    Your rack gets cheaper too!
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    An integrated amp is the makings for a very clean looking system.

    It was for the Vincent SV500 but as a SV236MK owner, the SV237 awesome.

    If you could up your budget just a little, this piece would be of interest.

    http://www.doge.audio/products/tube-integrated-amps/doge-prima-donna/ (note the spec sheet weight is shy, should say 59 lbs.)

    Doge Audio was started by the former Design Engineer of Jolida, he was responsible for the Jolida JD-100 CDP and many other Jolida products.

    The Doge 5 comes in below budget

    Also looking at this one...

    My PS Audio GCPH has volume control on it, so I could hook it directly into this...
