You could try the Musical Fidelity KW500 integrated - not cheap but it's a first rate piece of kit. It'll comfortably outperform many high end pre/power combinations.

If budget is a problem, try the Meridian G51. It's not as powerful as the MF or Krell, but will still give you a great sound for a very reasonable cost.

Cheers,

David

I don't how much you intend to spend for your new amp, but I think that the Summit's deserve at least something like Chord CPA 2600 or something equivalent. ( not important the brand or model, but the quality level )
don't you ?

The CPM 2600 is a great amp! I use Chord SPM 1200E and SPM 1900 with my Martin Logans to extremely good effect!

Yes, I unfortunatly don't have the CPM2600, but have the SPM 600 with the LINN wakonda, and it makes already very good sound.
Probably next step I will change the Wakonda to the CPA 2200, when I'll get the money for.

It would definitely be a change for the better... They are commonly seen on the used market...
