Personal amp evolution

Seeing the over night success of the speaker evolution thread, it may be interesting to see what type of amp(s) we have all run. Same deal as the other thread-we will sort of create a puzzle of our systems you'll have to visit multiple threads to put everything together!!! ;)
For me I started:
Adcom GFA-565 monoblocks
Rotel RB-990bx
Jeff Rowland Design Group Model 5
Balanced Audio Technology(BAT) VK-60

either a CAT JL2, BAT VK-75se or Tenor 75Wp on the horizon.
Good time for me to add my list as I just made a very satisfactory upgrade :

1982 JVC receiver - 60W (ha!) plus cheesy tone controls

1991 Nakamichi receiver 3 - 35W - blew the JVC away

2001 Rotel RA-972 integrated amp - 60W - really blew the Nak away

2004 Acurus A200 amp - 200W - harsh and brittle using RA-972 as preamp

2004 Rotel RC-995 preamp - really sings with the Acurus amp

I should be happy for a long time to come as the RC995/A200 combo sounds better than I could have imagined and has more power than I will ever need (never say that huh?!).
A UK perspective:
1978 Quad 45/303, lasted 20 years a very good early SS comb
1999. E.C.Audio Finestra (early Tom Evans)/ Quad 606, a clear improvement, particularly the pre. Now used by my son
2003. Finestra/ Pass Labs Aleph 3, I can'nt see myself getting rid of the Aleph
2003. Graaf WFB-one/Aleph 3, very good Italian valve pre with good phono stage.
2004. Conrad Johnson Premier 17/ Audio Synthesis Passion Phono stage/Aleph 3. As near perfect as I can see myself needing ( I know, we all say that)
Guess I'll add mine after seeing this post has run for over 2.5 years.

Start: Acurus A150
Parasound 1500A
Anthem Amp2 SE
VAC PA100/100
McIntosh MC126
Wow Amps i have had.
Starting in The teen years . My very first amp was actualy two Langvin Public address 250 watters. I had to replace all 4 tubes per chassis to operate them. and it cost me a summer of lawn mowing. They didnt have the quality i soon learned to appreciate. I next bought a 20 watt per channel intergrated bare chassis from lafayette radio corp. it severed well till I was handed down a Fisher 101A with a matching tuner. But as a kid "tubes" we now obsolete. I remember smashing that unit for kicks,/
I again found a nice retailer who offered used equipent and in high school i got my first Marantz 1030 and then a 1060 with 104 tuners. The speakers were marantz and I still have them, Upgraded in collage to bi amp and used the 1060 as a tweeter amp and bought a DC 300 III for the bass, soon needed larger woffers. and bought 18 inch JBL's I still have in 8 cu ft cabinets.addd another DC 300 and a Clarion Intergrated amp with huge input flexibility, Im now running two crown dc 300 's a BOSE 1800 pro, and a hafler 120P. with dolby digital via a yamaha reciever.
Ive had along the path a Phase linear stereo 200 and 400's both self destructed.The same with the Dynaco stereo 120 and a Dynaco stereo 400 and a beat up by a band DC150 crown. But with a loading factor in the 2 ohm range I expect that to happen to weaker amps, I now have established a vintage electronics business located in Upstate NY and at wolf_audio on eBay.
Theres a dynaco SCA 80 there now.
ARC VS110...harkens back to the tube magic of yesteryear without the limitations of frequency or control.
