Firstly, thank you for your help in advance!

I am trying to find the best budget amp, under £100, to power my Mission M30 bookshelf speakers. Inputs will be a Pro-Ject Elemental turntable and a line input from a Hifiberry Dac2 Pro.

I am happy buying used from eBay, this was where I really need your guidance. There are so many integrated amps on eBay under £100, it is a little overwhelming.

I have been looking at:
  • Cambridge Audio A1 MK3 SE
  • Cambridge Audio A5
  • Cambridge Audio Azur 340a SE
I need 2 inputs, one for the record player and one for the RCA line in (AUX). It needs to have a phono pre-amp for the record player...I think? All of the above are integrated so they should come with the phono pre-amp?

Which would you choose?

Not sure if this helps, and although it's just £30 pounds over your budget, we have a warehouse deal on a Denon PMA-520AE (which is what I think you are looking for even though you have posted in the AVR section) which is certainly worth a look plus, sadly it requires collecting from the showroom as there is no packaging. But with £70 quid off the standard price, its certainly a bargain at £130
