Budget Audiophile Looking For Amplifier Suggestions

Hi All,

I'm looking suggestions for a high quality ss 2-channel amplifier (120-150 WPC) made between 1998-2005 that may have sold for $2000-3000 but today would go for $800-$1100. What would you be looking for?

Best Regards,

I bought a Sunfire Symphonic reference 200W for $900. Recently I bought Rotel RB-1090 for $875 on Audiogon. 
Dave mentions Mcintosh above.

I've looked at Macs for a long time and never saw one that I thought was reasonably priced;
talk about holding value!

I see an integrated suggested and would like to hear more recommendation there as well.

Acurus DiA-100 mk2, it requires good components to be paired with it, but it has lots of power and a passive pre-amp. And you can pick one up for $300-400.
