Krell F.B.I. (Fully Balanced Integrated) Integrated Amplifier
Introduction The Fully Balanced Integrated Amplifier or F.B.I. is Krell’s no-holds-barred solution to an integrated two-channel audio system. Integrated amplifiers are often considered to be more or less lifestyle pieces. Not so with the 104-pound FBI. This massive $16,500 integrated amplifier started life as a separate amplifier/preamplifier combination. During the design process, it became apparent that the combining the two pieces would create a synergy that was not likely to be achieved when they operated separately. Krell has long been known for their large, high-power amplifiers, capable of providing some of the industry’s most powerful and detailed bass. The amplifier portion of the FBI is comprised of the popular FPB 300cx stereo amplifier. The FPB 300cx is part of the Full Powered Balance (FPB) series of amplifiers, which consists of completely discrete, fully balanced, dual differential single-channel and stereo amplifiers. These amplifiers, as well as the FBI, feature a Class A output, which is arguably the most ...

Outlaw Audio Model 7200 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Earlier this year, I raved about the Outlaw 970 processor and matching 7075 multi-channel amplifier. Together, the 970 and 7075 not only redefined bang-for-your-buck performance, they also set a benchmark in its price class by which all other products, both separates and receivers, will be judged. I liked the combo so much that I kept them. Beyond the sonic attributes of the subject matter, that review was special to me because it was my first introduction to Outlaw Audio. An introduction, I must say, that has been both eye-opening and frustrating. I say frustrating, because once you’ve crossed over and become an Outlaw yourself, it’s exceedingly tough to justify anything else. The only saving grace for me is that Outlaw doesn’t make speakers (with the exception of their subwoofers) or source components. Sure, I’ve heard a barrage of products that do one thing or another that the Outlaws cannot, but at the end of ...

Parasound A 52 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Ahh, power amplifiers. Aside from loudspeakers, they are often the most touted products in the consumer electronics industry, and for good reason. Without them, there would be no music. They are charged with a great deal of responsibility and, while they may not look as sexy as some of their counterparts, they are without a doubt the backbone of every system. So, when a new amp is released, especially by a company as reputable as Parasound, one has reason to get excited. Officially launched in 2003, Parasound’s Halo line of components were specifically designed to bridge, or at least blur, the gap between ultra-performance and budget-conscious components. Solid performance at a reasonable price has always been Parasound’s bread and butter, so it was a bit of a gamble when they set out to challenge some of the industry’s most notable, and expensive, players. With the exception of maybe a handful of other companies, like ...

Halcro MC50 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction The Halcro brand name is famed in the world of audiophiles, most notably for offering amplifiers that have been lauded as “the best” by many in the know. In an effort to move past the constantly shrinking two-channel audiophile world, Halcro has expanded their product offerings to include a home theater line, consisting of multi-channel amplifiers and a preamplifier-processor (review pending). The amplifier line consists of two-, three-, five- and seven-channel units. The MC50 five-channel unit which retails for $5,990 is the one we’re reviewing here. Halcro’s parent company Minelab makes technologically advanced metal detectors and land mine scanning equipment. In the security industry, it is imperative that every product be designed and built to astronomical standards, as lives are literally on the line. Without question, Halcro has adopted these same high standards for their audio gear. The build quality of the MC50 is spectacular, even in comparison to the best that more established audio companies ...

Rotel RMB-1077 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Rotel’s illustrious history was started in Japan over 40 years ago by a family whose obsession with music inspired them to manufacture truly high fidelity stereo components of their own unique design. Today, Rotel engineers are known for their tendency to select only the finest capacitors, resistors and other parts from all around the globe. The goal of these searches for the best audio components is to create audio equipment that is musical and reliable, yet affordable. If a component has not met the engineer’s desired standards, Rotel is not afraid to make the actual part itself. This was the case for Rotel’s decision to make its own toroidal transformers. One of Rotel’s latest contributions to the home theater market is the RMB-1077 a seven-channel amplifier that retails for $2,500. Now, you ask, what is so great about this amplifier? Amplifiers have been around for years and much of the technology has not changed significantly. ...
