Classe CP-500 Preamplifiers

I've gone through 9 preamps in the last 5 years. The one that lasted the longest was one of the cheapest, a used Arcam c31. Quite simply, it did the most right while doing the least wrong. Others had been more dynamic, more balsy, warmer, but the Arcam...

Jolida FX10

I have heard quite a few tube amps over the years-- VTL, Cary, VAC to name a few. My favorite was a VAC Avatar integrated that sounded magical driving a pair of B&W speakers. Today, with a family, I cannot afford high-end audio gear. I also have a two...

Brent Averill 1272

This is going to be an expensive piece of gear regardless, so that must be established first. Realistically, there is no need for anybody but a studio owner to own this gear, or at least somebody w...

Lector Audio ZOE

To me, the defining sonic trait of the Lector Zoe is its sparkling highs. The crash of cymbals is bold, even real. I find this preamplifier neutral overall, with the exception of a hint of warmth and forwardness in the mid-range, which gives the music...

Fender Super Amp

This is a really great amp. Simple, no frills, no extra features, just solid tone all around. I'd say this is expensive enough that it's probably not worth it unless you either own a studio, or are...

This receiver has the capability of outputting stereo (and 6-channel multi-stereo). "virtual" surround if you are into that. It has video inputs and outputs. This is a 6.1 surround receiver (the 6th channel has two outputs so it's like 7.1...unless you...

PMA S-1 is one of the best integrated Amp that Denon made. It easily drives low efficiency speakers with clear background and dynamic punch when you need it to rocks. When playing classics it is a typical hi-end Japanese Amp with finer texature than...
