Recommend a non-polite sounding amp / integrated

Looking for a a non-polite sounding amp / integrated. By polite I mean Denon, Musical Fidelity, Arcam. I had Rotel and Adcom and they were harsh. I was thinking about Pass (maybe is just very detailed) or a chip amp. Probably not digital or tube amp.

Integrated is okay as long as it does not have digital volume.

Price under 3K and driving a variety of easy to drive single driver speakers at 70-75dB in a small room.

I deleted my posts in this thread. My apologies for being part of the problem. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

No need for anyone to delete their posts just because a couple of members choose  to not understand what the OP is looking for. No reading between the lines needed. No need to acquiesce to some who want to make it more difficult than what it is:  a request for suggestions with some parameters set forth, some absolute, others not so much. 

All the best,

Not worthless to me. I got some good information here.


Thanks for the recommendation. I like the Technics brand and also understand digital amps can have more of a "direct" sound than analog. The only one I heard was great for detail retrieval and had no bass compare to analog. But other brands may be different.

Uncledemp. you are not. Don't let a few grouchy people ruin things here. What is right and what is wrong? It all depends on your point of view.
