amplifier upgrade advice

Solid State | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
trying to improve my system one piece at a time and amplifier upgrade next in line.

currently have thorens td 160 super from vinyl nirvana, onkyo 7030 cd, kenwood ka-7100, jbl l5 and 4412a speakers. my listening is 90% vinyl.

i like the 7100 but all original and 40 years old and i’ve got the itch to update/improve.

i’ve been concentrating mostly on new yamaha a-s2100 or parasound integrated but am open to other integrated or separates in the sub $2500 range.

the yamaha retails for $3500 but there are sellers on the bay offering new for $2300. sellers have a good amount of positive feedback, but i’d hate to make what for me is a large purchase only to have issues with non-reputable seller and no warranty. i did contact one of the ebay sellers who is shipping from CA and the response led me think that english was not their first language. their response was “This unit comes with four Yamaha many facture warranty”

can get parasound in my price range but have read mixed reviews on phono section and i don’t think i need the internal dac on parasound. also like the a/b speaker option on the yamaha.

no place to go audition amps in my area doesn’t make the decision any easier. i would prefer something neutral to warmer soundwise, which i’ve read this line of yamaha fit into.

any advice/opinions would be appreciated
