Music Envoy Preamplifier

This is a great pre-amp. I use it with a Canary Audio CA-301 MKII. I use two Mullard cyroed 12AT7 CV4024 and two Telefunken 12AX7 ECC83 tubes. Best that I have found doing tube rolling, and found another user who ended up with the same conclusion.

Xindak V15

Most Canadian audio enthusiasts aren't familiar with the Xindak brand, at least not yet. But Xindak isn't new at all to the audio business. The company was established in China more than 20 years ago and has since grown to become one of the largest...

Pioneer VSX-1017

Although the GUI interface is perhaps overly complex, perseverance is rewarded many times over with this high-value AVR. Hunt one down for an audition

Rotel RB-1091

But perhaps the music that really got me was Louis Armstrong's Satch Plays Fats [Sony SACD]. Armstrong's work after his legendary performances with the Hot 5 and Hot 7 is, at best, uneven, but this 1955 tribute to Fats Waller ranks among his greatest....

NAD Masters Series M3

But the M3 is ultimately an amplifier of subtleties. "The Briar and the Rose," a recording on Holly Cole's Temptation [Alert Records], begins with a small brass ensemble (including tuba) that through lesser gear can sound like an undifferentiated mash...

Arcam AVP700 Preamp Processor

A few years and a publication ago, I reviewed Arcam's FMJ AV8 controller and was frankly bowled over. At $5k I thought the AV8's detailed and dynamic sound made more expensive controllers a much harder bargain than before, and I recommended and...

Adcom GFA 6006

I bounce between having separates and integrated receivers. I've owned amps from Onkyo, Carver, Sunfire, Harman Kardon (and Citation), Audiosource, and pre-amps/receivers from Onkyo, HK, and Carver. I've kinda shied away from Adcom in my critical...

DN A7100

For the price I don't think this can be beat. I prefer it to any AVR I've ever had and that includes Sunfire TGIII, Lexicon MC-1 & MC-4, Aragon Soundstage, Enlightened Audio Encore, Integra Research RDC7. No receiver I've tried comes close. Would...

Audiolab 8000P

My verdict then, is that these units would do wonders for a system with a dark, veiled, or slow character. If your source and speakers already strike with laser-like precision, perhaps the Q/P pairing would be a little too much of a good thing. Then...

Lyngdorf SDAI 2175

If the SDAI-2175 power amplifier has flaws, they were invisible in my system.  Every other amplifier I have had sounded like "something", while this one simply does not.  This product has no sound characteristics of its own, and this is a remarkable...
