Integrated brand choice -- Simaudio, Hegel or Mark Levinson?

Narrowed down my integrated brand choice to these three.  Looking to spend $7-8k (used or new).  These will power Focal Electra 1028be's for now, with a possible upgrade to something else next year.
I'm familiar with Simaudio, but haven't heard/owned the Hegel or Mark Levinson.
Opening the floodgates for your opinions...
Had the 340ix at one point and was good with the sound, but I'm looking for the next bracket up. 

Not really interested in tubes...prefer the simplicity of solid state.
Looking for something that is neutral-ish and just gets out of the way while providing sufficient power to drive what I have now (and leaves room for something that needs a bit more).  The Focals can lean on the brighter side, but that doesn't bother me.
ML or the newest Krell. I can categorically state that the ML 585 is not bright and lean. I’d bet that the Krell isn’t either. Both can be had for under 8k. Very high quality units.
I've listened to the h390 Hegel and felt it was a bit dry and antiseptic. I'm sure the h590 outperforms it. Ended up with a Naim Supernait 3 which I love. To me Naim gives me what I like to hear: rich, full-blooded clarity. Good luck and let us know what you end up doing. 
Don’t know about the other two, but I’d rule out the Hegel as they manufacture in China, the land of little or no quality control. Check out Luxmann integrateds in your price range, made in Japan with excellent quality control. I’m unfamiliar with the other two brands offerings. Good luck with whatever you choose.
