I recently bought a pair of epos m15.2 floorstanding speakers and I'm looking to upgrade my amp so I can do them justice. (My old amp was an ancient Cambridge P40). My budget is around £300 and I mostly use the speakers to play vinyl so the amp will have to come with a phono stage. I've already had a look around and was recommended by Superfi the Rotel RA-04SE, which looks and sounds pretty nice. I've also been looking at some second hand amps, notably an old Cyrus Straight Line for around £220. This doesn't have a phono stage so I'd have to buy a budget pre amp for that, perhaps the Cambridge Azur 640C.

I'd say the most important factor for me is an amp which provides good solid bass, and something which can really drive the M15.2s as I've heard they are a little inefficient.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I am a bit of a Hi-fi novice at the moment.}
