Pre and Power or Integrated?

Hi all, Im thinking of getting more power . My question is do i stick with my Quad 34 pre and get a Quad 606 power amp or try and find a good intergrated of at least 100w per channel? Would be nice to have one amp instead of 2, but will i find an integrated for about £600 that would fit the bill? Cheers.

The 606 and 909 are nice amps. You could find a used integrated in that price range, it really comes down to personal taste.

I’m not up in British pricing anymore, but will £600 get you something like the divine sounding Exposure 3010S2 on the used market?

Which I think might sound better than using the 33 preamp, if my experience with a Quad 44 is anything to go by. I like Quad's amps better than I like their preamps. They're getting up in age, though, so perhaps my 44 was just really really out of spec.
 
If it were my choice, I would save a bit more then look around for a couple a good second hand mono-blocks and a good pre amp.
