Sunfire Cinema Grand Series II Architectural Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Bob Carver is back with a new version of his most beefy home theater amp, the Sunfire Cinema Grand Series II. There are now two different ways you can order up this 425-watt-times-five-channel powerhouse – as a 19-inch “Standard” unit or a 17-inch “Architectural” version. The Architectural version is pretty much the same internally as the Series II standard unit, except for the fact that it is slender enough to fit into an equipment rack. In the golden age of audio, no respectable audiophile would think of hiding his power amp. Power amps were presented in full glory, often on a polished chunk of granite, on the floor of your listing room directly between your most lust-worthy two speakers. Things are different now. Movie and music enthusiasts (and wives) require their gear to be visually stealthy and most of their equipment to be rack-mounted neatly in a custom cabinet. For those who demand the ...

Myryad Z140 Integrated Amplifier
Introduction The Z110 CD Player and Z140 Integrated Amplifier are part of the new Z-Series, the latest line from the venerable British electronics company, Myryad.

Both the Z110 CD Player ($849) and the Z140 Integrated Amplifier ($895) feature attractive silver faceplates that feature a slim profile measuring 17 inches wide by three inches tall. A horizontal accent line bisects the front panels of both units. The front panel of the Z140 is dominated by a black conical volume control knob in the center of the panel. The metal knob features a finger-sized indentation for ease of use. The left side of the panel features the Myryad logo.

To the right of the volume control, also along the center line, ...

Anthem PVA-7 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction While even the most hardcore movie enthusiast would be hard-pressed to rattle off more than a handful of DVD or music titles in DTS ES (6.1 Surround) or THX EX (7.1 Surround), Anthem believes that 6.1 and 7.1 channel formats will eventually be the norm. DVD-Video mastering is exploring exciting new territory with surround mixes, as are the engineers mixing the first generation DVD-Audio and some SACD titles, yet it is the emerging market of video gaming that offers the most hope for advanced surround sound formats – both discrete and matrixed formats. To prepared for the future, Anthem has created the PVA 7, a power amplifier that will allow you to use all of the capabilities available in the most advanced audio/video receivers and AV preamps. The Anthem PVA 7 is a seven-channel, single-chassis power amplifier rated at 105 watts x 7 into 8 ohms and 140 watts x 7 into 4 ...

Krell Theater Amplifier Standard Multi-channel Amplifier
Introduction Krell has updated their home theater line, along with the rest of the KAV series, resulting in new products such as the Theater Amplifier Standard. The new Krell Theater Amplifier Standard ($7,500) is the only five channel amplifier in the line, designed to be used in conjunction with the newly released Home Theater Standard 7.1 AV preamp. The Theater Amplifier Standard is the largest multi-channel amplifier I have ever had in my system, measuring 17.25 inches wide, 9.75 inches high and 17.25 inches deep. This hefty amplifier weighs in at a solid 100 pounds. The Theater Amplifier Standard, like the rest of the new KAV series, features an attractive new and modern exterior design. The Theater Amplifier Standard is made out of a heavy gauge, brushed aluminum including the polished and rounded corners. The top panel is heavily perforated, with slots that allow heat to escape from within the amplifier. The front panel features the ...

Adcom GFA-5802 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction The GFA-5802 is Adcom’s most powerful amplifier at 300 watts per channel and, at $1,750, is also their most expensive. This 48-pound giant is cosmetically similar, with Its black matte finish and horizontal grooves, to other Adcom amplifiers of late. The distinguishing aesthetic mark on the GFA-5802, which is shared by other high-end Adcom products, is the small gold plate centered on the lower front of the amplifier. This plate has a toggle switch for the power, flanked by LEDs to indicate thermal overload or high distortion levels. The amplifier’s finish, while utilitarian, is well done, with no obvious tool marks. The finish features a baked-on matte black enamel, which should hold up well. Both sides of the amplifier feature large heatsinks, which eliminate the need for a cooling fan. The rear panel features balanced and single-ended inputs, as well as a switch to choose between the two. There are two sets of five-way ...
