Amps from the 1980's -- What gear holds up sonically? Reliably?

Time for Two Ways !
Love 2 way speakers. I live in NYC so aesthetically and size wise I think 2 way speakers work best for me (though I still would like to own large fullrange floor standers some day). I love the look of some monitors on nice stands!For me, the Danis...

A little help on choosing amps
Thanks for the input. Do you think I should sell the LS/trade out for another pre. It's only a month old so I won't get hosed on it. Do you have a rec in the 2-3k range that might be a fit?Sound signature wise, what differences would there be betw...
