    @fraggler, I think you've heard my home theater system. I use pre-outs from a Denon x4700 AVR and older Emotiva Xpa amps to power the speakers.

    Home theater is a lot more forgiving than music when it comes to amplifiers, it likes instantaneous power more than finesse. I used to use the internal Denon amps and they sounded OK, I think the Emotivas or Monoliths would work great for you.

    Do note the Monoliths get HOT, you'll want open racks or cooling for either one.

    Hi everyone. I am having a problem with my turntable setup where I hear a persistent buzzing noise after turning on my amplifier and phono pre. I swapped out tubes and the issue is still present. I checked online for additional information and it appears like I have a ground loop which is weird as my setup hasn't changed at all. Have you all experienced this type of issue happening over time? Would I need to purchase a ground loop eliminator for each device?
    I have an eddie current classic phono fed into an integrated amplifier. Both devices are connected to the same power strip.

    have you tried plugging them into another separate outlet that is not plugged into the outlet of the power strip
    basically separate the phono stage from the integrated .

    I managed to eliminate hum from mine by adding ferrite beads to the cables coming into the phono
