Krell FPB700CX

Introduction In America, we love things big. We buy big houses, big vehicles and when we eat, we "super-size" our meals. We like monster trucks and enjoy watching big athletes play in the "Super Bowl" on our big-screen TVs. Therefore it's no wonder...

Conrad-Johnson MV-60 Vacuum Tube Power Amplifier

Some of you have seen my latest reviews of this amp, where I've got the MV60 "SE" version, which is more powerful than the normal mv60. I've been using the mv60se for nearly 3 years now, and have upgraded a few things since 2008...

Acurus RL-11 Preamplifiers

Had my heart on Aragon Aurum pre amp and Aragon 8008BB amp. But my pockets weren't that deep. Turns out that Acurus is the little brother of this audio line, Mondial Designs. This is the best audio amp preamp combo for the money, build is of the best...

Denon PMA 255 UK

Owned one of these amplifiers for about 7 years. It's driven Mission 701's, Eltax Silverstone 220's, and most recently Eltax Symphony 8.3's. Very well made, fantastically reliable. Very strong sound, deep bass and well distinguished mid and treble....

Kenwood VR 8060-S

This is a good receiver for the price. All my existing components connected (even my phonograph) and there are numerous options as to how you connect each item. I've had no problems so far and am happy with this purchase.

Pioneer Elite VSX 59TXi

Granted, that price is quite high—enough, in fact, to get you a respectable preamp-processor and multichannel power amp. But, as evidenced by the entry of such high-end companies as Lexicon and Arcam into the receiver market, there's a lot of value in...

NAD C 340

I managed to obtain this from eBay for £45.00, and compared to my knackered old JVC AGX-1 from the 80's, it was incredible! The clarity and definition of the sound was awesome! I personally love the styling, it's just a big block of metal. You get the...

MBL 5011 - (Preamplifiers)

For instance, if you were to play the beautiful-sounding Deutsche Grammophon CD of the Mutter/Levine reading of Berg's Violin Concerto, you'll notice a startlingly expansive soundfield of tremendous depth-though not necessarily width, the one area in...

Vincent SV 233

If I'd handed in Vincent's Operating Instructions as an assignment, my old English teacher would have marked it ‘Needs Work.' The English is mostly fractured and the pages bore ‘corrections' in the form of poor- quality photocopies glued (though very...

Jeff Rowland Design Group Consonance Preamplifiers

I see the only other review is dated 2000 - which is a pity. So I'm writing this for those of you who are really, really doing your homework.

ME Sound ME 850 Amplifiers

I am the third owner of this wondeful amplifier. I can't vouch for its age, but according to owner no2 it is late 90s. This version is upgradable to 450,000 microfarad storage (275,000 as is). Current capability is 70amps.

Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi - (A/V Receivers)

Pioneer Elite gear gets more attainable and less "elite" with each passing year. In the days of Laserdisc players, though, the Pioneer Elite CLD-97 could run you $2,500. Thank you sir, may I have another!

Excellent product. Well made, reliable with great manufacturer back up. Lively detailed sound and relaxing to the ear for those long listening sessions late into the night. The preamplifier I used to compare the Boulder to was a Threshold FET 9E and I...

Marantz PM-82 Integrated Amplifiers

Pretty good device I would say. Precision clarity, so huge sound... One of the best amplifiers I have ever had. I have had PM80 MkII - stil having my son. But in other way, son is having most better floorstand speakers than me now .. :-)

STR - DB 798

I have been doing a market research in AV Receivers over a period of 6 months. After going through reviews and specs, i finally settled down with this receiver. While Denon, Onkyo were similar in quality, they are simply muscled out by Sony when it...

Terk FM-4000 FM Edge Amplified Indoor FM Antenna

The Terk Edge really works. It was very easy to install. I am now pulling in stations that were very difficult to hear clearly. Only one New York City station is still problematic but I rarely listen to it anyway. Give it a try.

Pioneer VSX-D811S

I'm a retro Pioneer collector. I like the look and sound of older Pioneer stereos, especially the 'silver-faced' VSX-series receivers. The silver-faced receivers were made in the early 2000's, then Pioneer changed to producing 'black-faced' receivers....
