Focusrite ISA 220

I like the array of controls on this thing a lot. The sound of the pre itself is nothing to die for but the EQs and effects are all better than using plug-ins most likely. For that reason it comes ...

PYLE PRO PT600A

The PT600A manual last page specifies the output power as 50 watts/channel. 300 watts is the maximum input power from the AC line, not the output power as implied by the web site. I don't know whether this is intentional false advertising, or just...

Epiphone [Amp Series] Valve Special

For the price, you're not going to find too many tube amps like the Epiphone Valve Special. There is always give and take however, as I don't think that this stacks up to other tube amps that I've...

Pioneer VSX 817-K

Real nuisance when you have to switch the TV input AND the receiver, to watch a DVD; and then switch them both back to watch the VCR.

This is one of the best sansui classic black beauty. I am totally impressed with the sound and planning to get an extra for spare. It has a good sound stage and sound warm and planning to recap it when I have free time. I prefer this amplifier compare...

Marantz SR 8500

Finding the audio-video receiver (AVR) that meets every requirement is a little like going to a restaurant and having to choose a combo platter from either Column A, Column B, or Column C—inevitably each mouthful ends up being a negotiated settlement...

Yamaha RX 777

I feel I must respond to the other,bizarre review of the RX77. I am using the unit now with 2 speakers and find it to be one of the best,unadorned stereo receivers around. The sound on any of my cds is full and detailed. I listen mostly to...

Budda [Superdrive Series II] 18 Combo 1x12

I think these are a tremendous value. I have sat this thing next to a TopHat Supreme 16 and a matchless spitfire. It hangs with both of them no problem. Try one of these. It's shocking how unde...

I have used this amplifier for over 20 years, driving a pair of Magnapan SMGs, and just love the sound. Although I do not have a very large room, it is big enough, and I have never needed to turn up the volume more than about half way. Beautiful, crist...
