Onkyo TX SR603X

I've been using this for about 4 years now and I'm extremely pleased with it's performance. I would highly recommend this receiver if you have several components and are looking for a good all around unit.

McIntosh MC2105 - (Amplifiers)

In 1976 I acquired a used 2105 and C-28 for $950.00 plus tax from a small shop in Indianapolis. A 2105 on eBay in 2014 Dec reveals typical issues with vintage amps: "it blew a resistor a day later. I took the stereo to a repair shop and they said it...

Nakamichi RE 10

I have several other high-end amplifiers. I only bought this amplifier to check why Nakamichi is so much famous for its sound quality. And after using it for some time I find out that although the sound of this amplifier is somewhat colored ( which is...

Luxman R117 - (Receivers)

I just received my Luxman R-117 back from an authorized luxman repair shop in Connecticut. It needed a left channel and cost me $350 including shipping to repair it. I've been without it for almost two years as high-end shops in the area said it was...

Sonic Frontiers SFL-1 - (Preamplifiers)

I purchased the unit in 2004 through audiogon and it has been reliably performing in my dedicated 2-channel ever since. It is very neutral and not imposing at all. It doesn't have the deep warmth you might find in other gear like AR, which isn't always...

Yamaha DSP-Z9

An obvious choice for a high-end home theatre experience. THX Ultra 2 certified, it has an impressive output of 7x300 watts plus 2x90 watts for the extra front effect channels. A Faroudja scaler provides the best picture from all video sources. The smart

Kenwood KMX 1000

I bought this used and at a very reasonable price. When I plugged it in and the music came on, first thing I noticed was that the solid images it created, vocals, both lead and backing, sound fantastic.

McIntosh MR67

Mcintosh mr65b and mr55a. I paid around $400.00 for the mr65b and $350.00 for the mr55a. The mr65b sounds very lush and rich and looks new, really a very pretty radio. After it plays for about 15 minutes I sometime have to slightly retune some...

AudioSource Amp Three Amplifiers

This is an excellent amp for the money. I purchased mine used on Ebay for about $100 and couldn't be happier with the sound quality. I have several amps including a $1200 Crown, NAD, Altec Lansing along with some other relatively expensive high end...

Accuphase E-210 Integrated Amplifiers

I run the E-210 with my Quad ESL 63's, and sometimes my LS3/5a's. It's probably the most musical integrated amp i have heard in this price range, it just plays music and that's it. For the prices these go for now days i dont really know what else could...

Arcam A65

I am currently using the Arcam A65+ in a passive bi-amp configuration with a Rotel RB990BX powering the low frequencies. I wasn't sure, without an active crossover if it would make a big difference. Well, I will be satisfied for at least a couple years...

Accuphase E 206

By the time I first looked at this amp, I've walked a long road on my search of the best amp. It all started in November 2012 when I changed my good old Kenwood receiver for a used Rotel RA-972 back from the nineties. It simply blew Kenwood away. Then...

Sony STR-DE 495

Still about for just over 100 if you can find one! Believe me, it's MORE than powerful enough for an average-sized room. And it's okay with music too.

Sony STR DE135

If all you need is a great stereo receiver - and NO 5.1 or DOLBY surround - then this is the unit for you. Simple to install and operate. Very clean sound and plenty of power. One or two more inputs wounld't hurt, but overall you can't beat the deal on...

You can use the Chieftain for anything. It has a voicing that will sit in any style. I can't explain it really. It's hard to dial in a bad sound. I can play a blues gig with this and turn aroun...
