Help Needed: Power Amp Brand Recommendations under US$ 1000 budget

Hi,

 

Im planning to upgrade my current set-up from integrated amp to seaprates-pre and power amp. My current integrated amp is a Rotel and has pre-amp functions, so I will just have to buy a Power amp. Please allow me to seek suggestions for Power amps that offer the best value at a US$1000 budget. Im thinking between the ff brands: Marantz MM 7025, Emotiva XP200, Musical Fidelity M1PWR, but any other recommendations are very much welcome. I listen to vocals but also listen to Rock and Roll. My speakers are Tannoy Revolution DC6TSE. Appreciate any advice from the group. Thanks in advance.

Power amp help

Were you not looking for a tube amp in your other thread?

 

Loads of second hand expensive kit! Motto: Never pay full price for anything, there is always room to haggle!

RE: Help Needed: Power Amp Brand Recommendations

Does your Rotel have power amp in as well as pre outs?

If it does you might well find upgrading the pre amp section to be more beneficial, unless you currently have power output issues.

Some more detail might help.
