halco-mc70.jpgIn their laid-back, oaky-Chardonnay-in-their-hand, Australian way of looking at the world of audiophile electronics, the executives at Halcro never, ever get sick of talking about the famous review of their reference power amplifier that once called it, "The Best Amplifier In the World." While you need to be at least a fractional owner of a Gulfstream G450 and sporting an American Express Centurion (black) card to even consider their big-boy audiophile monoblock amplifiers, surround sound and home theater enthusiasts have a much more reasonable yet equally lust-worthy amplifier option from Halcro, the M70.

The Halcro M70 is a seven-channel, one-chassis 58-pound power amplifier that looks like the company hired Giorgio Armani to do the industrial design. This 350-watts-per-channel amplifier comes loaded with enough power to drive even the most demanding audiophile speakers with the lowest of efficiencies and/or oddball impedances. If you have a Halcro MC70, you are set, no matter what type of speakers you would like to drive to heavenly levels. The sound of a Halcro MC 70 has that airy high end that you expect from a topnotch solid state amp that also mildly hints at the warmth of tubes in the highs and mids, yet unlike a tube amp, a Halcro MC70 has the low-end spank to light up Dark Side of the Moon on 5.1 SACD or drop some serious U-571 depth charges from Blu-ray. At $7,000, Halcro isn't suggesting that you have to make sacrifices. They are offering you everything that an audiophile amp has to offer across seven channels of Australian-made power.
