I am looking down the road in the near future to upgrading my integrated amp. I am currently using an Unison Research Unico, 80 wpc into 8 Ohms driving the HT2-TLs (an Arcam CD-Diva 92 as source) and it sounds very nice, has a good soundstage, decent PRaT, is easy to listen to (no listener fatigue) but I can tell that I'm missing some music. (I've been to enough live venues to know I'm not getting a truly "live" type performance although I recognize in some cases it can be the recording.)
I have no decent audio stores in Spokane so I can't really audition a bunch of options and I can't really take the speakers on the road. I am likely looking at used gear on Audiogon and I've narrowed the choices to Pass Labs, Conrad Johnson, Classe, Plinius, and McIntosh because I've read a number of reviews and I'm confident that they won't lead my relatively neutral set-up into a really bright and difficult to listen to mess.
Also, I would consider Audio by VanAlstine's integrated but I am worried that it isn't a big enough bump over my current 80 wpc and I've also considered the Wyred 4 Sound integrated but I'm a little concerned about the whole "D" class amp sound and presentation. Any help would be appreciated.
