Bluetooth/WIFI integrated amp recs?

more_vert
I'm seeking recommendations for a integrated amp w/Bluetooth & WIFI. Last year, I thought I'd found what I needed with the PS Audio Sprout but after looking deeper, discovered that its 50Hz cutoff was not a good match for my speaks (Altec 604e's in Barzilay cabs). Is there anything available w/multiple inputs (CD transport, Transporter, tuner and hopefully phono)? In particular, my wife wants something that I can leave on 24/7 so she can easily play music, etc. from her iPhone without having to power up the existing tube integrated (Scott 222c). I would like something versatile that allows me to switch back to the Scott w/o too much trouble. I'm pretty ignorant of the current offerings and technology so any suggestions would be very appreciated... Thanks!

Thanks for your replies! I'll look into the Marantz and Emotive Audio you've suggested and if nothing else, it'll educate and sharpen my focus a bit.
Tonsofun - I really wanted the Sprout to work for me as I think its an ideal solution save for the 50Hz cutoff. The Altecs measure flat to 38Hz and have a significant drop off below that. I know it doesn't seem like much but I really don't want the amplifier dictating the frequency range - usually, its the other way 'round. If I'm wrong, please correct me as I have used PS Audio gear in the past and wouldn't hesitate to try it again.
Thanks again guys!
Not knocking the Sprout but I see its niche on someone's desk powering speakers with 3" or 4" woofer cones and a decent but easy to drive headphone. The built in 50 Hz cutoff makes sense there, not so much with full range or near full-range gear. I think you're making a good choice crossing that one off the list. Best of luck with whatever you decide on!
If built in Wifi isn't a make it or break it feature (there are ways to add that) http://emotiva.com/products/amplifiers/pres-and-pros/ta-100 + http://emotiva.com/products/accessories/btm-1 gives you most of what you asked for, for $449. This a new line from Emotiva but my DAC, 3 Amps and 5 speakers are well past their warranty and still performing beautifully.

Hi JBryan,
Travis here with PS Audio if you are interested in trying out Sprout we offer a 30 day in home trial. I think you would find that it does a good job with your 604's. Feel free to give us a call with any questions.
Thanks!

The Marantz M-CR611 is the updated version of the one I have in my dining room. It supports AirPlay, Internet radio, CDs, FM but no phono stage. The Arcam Solo Music adds SACD support and a phono stage, but loses AirPlay compatibility and is likely to be more expensive.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
