Cyrus CD 6SE2, SBT->rDAC->Cyrus PreXPd->2 x Cyrus X-Powers->PMC Fb1i
Funny all the text is lost, So I’ve just acquired a pair of Focal Chorus 706S to build my second bedroom system (4*5m), initially listened to them on my main system and they are quite good, nice mid and high, very well balanced and they look good, slightly light on bass but ok for their size and for the price i got them they are unbeatable.
Am looking for an integrated second hand amp to run them with good results, any experience or thoughts/experience highly appreciated.
I would suggest a second hand Musical Fidelity M3i if it's within your budget:)
Electrocompaniet EMC 1UP / Musical Fidelity AMS 35i / Focal Electra 1028be / MIT AVt MA speaker cable-Matrix 12 xlr / Chord powerchord / GIK acoustics/ Sennheiser Momentum
Focals are generally good with smooth/warm amplification. Look in the range of Arcam A19, Creek Evo, mid range Marantzes, Roksan kandy.
Amp: Leema Pulse; Source: Naim CD5i-2, Denon 260MKII, Pro-ject XP I; Speakers: PMC TB2i

Indeed PP otherwise its run for cover time ,unless one likes that kind of thing. I will add Primare i30 to that list ,may be one out there at a good price.
Nice recommendations guys, the M3i is above my budget for this system, I'll be looking at some cheaper options like the ones recommended by PP, but beside that, anybody listened to them or have some experience with these speakers?
I would look at Arcam A10 (as suggested), Rega Brio-R, Sansui SAP-201V and possibly Peachtree Deco 65

Anybody listened to them or have some experience with these speakers?
No - have heard the 714S, 714V and 807V. Very good speakers and have a 'common' presentation, nicely detailed and clean sounding.
Nice recommendations guys, the M3i is above my budget for this system...
There is this one: http://www.kronosav.com/musical-fidelity-m3i-integrated-amplifier-ex-demo-prices-reviews.html
Am sure the M3i will sound fantastic, but above budget, will look into the likes of Arcams, Marantz, I also have the possibility to audition Brio-R which really amazes me every time I listen to it.
A nice 2nd hand/ex demo Creek Evo 2 will fit the bill very nicely. Good ones on Ebay have been going for between £350-£400 lately.

The M3i was for a used one. The Creek 50A is pretty good., I thought it was better than the Arcam A19, if you want more power and bass the RK K2 is worth a look.
