Marantz was a dominant force in the high-end space all throughout the golden age of two-channel playback though in recent years they've become a dominant force among the budget home theater set. Not anymore, for with the release of their new reference line and products such as the SC-7S1 and MA-9S1 reviewed here... Read More

For some people - they just done need a Lamborghini Murcielago which is why there is a Gallardo. This 750 watt-per-channel amp may not be the 1000 Watt (yes, a Kilo-watt) monster but for the love of God it is a LOT of power. If your speakers can't run on this sweet injection of power then they might need to go on the junk heap. Read More

Not a whole lot to say about Quad that hasn't already been said-they're good at what they do and have a hugely loyal fan base reticent of Apple. Whether you harbor feelings for their speakers or their electronics one thing remains the same, once you hear a Quad system it's hard to listen to anything else. Read More

Multi-chassis audiophile grade tube amps is enough sexy talk to get anybody who loves audio a little aroused. Primaluna is a bit of a sleeper in the United States but for those who don't know - take the time to learn as they are right up there with the likes of ARC, McIntosh and VTL but at a little less cost.

The best way to get into the ultra-high-end world of Krell gear is to start with one of their beefy integrated amps. The Krell KAV-400XI is just what the doctor ordered for many of not close to all audiophile applications not needing huge monoblock amps. Read the full Brian Kahn review here. Read More

Audio Research, by name, suggests reference-level audio performance but even the Minnesota-based company "guilds the lily" as Mario Batali says with their top of the line products. With the sweetest tube sound money can buy - ARC offers a musicality that many say just can't be had from solid state electronics. Learn more about the ARC REF 110 amps here. Read More
