Arcam Alpha 8R

Amazing sound quality! These amps sell used nowadays for around 250 Euro, which is very little money for such a great sound. The Alpha 8 replaced my Alpha 7 and made clear audible difference for the better. For those out in the market now for an Arcam...

Proton D940 Receivers

I was a freshman in college in 1986 looking at receivers in a Crutchfield catalog when I came upon a full page devoted to the Peroton D940. It said "this is absolutely the best sounding reciever we sell". That was enough for me so I ordered it along...

ROTEL RC-1090 Preamplifiers

I believe the RC-1090 when coupled with the RB 1090 represents the best price point. I tried the RC 1080 and it is no comparison. Also tried a number of other products and for the price nothing will compare to it.

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...

Yamaha DSPA 1000

I own a CA1000 for one year no. I also owned a CA800 which was for about 5 years my main amplifier in use. These Yamaha's are for me without doubt belonging to the best class A amps I have ever heard. I was able to compare them with a Quad 303 / Quad...

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...

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...

McIntosh MC162 Amplifiers

I farted in a bucket. My phone was in the bucket. I recorded the fart on my phone. I played the fart back with this amplifier and it sounded so natural. You could hear the hollow sound of the bucket and everything. So I am very happy with this...

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...

Denon AVR-95 A/V Receivers

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.

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...
