Sonic Frontiers Power II Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction The Sonic Frontiers Power II is a $5000 stereo power amplifier rated at 110 watts per channel at either two, four or eight ohm impedances. Its aesthetic design is somewhat post modern in that the aluminum case and Sonic logo give the Power II a futuristic feel. The 16 tubes suggest at first glance, a more traditional approach to high end amplification. Sonic Frontiers is far from a traditional electronics company. Over the past 10 years this Canadian firm founded by Chris Johnson and Chris Jensen have caused a stir in the well established tube electronics market. It isn't easy to get prime placement in A-list US retailers, yet Sonic has. It isn't because of sweet talking either. Their gear performs; the Power II is a good example. Living with the Power II From the moment you open the boxes for the Power II you are reminded that you have invested in something special. ...

Krell FPB 600 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Unlike many manufacturers' claims of improved performance from one generation to the next, the Krell Full Power Balanced 600 is not only a HUGE improvement over its predecessor the KSA 300S, it is a kick in the head and a punch in the gut to just about everything I have heard before, tube or solid state. In the areas of transparency, mid range and treble purity, and bass control and bass extension; the FPB 600 has that non fatiguing utter ease that sucks me into a recording much the way a live performance can, and reproduced music almost never does. "In this corner, weighing in at..." At 185 pounds, don't even try to lift this thing yourself. Much of the FPB 600s weight comes from its massive pair of toroidal transformers which are wired in parallel and act as the heart of this heaving beast. Rated at 600 watts into 8 ohms, the ...

Mark Levinson No. 333 Dual Monaural Power Amplifier
Introduction Having all the power you need is such a wonderful luxury. Imagine being able to sleep in whenever you wanted, never having to answer to your boss, or driving as fast as you'd like on the freeway. This is what it is like to own a Mark Levinson No. 333 dual monaural, 300 watt into 8 ohm stereo amplifier. I have had the No. 333 in my reference music system for exactly one year and I can say it has been the strongest single component in my signal path. I have driven a number of lofty, high end loudspeakers including the 90 dB efficient Martin Logan Re-Quests, my former reference loudspeakers the 93 dB efficient Cello Stradivari Legends, and the super efficient 94 dB efficient Wilson CUBs. The one constant in all these was that no matter how loudly I played Stravinsky, Prong, Stevie Ray Vaughn or even Pink Floyd, I never heard the ...

Krell KAV-300i Integrated Amplifier
Introduction Designing a cost-is-no-object AV system really isn't that hard. Ripping out walls, floating the floor, professionally hanging all sorts of room treatments and installing all of the best electronics practically guarantees a successful result. The problem is, not all of us have the $500,000-plus it takes to achieve all-out audio/video nirvana. A true challenge lies in developing a very high performance system on a much more modest budget. This brings us to the introduction of the Krell KAV-300i integrated amplifier. Priced at $2500 USD and rated at 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms, this little monster gives an up-and-coming high-end music enthusiast the ability to luxuriate in the high-end goodness known as Krell without having to sell any of the children to Gypsies. The Krell KAV-300i is a sleek design operated either by beautifully machined front panel or by remote control. The KAV-300i is equipped with four inputs, one balanced and three unbalanced. Its ...

Kenwood Stage III KM-Z1 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Never known as a manufacturer of high end components, Kenwood's release of the KC-Z1 Home Theater Controller and KM-Z1 Power Amplifier combo, may seem surprising. Part of their Stage 3 line of product, these two components represent Kenwood's attempt at providing high quality home theater solutions. The KC-Z1 Controller offers the latest circuitry for home theater surround sound including Dolby Digital (AC-3) and the upgraded THX designed specifically for 5.1 channel systems as well as Dolby Pro Logic. The companion six-channel 130 watts per channel KM-Z1, can be connected to the KC-Z1 via a convenient dB-25 Preout Audio Connection, which makes interfacing equipment a much simpler prospect, though Kenwood doesn't supply one with the two units. The real genius behind the KC-Z1 is its touch screen panel. The touch screen rests comfortably on the front panel of the unit when not in use, otherwise it is a complete 900 MHz universal remote controller. Programming ...
