I do know this question is very broad.
But I am new and trying to minimize my mistake on matching.
Any good suggestions of integrated amplifier for Dynaudio evoke 20?
Thank you.

Budget, Tube, SS, Class D?  Do you need one with a DAC?

Do you could inform speaker impedance and SPL ?

If it is a ease load 8Ω hi sensitivity speaker you could use a tube amp or a inexpensove sweet tone FET integrated as Rega.

Ouch, well at least its not 4 ohms, it will require a expensive very muscular amp.

Hey!

     Hmmm, with that spec... it is likely that it could dip down below 4 ohms also. So, for SS I would look for one that comfortable driving 4 ohm speaker. And with tube just try 4 and 8 ohm taps and see which sound better.

    Would help if the poster tell us the budget and how big is the room though.

Without knowing your budget here are a few suggestions from low to high-

Peachtree Nova 2 125, 150 and 300  The Nova 2 is much improved from the older peachtree gear.

Parasound 200 Classic Int.

Parasound Hint

Cary Audio SL 300.2D  My son just bought one.  It sounds fabulous.  It's list price is $6K but you can pick them up for $3500 or so.  450 wpc at 4 ohm, does streaming and has a very good DAC that would be comparable to a DAC  in the $1200-1500 range.  It is very music, detailed and throws a huge soundstage.  It is very dynamic.

Primare Prisma I-25 or I-35

Marantz PM KI Ruby-  I heard this last month and it is a beautiful sounding Int.  It has great tone and some of the best piano that I have heard.  The Marantz Model 30 sounds muddy in comparison.

Luxman AX505uxii.  When I decide to ditch my Pass amp and BAT preamp for an Int, I will go with a luxman AX507 or 509.  These are very detailed, clear and refined with excellent punch and dynamics.
