    Last time I had an integrated amp was when I got one in a package deal of 3 components on ebay..A Philips tuner, a Philips int. amp, and a Onkyo CD player. The tuner was high end so that's what I kept, I did test and sell off the Philips int amp and it sounded mighty fine indeed, excellent midrange definition and extended deep base. 75 WPC . The buyer left me extremely positive feedback as he felt it was better than average too. I only got $100 for it, kinda regret selling it.

    P,S, Both the Philips tuner and int, amp were full size components with wood side panels attached, late 70's vintage.

      The Bel Canto eOne C5i is a real good entry level integrated amp. It has a built-in MM phono stage, built-in 24/96 DAC with 5 inputs, and 60wpc (8 ohms) and 120 wpc (4 ohms). Plus its half-width size makes it suitable for small spaces. Under $2000.

        Hi Myles, just wondering when you plan to post your review of the Fuoco amp? Also, do you have the current Massimo Fuoco version....I understand this version has several improvements? Finally, which speaker cables are you using with it? Looking forward to the review. Many thanks
