Crown CTS600

First of all the MSRP for this is $1200. I paid $475 CAD for it used and I think that it was the best bargain I've ever had in audio.

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.

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....

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...

The HK 144 receiver has excellent sound with tight natural bass. I have been an audiophile for over 30 years and this receiver is among the best I've owned. The functions are user friendly and it has a look of understated quality. A great heart to a...

Sony STR DG810

The Sony STR-DG810 has three HDMI inputs, 110 watts per each of its 6 channels, and the ability to decode all audio formats except the new HD ones and that makes this receiver worth checking out.

Naim Audio NAC 122X

And that's when I need to remind myself that there are plenty of integrated amplifiers on the market that cost a lot more than these Naim separates do (including the company's just released $4950 SUPERNAIT). And that my reference electronics over the...

8210 MPA Amplifier

This does the job well and provides protection from acoustic shock. The switches on the front allow you to switch between headset and phone (handy if the calls aren't too frequent - so you can have it set to phone to hear it ringing and then flick it...

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...
