Finally upgrading my amp

My budget is $2500.

My system currently consists of a pair of B&W 630's, an old Denon 50 watt reciever (DRA-550) from the mid 80's,  and a Marantz 5004 cd player.  And a technics 1500c Turntable.

Is integrated the way to go with my budget?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


@jjbeason14  , I think this is actually the same integreated, but new, from MD for $2300; and looking at the specs section (which does not look the same when I click on "specs" of the "open box") it says it is 60 wpc, not 30 wpc.


. . . for " a few dollars more" ($3200) here is a EL84 based Luxman (less power) from MD, and it has a phono stage!


and for the SET experience (which I admit that although I am intrigued by it I have never experienced it) , again from MD, for about 3k, another Icon.
