Got me a pair of AR90's. They are quite lovely!
Paired with a Rega p2 a cambridge phono stage, NAD 3140 (love) , and an emotiva xpa-2 490 Watts per channel into 4 ohms. Listening to meddle by pink floyd right now. The clarity is UNREAL! The people at Acoustic Research were absolutely geniuses!!!

NAD 3140 Stereo Amplifier
Okay, what we have here is a nice nad, 3140 stereo amplifier this. These amps were built in the mid 90s and actually has some really cool features, including this speaker, EQ, which is actually a bass, enhancer and - and it's got soft clipping - and this thing called SLC, which is speaker, lead compensation. The pots were all clean here, so they are really quiet, except for this one, where it has a little bit of speaker pop because it is a switch
Looking for an amplifier to pair with Magnepan LRS and a powered subwoofer.
Used Bryston amps are a great value and a 3B or 4B tend to do some work for magnepans. If you're looking for cheaper I've heard good things about the NAD 3140 and I would assume the 3155 would work similarly.
NAD 3140 AMPLIFIER OVERVEIW AND TEST
If that distortion comes back, I won't look into that because I thought was done. While that distortion was there, it could even be now don't think it was the track, but it could have been. I don't think he was, but I will check and to turn it off and turn it back on and just before it goes being on long enough. Now it's been on a lot longer.

* Going to a cobbler to stretch them. But I've read mixed things about this procedure, so not sure it's worth it. * Buying a used pair of 3140 in a ½ size bigger, resole them and sell my current pair. Please note that these upper leather have broken in plenty and I've had these boots for years.
