    Any suggestions? I am also open to the idea of a DIY solid-state amplifier.

    Would prefer <$200, if possible.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
    I picked up a couple old Harman Kardon amps from the late 70's / early 80's. Great amps, great sonic qualities, usually find'em on ebay, craiglist etc. for $50-$100

    You could also pick up an older receiver on craigslist for less than $50.

    I got the 4x100 ( http://www.sureelectronics.net/goods.php?id=960 ) and so far I think it sounds great.

    Here are some Parts Express options:

    This one also looks like it has a mic preamp?:

    And here's a link showing all of Parts Express amplifiers:
