    Im searching for a decent Integrated Stereo Amplifier for the bedroom as a second system when the kid steal the tv, i cant make my mind up due to lack of knowledge as i have only had AV amps, currently own a Anthem MRX 300.

    I Will be using Monitor Audio Gold GX100 for now, but will be getting some budget speaker in the future like some Q220i or KEF Q100

    Im looking at the following but have know idea which is best buy, although i have researched them, so question is, which is the best buy, and which is the best bargain, £220 is my max limit

    Brand new?

    or

    Marantz PM7001 for £160
    Marantz PM-66 SE for £69
    Arcam Alpha 9 for £175
    Arcam A65 Plus for £99
    NAD C320 BEE for £90
    AudioLab 8000S for £220
    Rotel RA-05 SE (special edition) £150
    MARANTZ PM6010OSE £75

    Any input will be greatly appreciated
