I am listening mostly to clasasical music(a lot of piano solo). My Marantz SR4200 does not sound very well with my B&W 603 S3 speakers. I am looking for a stereo integrated amplifier to match my speakers and my music.

You might try using your computer as the source - with a soundcard upgrade to waveterminal u24 ($160 on

You can treat the jitter problem this way - and is convenient to have your collection under your finger tips.

Later, you can even add a good DAC to further improve the sound.

If you are still not happy with the sound, you might want to upgrade the speaker - B&W is a respected British company, but only their upper models sound really good.

But your idea about a different amp is a good one - will improve the sound some what.

Buy them used at or and save - this way, if you are not happy with it, you can re-sell and not lose much.

It's fun to experiment with different audio gears - and buying used, your loved ones wouln't give you that look either.

How about Rotel's RA-1062?

Either a Rotel or an NAD integrated would represent a considerable upgrade.
