Need a new integrated, what say you?

Martin Logan 40 Dali Rubicon 6 KEF Reference 1 Dali Rubicon 8 Volti Rival current Based on this thread I am overdue for a speaker change. :)  
Horns with good timbre and tonality?
I own Volti Rivals and am very pleased with the sound.  These are my first horns as I needed the sensitivity paring with tube amps.  Can tailor the highs and mids with easy changes to the crossovers.  I roll off treble -3db due to my room.  Love t... 
Speaker recommendation £2-10k range
I had both the Dali Rubicon 6 towers and KEF Reference 1 monitors in a similar sized room.  I actually demo’d them side by side in my room and was able to A B them for quite awhile.  Both were extremely similar sounding and fantastic.  I wouldn’t ... 
speakers for small room

I have Volti New Rivals in the bubinga tree finish.  The build quality is off the charts.  Best sounding speakers I’ve ever had as well and I’ve owned at least a dozen.

Considering moving to separates with a tube preamp-appreciate recommendations
I run a Luxman CL-38uC tube preamp and I just love the sound.  Currently I have it going into Lux MQ-88uC tube amps in parallel and it’s my favorite sounding setup I’ve put together to date.  but I had a Michi S5 for a period of time before that. ... 
Looking for advise with selecting next integrated amp
I second the Luxman integrateds.  Any of them.  I had the 507 for a long time and was very happy with the sound plus they are beautifully built and have tone controls which I also liked.  Moved on to Luxman tube pre and tube amps.  
The difference between an Audiophile and a Stereophile?

Luxman Preamps
I just bought the Luxman CL-38uC and it’s gorgeous and it sounds amazing.  I would highly recommend.
