I really wanted a Parasound 1500a but I can not get my hands on one. I have a B&K Pro 10 pre amp and a Velodyne ULD 15S7 sub (which may not work with this set up but I am restoring it anyway because it is beautiful!).
I need an amp and IC cables... Any suggestions?

And when can I add a profile picture?

    You know, it's interesting I just spoke with Polk while ordering an ic cable and he agreed with you DaveHo. I have a Adcom 535 series 2. I'll try this first. I may get back to you on the 545. Thank you

    I have recently acquired a Musical Fidelity 3.2 integrated amp.

    It is a dual mono amp and is not a common ground amp. I have a Dreadnaught from the last group buy, and it solves the non common ground issue for the 2B's and some other SDA's.

    My 2B's have never sounded better. I have heard things in song tracks that I have never heard previously and vocals are so much clearer and refined. I use JRiver and a PS Audio Nuwave DSD DAC.

    I swear I called musical fidelity and inquired about the a3.2 being common ground and they said it was. I used it with some 2Bs for a while and nothing caught fire. Maybe I was lucky?
