Been years since I have posted but I thought I would take some suggestions... I have recently been updating my Kitchen sound system. For years have been running a Marantz 2225 and just upgraded the speakers to Klipsch RP600m. I use a Technics SL-1300, Marantz CD changer and Echo Link for streaming. It sounds great together and also run JBL Control 5 on my deck with this set up. I just bought a Mcintosh C504 preamp and have a Linn DK2 amp to try with it. I do not think it will sound "warm" like my marantz so I was wondering if there are any "warm" sounding amps out there for under say $800 new? I was looking at Emotiva as they have a pretty good reputation but was wondering if there are any other 2 or 4 channel amps out there that would be "warm" to add to the Mcintosh. The Klipsch are really bright! Thanks!
