Default From a design standpoint, which amp would you pick?

I am looking at a Luxman m-117 and a Leach LSR&D 101. The leach has a little hum in one channel and will probably need more work than the luxman since it is older, but they are similar price. Which direction would you go?

Also a PS Audio 200C and Belles 250 are options. I am kinda leaning toward the PS Audio or luxman. I think the belles may be a little to warm from what I have heard.

Your OP asked about making a buying choice "from a design standpoint."
Are you just in need of buying advice for something that will sound best to you from whatever commercial brands are currently available?

This becomes a consumer advice question but with used gear, the one obvious suggestion DIYs can make is to be sure of the condition of what you are interested in. i.e. what some fool has already done inside to fix it for quick disposal. There's no guarantee that you get what you bargain for at, for example, auction sites.
