Magnum Audio MF 160 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Magnum, a small British audio component manufacturer, was started several years ago by the one of the founding fathers of the REGA Planar turntable. Today, Magnum is making their line of mosfet integrated, pre and power amplifiers, CD players and loudspeakers available to audiophiles and music lovers throughout the U.S. I was fortunate enough to procure the MP 160 ($750 USD) preamplifier and the MF 160 ($750 USD) power amplifier and have had the two pieces in and out of my audio system over the last few months. The MP 160 preamplifier is a slim-line unit featuring all single ended inputs and outputs and boasts an internal power supply. The front panel features an on/off switch, three buttons each (tape monitor, mute and mono functions), an input selector along side balance and volume controls.

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.

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 ...
