Hola,

I'm looking for an integrated amplifier that does 2-channel well. I don't need 5+ channels but I would not mind it. I have gotten the impression that 2-channel receivers are preferred over 5 channel for 2-channel music. However, if there is a 5 channel receiver with stellar sound quality, I'm all ears!

I'm looking for a piece that has the kitchen sink:

phono stage
tuner
dac (usb and spdif)
bass management / variable sub out crossover
remote
tone control
125w+ per channel
pre-out

IF available, I'd also like room correction

Budget is $4000

Thoughts?

I don't know if TacT or Lyngdorf would do everything you want. They'll have the power though.

I don't know why/how I posted this under "speakers." If there is someone to give me a tip on how to get it moved to Amps, please advise.

and get the matching CD player. My price-range was lower for an amp, but if I were shopping this would be it. I have had the 990 CD player for about a year with no complaints.
