I tried some 'high-end' AV amps from Pioneer and Denon in the past and was very disappointed in the 2-channel sound. The only integrated I've been happy with was the Arcam AVR500 and the AVR600 was even more highly rated at the time, as suggested earlier. In general, I've found that separate processors and power amps give a much better performance and the Arcam AV888 I've had for the last few years has been the best piece of kit by far. They are relatively cheap now (especially without the 3D bypass) and the surround sound is excellent too. Anthem amps always seem to get good reviews too but I haven't heard them, and the older Marantz pre-power combinations are probably excellent value for money.
