Krell FPB 700cx Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction In America, we love things big. We buy big houses, big vehicles and when we eat, we “super-size” our meals. We like monster trucks and enjoy watching big athletes play in the “Super Bowl” on our big-screen TVs. Therefore it’s no wonder that there is a market for huge audio amplifiers. For over 20 years, Krell Industries has been famous for making some of the biggest, baddest and most powerful amplifiers in the world. The Krell FPB (Full Power Balanced) 700cx is Krell’s latest top-of-the-line amplifier in the FPB stereo amplifier line-up. The amplifier retails for $14,000 and is rated at 700 watts per channel into eight ohms, 1400 watts into four ohms and a whopping 2800 watts into two ohms. Having recently reviewed the Krell FPB 400cx, I was reminded of the Krell’s top build quality. Weighing in at 180 pounds and measuring 19 inches wide, 10.3 inches tall and 25.5 inches deep, makes ...

Lexicon LX-7 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Not surprisingly, multi-channel systems are growing in popularity, especially with surround sound cinema and multi-channel music becoming more mainstream. In this era of high-resolution multi-channel media, each component must be capable of extracting all that these new formats deliver. The synergistic match between the electronic components and selected loudspeakers is no longer merely a desirable facet, but a prerequisite for any true reference-quality playback system. Lexicon, a Harman Specialty Group company, is fully aware of this, and has released the LX-7 seven-channel amplifier ($5,995.00), which is designed to excel with all types of media. Lexicon has devoted substantial engineering resources and technology to design products, such as their new series of processors, amplifiers, and a universal disc player, all of which have been designed to meet the expectations of today’s more demanding and sophisticated consumer. Intended to mate optimally with their MC-12 and MC-8 Digital Controllers, the LX-7 is equally capable of complementing any other manufacturers’ ...

Anthem PVA 2 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Over the past couple of years, Anthem has risen from the shadows of Sonic Frontiers, its former big brother, to become a formidable brand for value conscious AV consumers. The PVA 2 is the latest in Anthem’s quest to provide high-performing, high-value electronics at a price point that the average person can afford. The PVA 2 is a 125-watts per channel, no-frills stereo amplifier that sells for $649. The PVA 2 measures 17.25 inches wide, is five-and-one-quarter inches tall, 11 inches deep and weighs 26 pounds. The PVA 2, like the rest of Anthem’s current line, features clean, unpretentious styling. The attractive yet simple front panel is manufactured from three-eighths of an inch thick, brushed aluminum, available in either silver or black. The face of the PVA 2 is decisively sparse, with nothing more than a logo, a power light and a button to power the amp. The remaining surfaces of the amplifier feature a ...

Jolida JD-202A Integrated Amplifier
Introduction The Jolida JD-202A Level 1 Modification amplifier will most certainly capture the attention of those enthusiasts looking for performance tube gear that doesn’t require a armored truck delivery of funds to make it affordable. The modified JD-202A integrated amplifier is the latest product incarnation from high-end audio veteran Walter Liederman (co-founder of Hi-Fi Buys). Under his new company moniker “Underwood HiFi,” (formerly the Grahm Company) Liederman buys the stock JD-202A and has it modified at the Parts Connexion. This product takes its place beside other Liederman modified gems from Jolida and Shanling in the Underwood HiFi line. The amplifier in question starts life as a standard $750 Jolida JD-202A, then is shipped to The Parts Connexion, where it is extensively modified with tubes and components designed to substantially increase the performance of the product, all without dramatically increasing the price. The Jolida JD-202A with Level 1 mods is a 40-watt-per-channel stereo integrated amplifier that measures 12.5 inches ...

Krell FPB 400cx Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Movie buffs may remember the name Krell from the movie "Forbidden Planet," where the Krell were the most powerful race of an alien civilization. Krell Industries, manufacturer of some the world’s most exotic AV equipment, named its company after this superior species. Like Morbius, another “Forbidden Planet” character who sat in front of the Krell’s computer terminal trying to understand their science, I sit in front of Krell’s amplifier, learning about its science. The amplifier I’m talking about is the Krell FPB (Full Power Balanced) 400cx, Krell’s latest “mid-priced” offering in the FPB stereo amplifier line-up, priced at $10,500. The 400cx is rated at 400 watts per channel into eight ohms, 800 watts in four ohms and 1600 watts into two ohms. Upon unboxing the Krell FPB 400cx, I was immediately struck by its build quality. Weighing in at 110 pounds and measuring 19 inches wide, 10.3 inches tall and 19.7 inches deep, this ...
