Is there really any other option for an amp other than McIntosh?

Also, Pass offers the INT-250 and INT-150. The INT-60 is 30wpc Class A, then 'slides' into A/B up to 60wpc. The other two are straight A/B of 250wpc & 150wpc.

That said, McIntosh offers a 'bunch' of integrated amps that all operate in A/B.

You don't say what speakers you intend to mate it to, connectivity requirements, need for DAC, nor minimum power output requirement, but if you're looking for at least 175 wpc (8 ohm)/no DAC, I recently considered the PASS INT-250, Moon 700i and Vitus RI-100, and settled on the INT-250. Now that Gryphon is available in the US, I'd toss the Diablo 300 into the mix.

I'll add the NAIM Supernait 3, Luxman 509x and Luxman 590axii. Also the Hegel H390 and H590. The VAC 170i is a wonderful sounding all tube amp. All these amps (and the other amps mentioned above) sound outstanding. But they do sound different from one another.

You didn't state your budget. These amps are a bit pricey...$5000 to $15,000.
