Amp for Dynaudios

I'm currently in the process of building a 2channel system and I'm just starting to look at speakers. I'm currently thinking of picking up a pair of Dynaudio contour s1.4 since the dealer is close to where I live and has excellent service, and of course I enjoyed listening to the speakers I just don't know what some of the other brands would sound like.

My music library consists of quite a bit of rock and metal, but there's also plenty of jazz and blues so I'm looking for an amp that's good with different genres. The dealer carries simaudio, Cary and vtl so I wanted to get some ideas from you guys on what I should be focusing on regarding amps and preamps.

I've only listened to sim integrated and I wasn't a huge fan, it just sounded a bit too sterile for my tastes. My other option is a Cary SLI 80 but I haven't listened to it. I'm also considering the BAT integrated but that dealt is quite far. These are all options around $3000, but today I just noticed the Moscode 401Au and although it a lot more expensive i'd consider it if I knew that the difference is worth and would suit my needs. At the same time I'll need some preamp recommendations to go with it.

Any other ideas are always welcome since there's a lot out there that I wouldn't know abou.
Hi, I am using with Pass Labs XA.5 and it's really nice match Dynaudio Moniters.
I run the Bel Canto Ref 1000 mk II/Pass X1 pre with my Audience 82s and it sounds sweet. They do need the current to sing and open up.

Your smaller Dyns might do fine with the Ref 500. Enjoy!
Guitar amps (either tubes or solid state)and their likes or dislikes dont apply to 2 channel stereo.I was a touring guitar player for 17 years and use a Solid state amp driving my Dynaudio
Toetapfactor: thanks for that comment. I guess I should remove any bias I may have towards tube guitar amps and just go in without any expectations when auditioning various amps.
