ($499), 100Watts per channel.
