Looking for a ‘’No braine’r Integrated amplifier under 7500 or so

hello all!

I’m looking for ideas on a ‘slam dunk’ flexible high value solidly performing INTEGRATED amp for an office system, but one that for a while can be my ‘go to’ or primary unit and is a bit above entry level.

preference is to buy new, but preowned in the right scenario works for me as well.

Pesently I’m starting all over in amassing gear and felt to initiate the project by wading into the water slowly.

I have on hannd remnants of my former   efforts in a then very good line stage preamp and DAC, though the DA age is showing and well behind current popular trends  and support for new formats.

also on hand are some ‘so so’ amps, and several pairs of speakers and I just added a Blue Sound Noede 2I.

ultimately I see nearly everything being replaced but felt starting with a very nice Integrated seems as good a starting point as any.

topology is as such, not too too imoportant. decent power however is key as speakers being paired here are as yet unknown. likelyhood here is a pair of monitors and a sub.

the music playback will likely be streaming from providers and NAS files.

Aesthewtix Mimas has peaked my interest currently. and having owned bAT their INT is interesting too. apart from these two I’m wide open to suggestions on current one box amp solutions..

glass or sand power here makes little difference apart from thereafter mating speakers to the INT power constraints..

your thoughts, and expieriences here are vastly appreciated. THX
Decware...for when you get tired of the high end merrigoround! Otherwise, Yamaha A S701....and get efficient speakers...you’ll thank me later!


presently running in the new Pulsar graphines with my dusty but trusty Onkyo 805 receiver with about 60 hours on them by close of day today.

another pair of speakers, these being floorstanders from Phase technology i just had completely rebuilt should arrive back from the factory tomorrow… perhaps.

Sound anchor stands for the Graphine stand mounts are still on order.also awaiting several signal cables from Monolith for connectivity.

with all of the equipment on hand having been sitting static for quite some time now, I see another month or so at least before I could honestly begin apprasing anythibng.

the JA Pulsar G’s do seem to be advancing in their presentation fullness at least. their lower register compliment has been the one aspect not easily overlooked by virtue of its presence from day one. Both the Onkyo Rec and JA Pulsar’s demonstration are akin to being neweish as the Receivert has been sitting static for years pretty much, seeing nearly no use in the intereim. both run several hours daily in another room playing various FM stations.

FUN! FUN! yeah, loads of funl.
Here is why Coda is the best bargain for sure at $6500,Their CSIB integrated amplifier is a steal it is literally a #8 amplifier 
with 3 options, 150-300 wpc 1st 18 watts pure class A option 1
option-2 - 250-500wpc 12 first watts in classA
option3- 400-800wpc-8 first  watts ,
a scaled down version of their  great #7  preamp in pure class A.
Huge power transformer 3kva and 80k uf in power capacitors.Nobody even close to that and it’s a potted shielded Torroid the competition ,No.
The latest Jfet input stage,Nmosfet gain stage and 20 matched Bipolar resistors per Channel  on the output , up to 120 amps on demand for short peaks Nothing even at $10 k has transformers and current of this  magnitude, and 
a 10 year warranty parts,and labor ,the 1st year if there is a fault they will pay shipping up and back the 1st year, 5 year Transferrable warranty ,Stereo times best of 2020, and a great review due out soon ,they refuse to play politics with some of the advertisers out there regarding $$ reviews.Highly Recommended !!
And yysantabarbara owned both the coda Csib and the krell k300i (7k msrp) and sold the coda, kept the krell (which is beaten by many integrateds unddr 10k), haha.
