Avalon Opus with Marantz PM-11S2

Are these two a good match?
Brands like Accuphase ,Spectral and Pass Lab are to expensive for me at the moment.
I agree with Pdreher,garbage in /garbage out with that Marantz pm 11.I would suggest holding off and saving some cash,If going S.S Pass labs would be a nice choice,Ive owned a few ....but back when I had Avalons I ran Jadis tube gear with great success.
If you can swing an extra $400 to $500, try the Pathos Logos. It's a hybrid integrated that will allow you to tweak the sound to your liking with some tube rolling.... and they look great too. I've owned the Pathos TT and it was a nice sounding, well constructed piece.
the Pathos is a good suggestion.
But how reliable are Italian amps?
I`ve heard some horrible stories.

Pass Labs is to expensive at the moment.
Jadis are tubes ,never had tubes before.
My Pathos was trouble free for the time I had it. Suggest you make another post as to whether or not other Audiogoners have found the Pathos integrateds to be reliable.
