NAD 214

I've been using the NAD 214's, in single stereo and bridged mono for almost 20 years now, and I must say this is one of the best sounding power amplifiers out there, and even better if you use 2 bridged. This amp has PRAT galore. Smooth and never...

RME Audio QuadMic

For the price, the RME Audio QuadMic is a great deal. While the preamps don't sound all that much better than those you'd find on most audio interfaces, keep in mind that they are really designed ...

NAD 314

What can I say? Excellent Transients across the board going from a quiet passage to crescendo in milliseconds! What I love about NAD as designers is despite the multitude of models they produce, They all center around current delivery.

AMC AV81

Sounds better than the pro-7. Sounds real nice with the 2445. Plenty of gain. This is the c model not dd. Logitech harmony works with it. Was looking for low noise. I think I found it. Punchy, dynamic bass.
