Smile Best SS Amp under $10,000

Hello,

Since I have sold my Devialet 250 months ago along with Focal Scala Utopia. I felt the need to rebuild a standmount oriented system of separate components this time.

I started ordering the following from my dealer:
- Aurender N10 streamer
- Chord Dave Dac/Pre
- Power amp ??
- Cables : Audioquest loom
- Speakers (Focal Sopra vs Dynaudio Contour)??

I will need your assistance to find the best power amp i can buy under 10k.

Note: Our region doesn't offer audio demo rooms so i will be buying the amp based on user feedback without audition or home demo.

Your amp selection will ultimately be influenced by which speaker you decide on, so I'd suggest first determining your speaker choice.

Where are you located and are the Focal Sopra and Dynaudio Contour what you are leaning towards for the speakers? I have become a huge fan of the current Class D offerings. They seem to shine on speakers like the ones you are considering. Just my opinion.

+1. I'm a big fan of everything Bryston makes, especially their power amps.

I bought an SST2 just before the cubed series came out. Wish I had known...
