I am looking to purchase a set of Definitive Technology Mythos ST Loudspeakers in the near future. After much consideration and research, I have narrowed down a short-list of integrated stereo amplifiers that I am considering matching with the ST's. The top end of my allocated budget for an integrated amplifier is $4,500.
My short-list includes the following:
1) Naim Nait (5i-2 & XS-2)
2) Simaudio Moon (i-1 & i-3.3)
3) Vincent Audio (SV-236 Mkii)
4) Krell (S-300i)
I would greatly appreciate any advice on matching the ST's with any of the integrated amps listed above. Furthermore, I am also open to loudspeaker recommendations in conjunction with one of the above offerings. My budget for loudspeakers is $4,000 and I will be using this system for both music and video applications.
Finally, I would be indebted to Mr. Robert Hartley for his advice on this situation as well. Being a TAS reader for many years, I have truly appreciated the insight and wisdom of the staff; in particular, Mr. Hartley!
I look forward to hearing back regarding your recommendations. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
