Denon PMA-50 Integrated Amplifier Review
Denon, the longstanding electronics firm now owned by D&M, produces products for virtually every market. They also have prided themselves on staying ahead of the curve with new technologies, designing products stuffed with features at too-good-to-be-true prices.Recently, I reviewed (and loved) the wonderful Denon HEOS distributed audio system, which was like a Sonos on steroids, and very affordable. The Denon AV Receivers are also superb, as are their line of high-end hifi components. This includes turntables, DACs, and network players. Last year I had the Denon DA-300USB DSD DAC in, and came away very impressed. Denon has again responded to the market with an affordable, multi faceted integrated amplifier. Packed with features, the new $599 PMA-50 is basically a one-box solution, and is virtually future proof. The PMA-50's amplifier section incorporates DDFA technology from CSR. Its Class D amplifier is ...

CLONES Audio 25iR Integrated Amplifier Review
CLONES Audio out Hong Kong, has enjoyed an amazing amount of awareness stateside generated in a very short period of time. This is due to positive reviews, and international distribution. On these pages I reviewed the 25p power amplifier, which I subsequently purchased and use in regular rotation with my usual stable of amps.Since that review, CLONES and its proprietor, Funjoe, have been mighty busy, bringing to market several new products, and upgrades to others. Funjoe is tireless, and his pursuit of perfection is very admirable. There have also been some logistical changes as well, with CLONES going through several distribution arrangements. Late last year, Mark Sossa, of Well Pleased AV, signed on to become to the US importer and dealer of record. Sossa is a seasoned veteran, highly knowledgeable, and very gracious. All things point to a good marriage. ...

Marantz SR7009 Home Theater Receiver Review
Marantz is on one heck of a roll. Over the past five years I have had the opportunity to evaluate a slew of their products, from reference-level hifi to entry-level home theater. Some products I liked more than others, but all offered very good performance and value. Some particular favorites were the entry-level PM/CD5005 combo, and just last month the fantastically good $799 HD-DAC1. Their flagship streamer and reference series SACD players/DSD DACs are absolutely superb. Marantz does the rare thing in today’s market, straddling the line between audiophile, two-channel products, and state of art multi-channel home theater. And they do it very well.  At all price points. Marantz sent me the new flagship SR7009 receiver, equipped with their very latest technology. Retailing for $1999, the SR7009 is a 30 Lb beast that, when removed from the box, impresses from ...

SOtM sHP-100 Headphone Amplifier & DSD DAC Review
SOtM, a Korean audiophile component manufacturer, is slowly but surely making the industry sit up and take notice. They offer a line of impressive and versatile computer audio products that compete with much more expensive solutions. The company is being very well served by their U.S. importer/dealer, Simple Designs LLC. I was so impressed with the SOtM sMS-100 Mini Server & mBPS-d2s Intelligent Battery Supply that I absolutely had to have a look at more SOtM products. The sMS-100 network streamer is among the highest value digital source components I have ever come across. At $449, it is a no brainer recommendation. The SOtM line up smartly caters to those with different needs and budgets. The flagship SOtM streamer, the sMS-1000 is a more sophisticated unit with advanced inputs and outputs, a linear power supply, and balanced analog outputs. The ...

Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amplifier & CD5005 CD Player Review
It’s no accident Marantz has established itself as the dominant player in sub-$1000 stereo components. The company has a talent for trickling down technology and performance from their reference line on a consistent basis, perhaps due to a well organized design department, or economies of scale. Either way, outside of speakers, the venerable Japanese company has the market cornered. Make no mistake; I would put Marantz’s reference line up against anybody’s, regardless of price. I found their SA-14S1 SACD Player & DSD DAC, SA-11S3 SACD Player & DAC, and NA-11S1 Network Streamer & DSD DAC to be remarkable products. Built to standard that is beyond reproach with exemplary sonics. Packing them up and sending them back to the factory was tough, and they were missed immediately. I have also reviewed several Marantz budget level components as well, including the ...
