Hi,

I'm looking to buy a new amplifier to use downstairs with my new
squeezebox. I have just bought myself a pair of Monitor Audio B2 shelf
speakers and some Atlas speaker cable, all that I need now is a good amp
to power it all.

I'm not to fussed about running anything else though the amp (though I
might add a CD player or DAB radio at some point).

I'm based in the UK if that makes any difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers Oliver

Guess it depends on what you want. I use an old Pioneer A400 amp, which
in its day was one of the best amps for the money. No tone controls or
flashy lights - just excellent sound quality. A bit big for my bedside
table tho!

Do you want to make use of the Digital output? Then you need an amp with
an inbuilt DAC.

Or do you just want something compact? Teac make a nice standalone amp.
