Came across a completely opposite choice while idly browsing for 'vintage amplifier' on ebay, an arcam delta 60.
Switchable mm mc phono stage in it, which is interesting.

Anyone ever heard one? I kinda like the old delta range, the 1 prefix ones, not the 2 prefix ones which were all plasticky like the incoming plastic front alphas at the time.
Also starring Rex Hamilton as Abraham Lincoln

I know it’s not an integrated amp.. https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/swap-me ... d-amp.html

I have heard the power amp version of this which just uses lot of OP amps to get the output.

From what I remember, it’s basically a re-vamped A60. If you go down that route, I have the matching Delta tuner and Alpha CD player(in all its TDA1541 glory) sitting around doing nothing....
