Category Winner – Anthem AVM 20

Anthem AVM 20

With proven software and hardware upgrades working, the Anthem AVM 20 offers nearly every high-end feature found on the loftiest A/V preamps for a more affordable price.

B&K Ref 30
Another new value-priced contender that caught the attention of Brian Kahn, the B&K Ref 30 also is ready for the latest formats with 5.1 analog inputs and excellent video switching.

Krell HTS 7.1
Brian Kahn has puddles of drool permanently staining the cover of his Krell HTS 7.1 A/V preamp. It does music as well as it does home theater, which is no small feat, especially when compared to Krell electronics of the past.

Sunfire Theater Grand III
The Sunfire TGIII was a very close runner-up for category winner with the Anthem AVM 20. It may be a little lighter on features, but it makes it up as the industry standard for simplicity in set-up. Its warm sound will please music lovers who also like to watch movies.
