While Ken Kessler can't resist taking a pot shot at Apple's industrial design (possibly the most popular ID of any company making any product in the world) en route to reviewing this uber-esoteric Fase Nimis integrated power amp.

While the Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista M3 integrated amp may not come from the Motorsport Division of BMW it does have that solid build quality and is arguably harder to come by than an M3 with four wheels. Ken Kessler takes this integrated amp for a spin in this full review. Read More

Normally eight watts per channel scares the hell out of Ken Kessler but it didn't take him long to fall in love with the Loth-X JI-300 tube power amps. Compared to a dinner at Gordon Ramsay's place - see if this exotic tube amp lives up to the Petrus comparisons in this review. Read More

WAVAC could very well be called "WAY BACK" by its industrial design. Packing 15 whole watts of tubey power - this amp is just what the audiophiles in Asia long for. Is this the right audiophile amp for you? Ken Kessler takes a long look here. Read More

In the mood for some good car analogies and Anglo-self-loathing - then I have the review for you. Amazingly, Ken Kessler ends up loving this esoteric amp. Who could have guessed it from the introduction but you never know. Read More
