Magnum Audio IA 170 Integrated Amplifier
Introduction The IA 170 served as my introduction to Magnum Audio as a high-end audio manufacturer. Magnum Audio is a British electronics company that is building a strong following on the east side of the pond and is expanding its reach within the U.S. The IA 170 is an integrated amp that retails for $750 here in the United States without a phono section, and $850 with phono included. For $750, the listener gets a one-chassis amplifier and preamp with 70 watts per channel into eight ohms and 110 watts per channel into four ohms, six single-ended inputs, one tape loop, a headphone output, mute and mono switches and bi-wireable speaker terminals. One of the unit’s inputs, labeled "monitor," is connected directly to the amplifying circuits for a purer signal path. The front of the IA 170, with the exception of its nameplate (which appears to be easily removable), is an attractive polished steel. While ...

Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Bob Carver is one of the most recognizable names in audio and now in home theater. His Sunfire project has produced an impressive list of highly successful AV products ranging from Sunfire’s groundbreaking (and rumbling) True Subwoofer and their great AV preamp to a full line of two and five amplification. The Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature is the latest offering from Carver as a reference-grade five-channel amplifier, priced at $3,495. The Signature moniker is given to the top of the line Sunfire products. It represents more than just marketing lip service. Signature products are physically inspected and hand signed by Carver himself. Each Cinema Grand Signature is rated at a beefy 405 watts per channel times five channels. The power ratings go through the ceiling when impedance drops to four or two ohms. This amp has two sets of speaker outputs for each of its five channels. Voltage Output is the most dynamic of the ...

Krell KAV-1500 Multi-channel Amplifier
Introduction The KAV-1500 is Krell’s $8,500 powerhouse five-channel amplifier, which delivers 300 watts per channel into eight ohms (600 watts into four ohms). Housed in the standard-size chassis are two massive two kVA toroidal power supplies with 14 proprietary Krell transistors per channel to ensure the highest level of musical accuracy. The KAV-1500 provides both balanced and single-ended inputs for maximum system compatibility. The most unique feature of this amplifier is Multiple Amplifier Throughput (MAT), which sends the same musical signal to all amplifier channels using only one of the balanced or single-ended connections, thereby reducing installation complexity with multiple amplifier systems. Individual channels can be bridged as well. In fact, bridging up to four channels produces a whopping 1,100 watts. To make changes to the amplifier’s configuration, such as bridging channels or setting it for MAT, it is necessary to remove the top of the unit and use the supplied jumper cables to create new ...

Mark Levinson No. 336 Dual Monaural Power Amplifier
Introduction The Mark Levinson No. 336 is the most powerful of Madrigal's second offering of their 300 series amplifiers. Rated at 350 watts per channel into eight ohms, 700 watts into 4 ohms and 1400 watts into 2 ohms, this dual mono, single-chassis power amp is designed to handle the most challenging of impedance loads on the most demanding genres of music. Priced at $9,500, the No. 336 replaces the No. 333. As compared to the No. 333, the No. 336 has slightly modified industrial design and different heat sinks than the No. 333, but it takes a trained eye to be able to tell the difference without bending down to read the front faceplate. Listening to a No. 336 vs. a No. 333 is a different story. The No. 336 is a tank, as you'd expect with a beefy 350-watt-per-channel amplifier. One man can not lift it alone. In fact, it comes with ...

Jeff Rowland Model 112 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Jeff Rowland Design Group makes the sexiest audio products in the world. There is no other way to put it. Milled from a solid billet of aluminum and etched with the most stunning brushed aluminum wavy pattern directly onto the amplifier, the Jeff Rowland Model 112 makes as much of a statement about your sense of design as it does your lust for accurate reproduction of sound. The Model 112 is a completely new look from Jeff Rowland Design Group, demonstrating increased value and a smaller physical size, as well as a departure from the battery design of some of their older products. The Model 112 features a unique two-tier design that isolates the amplifier section from the power supply. This serves to keep the sensitive amplifier circuitry shielded from the electrically noisy power supply. Unlike other "audiophile" amplifiers, the Rowland Model 112 avoids the temptation of breaking the amplifier into two (or four, ...
