Sub £1k Integrated Amp With HT Bypass


Active Member
Hi Guys

Does anyone have any recommendations for sub £1k integrated amps wit ht bypass or equivalent?
I'm not 100% happy with the music performance of my Marantz sr 6012 avr.
Have considered the marantz pm 8006 and yamaha as 1100 but am looking for options.

Huge thanks in advance for any advice!

PS a phono stage would be preferable

Arcam A38 used - £350-500 (it's called processor mode)

350 gets you a tatty one. A mint black one went recently for 400 on ebay. I paid 475 for mine, but it had just been back to Arcam for a service (also mint), so that was reflected in the price.

Edit phono is a factory option though, so that needs to be considered when looking
