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 that receiver/speaker combination you have is really good.  i've heard a very similar combo and it was one of the best I've ever heard, beating out separates from parasound.  of course, this was a long time ago.  but still, glorious sound. 


Thanks sdog!

I sort of feel the same way. Though I Would like to have a DAC and Streamer.

Anyone have good recommendations?
