I LOVE INTEGRATEDS!!!

They just make sense to me.

I have a 47 Labs 4717 integrated in my bedroom driving PMC TB2i's



and a Yamaha in my office... driving JBL 4301b's



AND, I had, and REALLY enjoyed the Audio Note OTO SE EL-84 based Integrated.

I would love to try the little Shindo Appetite integrated...

In one of my rigs I'm currently using a Wyred 4 Sound STI-500 with WBT binding posts and RCAs.



It may not be the fanciest looking piece of equipment, but I love the sound. Effortless dynamics, great soundstaging/imaging, extremely low noise floor(silent while running).




I previously owned a Manley Stingray. I also found this to be a nice sounding piece of gear, especially in triode mode with Mullards in the preamp section. Unfortunately, it didn't have enough juice to power my current speakers, so it had to go. Fortunately, a friend purchased it, so I may own it again one day.

Lastly, I purchased a Cambridge 540C for my girlfriend a little over a year ago.



It's a fantastic little integrated for the money.

The Bryston B-60R was my first piece of gear to make me realize that I wasn't hearing everything on my CDs. It introduced me to the world of quality equipment, and I still enjoy it in my office system.



My second integrated was the Simaudio i-7 which I love in my two channel setup.

I have always had an integrated, just don't have the room for separates.

Also have the Marantz 1060 and Pioneer SA9500. Here are my favorites.

I am currently using the McIntosh MA2275 tube integrated amp. I am very happy with it. Space was the real issue why I decided to go with an integrated, If I had more room I would have went separates.

I had and still have an Arcam AVR250 receiver, not sure if this counts as an integrated amp.
