Need $1500 integrated amplification suggestions...

Some units on the radar:

Cary SLI-80 or F1
Classe 2100
Red Wine Audio 30.2
CODA integrated
Musical Fidelity A5

Any others worth considering? I am going a different direction in my system (downgrading amplification) and upgrading my speakers. I currently have a Tyler Linbrook Sig System, and will be going to the new Decade line, which are easier to drive, and more tube-friendly. I am looking for musical, easy to listen to, detailed, and full. Not overly bloomy, nor dry. And, I don't need a ton of power: 50wpc is plenty for these 8-ohm speakers.

Budget (new or used) is $1500. Tubes or Solid-state is OK: I just want a nice sound. Most $1500 (used) integateds sound pretty darn good.
solid state will sound different than vacuum tubes. I own the SIM i-1 integrated amplifier and can recommend it. Read the reviews to see if you're interested in auditioning it. I found that, unlike tubes, I didn't have to "baby" it; rather you can forget about it and focus on the music. good luck in your search.
I've owned the VSi-55 and the RWA Sig 30, not the 30.2. Of these two I liked the ARC better. It had great power, a really deep 3D soundstage and solid build quality. I found with my setup it wasn't as transparent as I wanted--only complaint. People tell me I need to go a few steps up the ARC line to get the transparency I want. Some day I just might.

The RWA is a great little amp but in the end I just didn't listen to as much music. A friend of mine suggested that maybe battery wasn't the way for me to go. Sounds weird but it lacked a certain energy, almost too calm. Not dry but no bloom at all. I wouldn't get in to battery gear again without an extended audition.

You should take these thoughts lightly because so much is system dependent and there are many folks connected to ears that love both of these. If resale matters, ARC has much better resale value.
Musical Fidelity A308 intergrated amp.Hard to find but an excellent piece and great value.
