After auditioning several brands I am quite convinced that I will purchase Dynaudio's 52 SEs. I will pair them with a 122C.
The question is what to use to power them? I will use separates and would like to hear your opinion regarding the sonic quality of different brands of amps. I will look into used amps to find some value (and because my budget is set). Your suggestions are very welcome. BTW the pre/pro will be an upgraded B&K Ref 30.
I'd have to recommend the Densen Beat B-300 or B-300XS to be a great counterpart for the 52SE's. The sound is very nice, better than most if not all in the price class. Also dont forget Musical Fidelity and Primare and maybe Arcam.
