Thanks Barry. I'm hesitant to go Class D, which is why I've stayed away from manufacturers like Spectron, W4Sound and Bel Canto so far. But I've read mixed things about the MC205, so I'm struggling...

Would you consider buying used? You could get your Dad a sweet integrated amp/receiver and pair of speakers off Audiogon for under $500. Here are a few items I found doing a quick search:

I'll also recommend Plinius. And Accuphase. Their Class A amps are top notch. I have an A50 and I can't imagine ever upgrading from it.
