Looks like Pioneer will be my choice, the price is very good also.I can not listen the Denon, because there is not dealer around me with Denon amps

The A30 is a very good amp - much better than its price would suggest.  I won't be rushing to part with mine, even if it is currently not in use.  It is a subtle and refined amp and seems to have a real sense of ease in the way it deals with dynamic swings.

Rega RP3/Elys2/TT PSU - Onkyo DX-7355 - Rotel RA-01 -  Dynaudio DM2/6 - Atlas Equator 2.0 Cables - Merlin Tarantula Mk6 - Beyer Dynamic DT-770PRO - Mission stands

I intend to replace my Arcam Alpha 7 R amplifier.

My system: Arcam CD 72 player, Acoustic Energy Neo 1 speakers.

Can you recomennd a musical, fluid sounding budget amplifier with no harsh treble?

-Denon PMA 720AE

-Pioneer A 30 (the cheapest in my country)

-Nad 326BEE: do not like because of inprecise  volume regulation with remonte (I was listening to it, the sound was very good, very musical with strong bass)

-Cambridge Audio Azur 351A

-Nad 316BEE

Sorry, the budget Rega amp and the Arcam A 19   amplifiers are over my budget  :cry:

I have no possibility to listen all these amps, so I need your help

  I sold the Onkyo A 9010

  I sold the Onkyo A 9010 european version (after 3 weeks) because has very unidimensional soundstage (compared with Arcam) and a little bright for me.

If it helps, I've seen the

If it helps, I've seen the Yamaha A-S701 in shops for £399. Not sure on the price where you live though sorry. Plenty of functionality with all the controls you could wish for and looking through some reviews seems to be quite good.

Hi you mentioned changing

Hi you mentioned changing speakers several times. Have you decided on a pair yet ? How are the Q acoustics 3020's compared to the Quad 11 classics?
