(...) If you are looking for an "all-in-one" unit look no further. Make no mistake, the sound and power from this receiver will bring new life into your speakers. The volume control appears a little off because you have to crank it up to hear it at an...

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...

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...

Densen DM 20

Gee nice amp. Plugged it in and woke up after 57 years sleep. It's that good I am hearing favourite CDs for the first time - great. I could wax on about the sound but I have found most reviews fail when trying to verbalise what something sounds like....

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.

Music Hall Mm/Mc Phono Preamp

This is a decent pre amp. It is reasonably quiet and free from distortion, and is a good option if you need to switch between mc and mm cartridges.

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...

The M51 sounds sensational. In fact, we’d go further than that by saying it’s one of the best NAD separates we’ve heard in recent memory.

I recently moved into temporary rented accommodation, and wanted a quality but inexpensive amplifier for my hifi there. At home I have the Cambridge Audio A5 amplifier, so I am familiar with Cambridge products and thus chose to go with the cheapest...

Samson S-Phone

What you see is NOT what you get. Controls are different. No "balance controls" (which is what I was specifically looking for). The same controls are there, but labeled differently. Balance is "pan". Treble and bass are "HF" and "LF". Evaluating sound...

Kenwood KR-9600 Receivers

I got my Kenwood KR-9600 in late 1976 along with my ESS AMT-1b's and what an amazing amp it was, I used to plug my bass into it and practice (that's how I discovered it's clipping protection!), and my room mate used it to annoy neighbors 12 houses away...

D-link Boxee Box Dsm-380 Wireless Hd Media Player

Great little box, does many things right which most reviews will talk about so I shall come out with a few negatives.Slight vibration noise from the fan, pressing down on the plastic around the SD card slot shows the culprit.Not all the apps work and...

Gefen EXT-HDMI1.3-141SBP

The Gefen HDMI v1.3 CAT-5/6 ELR Future Proof Extender can't be called HDMI 1.4 compatible, allowing Ethernet support and the return audio channel functionality. But it is. Trust us.

Denon AVR 987

I was very happy with this receiver until it came time to upgrade my speakers and I pulled out my old Denon 2-channel receiver to do some testing. I was blown away by how good my new speakers sounded when hooked up to my old receiver and I was quite...
