Have you looked for a used M900u? Can be had for less than 10k. They are built like a tank and double down to 1 ohm. I have this amp and used it with the Sabrinas in a 24x16x9 room with great success!

+2.

Luxman are reported to be bringing out an updated amp so the 900u may be both more available and less costly.

With preamp and dac, it will put me at $20k.

I started with $8k budget for amp+dac.
I am open for stretching it, but not sure if I want to go as far as ~$20k.

There are many options out there, I need to get firm on the budget and start narrow them down.

Take a look at the Aesthetix Mimas with Dac module. There is one for sale at TMR audio.
I think you will like the price and the reviews are outstanding.

Pairing non-American made amplification with American made high-end speakers is just plain blasphemy in my book. McIntosh all the way!

I’ll second the Mimas! I purchased one a few months ago after considering a few more common options and was surprised how good it was, particularly for the price. It does fly under the radar somewhat but IMHO delivers exceptional value. You also have the luxury of rolling tubes should you wish to for additional tweaking of the sound you like…
