Default Your Favourite "Name Brand" Amps

What are your favourite off-the-shelfers?? When I think about it my top three aren't really all that auspicious... the Yamaha was like $4000 1979ish, making it the dearest I think.

The Naim Nait5. Because it held my attention longer than any other ots.

The (venerable) Yamaha CR-820 for its sheer sex-appeal. For being my dad's amp when I was a kid, and because I could never get enough of twiddling its knobs.

The Adcom GFA565 because its the epitome of black-cased nineties ferocity.



P.S. No posting amps from companies you used to own/work for!!
