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...

Denon AVR-95 - (A/V Receivers)

i LOVE THIS UNIT THE ONLY DOWNSIDE I HAVE HEARD OR EXPERIENCED IS THE NEED TO ENSURE ADEQUATE VENTILATION TO PREVENT OVERHEATING AS THE AMPLIFIER SECTION PRODUCES EXTREME HEAT AS LONG AS VENTILATION IS PROVIDED THE UNIT IS BULLET PROOF I HAVE OWNED...

Rotel RB 991

This amp does exactly what I expected. I have switched away from Adcom amps to Rotel a while back. Innocently I started with an RB 981. This is a great amp and more powerful than the specs would suggest. I liked the sound and wanted more of th same. A...

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.

Marantz 2230

My old Carver integrated amp finally kicked the bucket, so I took it to the local charming/eccentric electronics fix-it joint. I wanted to try an old analog tuner, so he practically gave me an ancient Kenwood receiver with dead pre-amp and ...

Matchless CH-212 Chieftain

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...

Tube-Tech MP 1A

I've really got no complaints about the Tube-Tech MP 1A, as these preamps sound phenomenal. Of course they're going to cost you a ton of cash, but for a professional studio looking to get an amazi...

Pro-Ject Phono Box Design Stadio Fono MM / MC Colore Argento

This far outshines the inbuilt phono stage in my Naim Nait (integrated amplifier) - providing a clarity, separation and liveliness previously unattainable by plugging my deck (Rega3 with Denon DL110) directly in to the amp. Audio quality rivals or...

BEL 1001 MKIII A Amplifiers

Op amp rolling: I had a BEL 1001 Mk IIIa for many years. Before this I used to own a Mk I. I finally got the urge to do some op amp rolling for the Mk IIIa. The BEL uses two dual op amps. I found the following combinations sound the best: first stage...

Teac AX 1000

The new distinction line from Teac has had little notice from the audiophile community and this is a shame since I think they deserve a closer look? The specification on paper is not amazing. However , when you open the box and take out the unit you...

Rotel RX 950AX

My main system is single ended vacuum tube with nice horn speakers, just for a frame of reference. I bought this unit non-working for very cheap. After reading the great reviews, I figured it was worth a gamble. It turned out to be a relay.

Sansui 9090DB - (Receivers)

This thread clearly has a lot of very good ears and refined grey matter. I purchased my 9090DB in 1978 when I was attending General Motors Institute. Paired it with a Nakamichi cassette deck (sounded good, but unreliable), an Onkyo turntable (still...
