Need a good AMP to power my DynAudio BM12's

Any ideas?

I already have a Alesis RA300 but I plan on running my B&W's through that and then running the dyn's through the better, more expensive amp you kind people are about to suggest.

No real budget as such.. But obviously as cheap as poss

I'd look at used Brystons (3B and up) and new or used Rotel high-current models (1070? 1080? I'm pretty sure on those model numbers).

Not too pricey, great bang for the bank.

Yeah, the Rotel amps are good as well as used Bryston, Anthem, Adcom and such. Check on Audiogon.

I have to big up Adcom. I have tried a bunch of different power amps with my Proacs, including a $1200 Audio Research amp and a custom built amp. The Adcom GFA 555 post mods (the caps it came with were severely band limited) sounds really great, WAAAAAY better than the Audio Research amp in terms of transient response and accuracy of high end. Stock Adcom amps won't cut it, but once you get the right values in there, they are amazing for the $.
