Help! Overwhelmed with amp/speaker pairings


Novice Member
Looking for integrated amp recommendations for these bookshelf speakers : the Revel M16 Concerta 2's and the Polk Reserve R100's. My target budget for an integrated amp is up to $1,000. Desired amp features are a good DAC, CD and turntable connections-maybe Bluetooth/wifi, but not mandatory. Some of the amps I am considering are the Arcam A10 and the Rotel A12, but am open to other suggestions. I have developed brain-lock trying to figure out how to factor in ohms, watts, etc. Any constructive advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have heard the Revel's on the end of a Cyrus One HD and it sounded very good, so that might be an option for you. The Rotel is also a pretty versatile amp but I'm not sure how well it would work with the Revel's. There is no need to worry about watts ohms etc, any amp with a decent output of around 50w and above will work just fine.
