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.
Fuzzy memories -
Dyna Stereo 120
Dyna MK III's (still use for guitar)
Kenwood integrated amp
SAE 100wpc Amp
SAE 300wpc Amp (Jim B. design I think)
Threshold 4000 200wpc class A (Nelson Pass design)
(2) Threshold 4000's

OK, I stopped evolving, but that's why I'm reading what all of you have to say.
My list is not nearly as impressive. I do feel I have ended up with a winner.
Musical Fidelity 3.2CR
VAC Avitar SE
Sonic Euphoria PLC
Main rig:
Onkyo TSX-727 or something like that
Rotel RB-981
Mark Levinson ML-9
Naim NAP 250
Tube Audio Design TAD-60

1974 Sherwoood FM only 8900 Receiver
1979 Crown 1 Preamp with Dynaco(solid state) power amp
1990 NAD (3025?)Receiver '25' watt (with 6dB headroom)
2000 Yamaha DSP-A1 with Adcom GFA6000 multichannel amp for HT.

The Sherwood was an incredibly strong, honest sounding 60 watt receiver for its time, as is the classic NAD. Adcom- a solid performer, if not as refined or smooth on the upper end. The Yamaha is a competent HT amp and has some useful sound fields, but is hardly the last word in amplification. (Side note -An A-B session done with the big Apogees 30 years ago demonstrated the sonic difference between Rowland's best and Adcom's best power amps at the time. Let's just be kind and say the Adcoms didn't self destruct under a 1 ohm load. Neither were they pleasant to hear. The Rowland amplification let the magic come out of the hideously difficult to drive Apogees.)

The Crown/Dynaco combo was good, but not as good as you would expect on paper. Believe it or not, the NAD is the most musical, followed closely by my memories of that old Sherwood. (It was hooked up to a Phillips GA212 table and Hartley Zodiac 10" 2-ways that were amazing. All for under $ 800 - about the cost of a good shunyata AC plug. Sheesh!
The bass from that Sherwood was comparable to a lot of 200 watt amps out today. Pinball Wizard sounded like Pete Townsend and Entwhistle were in the room. Speaker placement and room acoustics helped, but this was a great amp!)

2005 - Dreaming of the next amp for the main system. Maybe Evanna will send me a Stingray for Channukah. Or Jeff will ship me a Concentra. Or...
