I need to replace my Yamaha AS 2000 integrated that I currently use with the RF 7II speakers. The Yamaha is too forward and accentuates the top end too much which is a bit rough around the edges too. The pairing of the AS 2000 integrated and the RF 7II's really makes them a fatiguing set of speakers. My sources are a Macbook Pro ( Audiophilleo 2/ Topping D30 dac), Krell SACD Standard III, Jolida JD 100, and I listen in a smaller family room 11 ft W by 18 ft L x by 8 ft H. No options for changing placement since the family room is crammed with furniture and gear. I am looking for recommendations of an integrated amp you have heard with the RF7II's that will drive the woofers so the bass will have more punch. I am looking to spend as little as possible (definitely well under $1000) . Since the bass has not punched well with my current integrated, I have been using a subwoofer, so I probably need an integrated that has outputs to connect to a sub. I have been thinking about a vintage McIntosh maybe , since I saw where an RF7II owner was happy with that pairing, but any and all suggestions for other integrated amps are welcome. So here is what I am looking for: 1. integrated amplifier well under $1000 2. outputs for a subwoofer 3. an integrated you have heard with the RF7II's that compliments the bass capability of the speaker 4. music I listen to primarily is Jazz from the 50's 60's and 70's Thank you for your ideas.
