Hi rmihai,
Do oldies count?

If so, Marantz 300DC, Nak Stassis PA-5 or PA-7 (type II's as well). There are others.

Hi rmihai,
Too many to list. Luxman comes to mind, some newer Marantz stuff and I am positive others would love to dive in with their opinion.

There's always a used Bryston 3B. Because of the original 20 yr. factory warranty, there's usually quite a bit of time left even on used ones.

Hi Doorman,
True, but original xB's sound like , you need to get into SST's before they actually sound good. I would have mentioned them otherwise. SST's will exceed the budget I would think.

Original production Adcom 555. They'll drive anything it seems.

Agreed, no 3B I've heard has screamed "buy-me"! OTOH, I use a 2wpc. SET. Not exactly everybody's cup of tea either!
Best, Don

Hi SY,
For sure, many Adcom products would fit well. Any more we can't remember? Heck, even the newer Carver's were "okay". Silly power.
