Need to identify a good integrated amp that can deliver high current and about 100 wrms at 4 ohms and serve as a building block for a new system...first upgrade in 20+ years. Will run Ohm Walsh 1000s3 speakers in 14 * 14 room. Looking at $2k max new price. Want something that I can later use as a preamp as I start to upgrade. Long term lust is for Mcintosh. 50 years old and listen to all kinds of music but lots of acoustic jazz, female vocals, acoustic guitar, piano both classical and jazz, 70s singer songwriters and rock, blues and jazz guitar. Replacing old Mcintosh MA 5100 integrated. Open to hybrid and SS, maybe tubes. Live in Hawaii so cant really hear much of anything and few high end shops so durability is key. Have read about Portal Panache, various Music Fidelity, Cambridge audio all would be bought off internet. Using CA 740C cd player and works well.
