Naim NAP-135 Amplifiers

I have owned several pairs of Naim NAP 135's over the years. All have been of the chrome bumper series which were manufactured from about 1984 to 1989. The olive facia 135's were manufacturered for several years after this, until Naim chose to change...

Denon DRA 455

I bought this receiver about five years ago for about £400, and have found it to be reliable and to produce very good sound. It's been used and abused at parties, had an extra pair of speakers connected to it, played sound from laptops when watching...

McIntosh C40 Preamplifiers

Basically got the C40 for the 5-band equalizer because I have some CDs that are very badly mastered that I wanted to be able to correct (Throwing Muses' "The Real Ramona" for instance is recorded incredibly hot--it takes huge bass boosts and huge...

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...

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...

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!

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.
