Aaron Audio No.1.a Integrated Amplifier Review
I don't get to travel as much as I'd like to in the traditional sense, but every piece of audio equipment I review takes me on a journey of sorts. Whether it's embarking on a symbolic trip overseas to the component's origin or into the rarefied air of gear whose price exceeds my bankroll, the paths are always interesting and often enlightening. And sometimes they are flat out surprising. At the end of J.R.R. Tolkien's “The Fellowship Of The Ring,” hobbit hero Frodo Baggins finds life in his old homeland, The Shire, no longer possible. His quest to save Middle Earth from the dark lord, Sauron, has exposed him to things beyond his imagination and broken his innocence. Too many things have happened, and he no longer can dwell in the idyllic yet naïve world of his kin. Finally, Frodo ...

Audioengine N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier Review
One discussion topic I constantly see on Audio forums and chat rooms is the “second system.” Most of us dream of having at least one room in the home/apartment that can serve as a primary listening and/or home theater room. But bringing a functional system into any room while maintaining feng shui can be  challenging. It can be doubly challenging for a second system. When it comes down to it, most of us are willing to sacrifice some performance for convenience; after all, who wants a 60-pound amp sitting on the dresser, no matter how great the sound? Audioengine's latest release, the N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier makes such sacrifices a lot easier. This 22-watt unit can serve proudly in any second system, even as “the” system if space dictates. Quick to SetupLike every Audioengine product I've tested, the N22 is ...

McIntosh MC302 Stereo Amplifier Preview
McIntosh has announced two brand new Stereo Amplifiers featuring the latest advancements in both electronic component and material design to delivery accuracy, warmth, and emotional impact in music reproduction.  The lesser expensive MC302 was designed to be paired with McIntosh's recently announced C48 Stereo Control Unit.  McIntosh claims the 300 watt-per-channel MC302 is the most advanced amplifier they've ever produced at this power level.  The higher power allows each connected loudspeaker to reach its full audio potential.  Helping ensure high-quality music reproduction are all new patent-spending speaker wire binding posts.Designed to be durable like all their long-lasting products, the MC302 from McIntosh is able to deliver full rated power to speakers of all shapes and sizes.  Further, the MC302 is engineered to run "cool" in normal use without an extraneous noise from the connected chassis or speakers.  This unit uses ...

Pathos Logos Integrated Amplifier Review
Pathos is an audio company headquartered in northern Italy, in the city of Vicenza. It so happens the region is a hotbed for fashion and jewelry, and Pathos accurately describes its wares as “hi-fi jewelry – small monuments.” When I spoke with John Bevier of Audio Plus Services, the North American distributor of Pathos and other high-end brands, he told me a little about Pathos' history. The company was started by three Italian gents - Gaetano Zanini, Gianni Borinato and Paul Andriolo. The trio shared a passion for audio and used their collective talents to design a new amplifier circuit, which led to the creation of Pathos' first amplifier, the T.T. This amp incorporated Pathos' own INPOL Class A feedback-free circuitry, a mix of tube and solid state that didn't manipulate the audio signal. The result was the mellowness and ...

Manley Neo-Classic SE/PP 300B Monoblock Amplifier Review
In the past year I have become a big fan of gear produced by Manley Labs, out of Chino, CA. I have reviewed the Neo-Classic 300B Preamplifier, the MAHI® EL84-based monoblocks, and the Snapper® 6CA7-based monoblock amplifiers. Each component was off the charts impressive in sound quality, build detail, value, and overall user experience. Prior to first hand experience, I had only heard about Manley's reputation of building great components, excellent customer service and support, and overall buyer satisfaction. It all turned out to be true. I also have become a big believer in Manley's no-nonsense, light hearted attitude, evident in their manuals and on their website.I now have the opportunity to evaluate the Neo-Classic SE/PP 300B tubed monoblock amplifiers, rated at 11W per channel in Single Ended mode and 24W per channel in Push-Pull mode. It has been a ...
