Hello Guys

Am looking for a good LIVELY integrated Amplifier.

Am currently using NAD C388.

Dac+ Streamer currently is Lindemann Limetree Network .

Have Furutech cabling already.

Speakers are PSB X2T (will upgrade them next year).

Preference of Music EDM/Chill/ Deep House and similar types.

Any options <4

Thanks

Nad is not a lively amp as it is muted, trust me on this.
I can say that for sure .

Great VFM amp and have tons of power though

Ideally, Upgrade the speakers first and buy a matching amplifier later on.
NAD & PSB is a well known matched combination AFAIK.

honestly am happy with speakers and next upgrade is not cheap so I have to collect funds but I can pick amp now

Does the Cambridge Audio CXA81 count as lively?

I found it much livelier in comparison to the Marantz PM6006 and the SR6013. But thats a rather limited yardstick

If it is anything like is younger sibling the AXR85, it would be a lush, warm amp with smooth highs. I A/B’d it against a Marantz PM8006 and the Marantz was way more lively and exciting compared to the laid back sound signature of the Cambridge.

You can also try yamaha amps, i am a big fan of that company, pity their high end amps are no where to be seen in india. I believe they sound not very forward but lively.

I think the Rega Elex-R would match your preference for a lively sound
