IMO, B&W's are on the bright side. What is your budget and what features do you need? Did you ever think about adding tubes into the mix? I don't think bi-amping would solve the problem.
$1000 max for budget. Need DAC w/ optical, coax, USB and preferably WiFi; analog inputs for SACD, FM tuner, etc. Something at least 150WPC at 4 ohms. I just read up on the NAD C368 & C388, and the latter could work, but stretches the budget unless I can find one used.
You might want to look at the review of the Classe Sigma 2200i in the current issue of Stereophile, beginning on page 169, in which Tom Norton compares the sound of the 2200i with that of his Proceed Amp 5. He preferred the sound with his combination of a Marantz AV8802a and Amp 5.
