A Marantz PM-KI Pearl integrated, smooth, detailed sound on a wide variety of music. Nicest amp I've owned.

Beomaster 8000 and 4400 receivers. What a nice, creamy sound!

Amber model 17 full functioning preamp (from the 80's)feeding a Roksan Caspian integrated (90's)for the 8" full range and a TEAC AS-100 integrated (70's)for a dipol sub and tweeters. (I can by pass the pre's on the integrated)
And if you include the TT (60'S) and the dac (00) I have a bit of every decade from the last 50 years.

But I'm not sure which category to tick....maybe all above.

Outlaw RR2150 Stereo Receiver. I'm definitely in the minority here.

I'm still using my trusty Technics SA-DX1040 bought in 2001. This has been and still is a great receiver. I use it for 5.1 home theater and in stereo mode for music. Both modes work great. This thing can take all the abuse you dish out.

My 2 channel music system is currently a Carver C1 preamp and a Rotel 980BX power amp. Despite the wacky holographic circuitry, the C1 is a solid, well built, very quiet preamp.

I use Rotel RC1090 and Rotel RB1090.
The RC1090 has gotta go but I've been thinking that for years. Lately the Icon Audio LA4 MKII has taken my fancy. I just don't know(sigh). :)

Hi Guys:

My mainstream setup is an Arcam A80 integrated (with pre-amplifier outputs), this is Bi-Amped with an Arcam P90 into a pair of ELAC 207.2 speakers.

4311

I suppose Its kind of both integrated and Pre-power ... :?:

It still sounds pretty good though.
