Marantz AV8802

The Marantz AV8802 is a great benchmark for a flagship A/V preamp/processor. It is loaded with state-of-the-art functionality and yet the AV8802 is incredibly easy to use and configure. The inclusion of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Surround is a given in the...

Rotel RB-1092

Rotel isn't the only amp company to use B&O's ICE amp chips (think: NuForce, Bel Canto and Wyred For Sound) but they bring a long lineage of audiophile history in taking a bright idea and making it sound really, really good. Read the Ken Kessler review...

McIntosh MHA100

Having now had this headphone amp for 4 months or so, I thought I'd write a quick review. Just to emphasise these are only what I found, your own findings may be totally different. Within the last year I have had a Hugo and Naim V1 both of which were...

SWR Headlite

Just picked this amp up a week ago but I'm very impressed. The only negative I have about it is that the knob positions are hard to see with the small dots but I marked them bigger with a felt pen. The tone is very close to any swr I have tried except...

NAD T 758

The unit performs very well - great sound, etc - so deserves 4 or 4 1/2 stars, but a few minor hardware items (connectors) did not function well and the manual is less-than-clear, so I contacted NAD service and so far, it gets 2 stars at best.

OSD Audio MONO70-VC Mono Volume Control (White)

Great 70 volt volume control. Nice looking and was a cinch to install. I have used several makes over the years and this one is great. No markings for volume level but I didn't need that.

Ortofon GT Single Pack - 1 x DJ Cartridge fitted with stylus

Have been using this cart for a few months now and have fussed with every variable from VTF, VTA and antiskate but cannot find a combination that opens up the sound of the cartridge. Tracking weight from 2.0 through 3.5 and I can't dial out the...

TC Electronic G-Major 2

The only reason I sold this is because I had trouble programming the midi controller I bought. I didn't have the correct hardware, and live this unit is borderline useless without a controller. If ...

Gretsch G5222 Electromatic Amp

This tone is pretty cool small box amp tone. If you are in need or a good practice amp then this might be your ticket. If you want to chase after the Fender Champ tone for about $800 less then this...

Orange [Terror Series] Tiny Terror Combo TT15C

At new these amps come in at around $860, which may be a bit high for some people with the simplicity of this amp but its not made in China which is a plus. So you will pay a bit extra but you know...

Crate GFX-212

It was a good first live amp and I did keep it for a few years until I eventually sold it. It never went down on me and for the price was the best and loudest I could afford at the time. I play...

Livio Radio

Overall, I love the Livio Radio. It is a simple device that looks good in just about any room and pumps out my Pandora stations. I don’t need any fancy wires, and I don’t have to mess with using my iPhone to output music (Since all but one of my docks...

Russound MCA-C5

I have had the MCA-C5 for a year and couldn't be happier with it. I previously had a Control4 system that was already installed in the house I bought. The Control4 eco-system is awful: expensive service contracts, poorly written software, buggy and...

NAD 7240

I purchased one of these new around 1985 or so and happily used it driving a set of DCM TF 500 speakers for the next 14 years or so. The receiver sounds much more powerful than the 40 watt rating would lead you to believe I ended up replacing it with a...

Fender Deluxe 90 DSP

Local guitar store....I told them musiciansfriend.com had it for $400 w/ no shipping and they cut their price to $410.An AMAZING clean channel (fender's are renowned for this). Also, because mine is the new DSP model, it has great effects. It is also...

Mistral MT34 tube valve 2x 35w amplifier

I have to disagree with the above reviewer on this product. It LOOKS very good but the sound was totally gutless and lacked drive through my Wharfedale Airedale SP speakers. They maybe 86db (not efficient?) but a TINY Class D amp from China and an old...

This is a superb amplifier and one I strongly recommend to anyone looking for a modern, good value valve alternative to a sub £500 integrated amplifier. Before the detail here is some context. I have a long history of choosing valve amplifiers over...
