Hi, all. I recently bought a pair of Dynaudio DM26's, and now I need a dedecent budget amp to help them shine. I have roughly $500 (350 GBP) to spend. I'd really like an integrated amp with a nice phono pre and either a sub out or line out. I think I've narrowed it down to two, the Music Hall a15.2 and the Yamaha A-S500. My gut says the Music Hall because it's a Music Hall, but what hifi has such a glowing review of the Yamaha. Any thoughts? Does anyone have any experience with these? I don't really have a way to audition either of them because I live in the States, and hi-fi shops here are few and far between. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you have other suggestions, I'm all ears. Thanks!

I have heard some peolpe say that the Yamaha can be too bright sounding, but paired with Dynaudio I would not be too worried. Music Hall a15.2 I have not heard myself. What is it that you like about the two ?
