Audioengine N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier Review
One discussion topic I constantly see on Audio forums and chat rooms is the “second system.” Most of us dream of having at least one room in the home/apartment that can serve as a primary listening and/or home theater room. But bringing a functional system into any room while maintaining feng shui can be  challenging. It can be doubly challenging for a second system. When it comes down to it, most of us are willing to sacrifice some performance for convenience; after all, who wants a 60-pound amp sitting on the dresser, no matter how great the sound? Audioengine's latest release, the N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier makes such sacrifices a lot easier. This 22-watt unit can serve proudly in any second system, even as “the” system if space dictates. Quick to SetupLike every Audioengine product I've tested, the N22 is ...

McIntosh MC302 Stereo Amplifier Preview
McIntosh has announced two brand new Stereo Amplifiers featuring the latest advancements in both electronic component and material design to delivery accuracy, warmth, and emotional impact in music reproduction.  The lesser expensive MC302 was designed to be paired with McIntosh's recently announced C48 Stereo Control Unit.  McIntosh claims the 300 watt-per-channel MC302 is the most advanced amplifier they've ever produced at this power level.  The higher power allows each connected loudspeaker to reach its full audio potential.  Helping ensure high-quality music reproduction are all new patent-spending speaker wire binding posts.Designed to be durable like all their long-lasting products, the MC302 from McIntosh is able to deliver full rated power to speakers of all shapes and sizes.  Further, the MC302 is engineered to run "cool" in normal use without an extraneous noise from the connected chassis or speakers.  This unit uses ...

Rogue Audio Atlas Magnum Power Amplifier Review
I've heard many audiophiles complain that there are not enough affordable, excellent sounding and well made components manufactuered in the United States anymore. Yes, it is true that many European and American designers have been contracting out their manufacturing to Asia to cut costs and keep prices within reach of ordinary hifi nuts.  And, yes, there are some American based manufacturers who make very fine gear, but priced for the Maserati crowd.  Yet, to make a blanket statement concerning the demise of fairly priced American products is unfounded, in my opinion. Rogue Audio is one such company that has been making very fairly priced, wonderfully built and well reviewed components since 1996. They specialize in tubed preamplifiers and amplifiers. Rogue products range in price from $995 for the Metis preamplifier to $9995 for the powerhouse Apollo mono block amplifiers. It ...

McIntosh MC252 Power Amplifier
The importance of having the absolutely correct amplifier that sends the proper amount of power to your audio systems’ loudspeakers cannot be understated. And especially if your system at home features high-end speakers such as Paradigm monitors or a set of Anthony Gallo Acoustics Reference speakers, you should make sure that you purchase the right type of power amplifier to drive your loudspeakers to their peak levels, while never causing distortion in the process; which brings me to the McIntosh MC252 Power Amplifier. This power amp weighs around 95 pounds, stands about 10 inches tall and delivers a powerful 250 watts per channel.The sleek design of this power amp will fit right at home alongside your main audio rack components and the McIntosh blue light emanating from the power output displays on either side of the amp distinguishes this product ...

Halcro dm38 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Halcro amplifiers have built themselves quite an impressive reputation in the last few years.  I remember first hearing Halcro at a 2003 CES DTS exhibit. The exhibit had the gorgeous huge H-shaped monoblocks placed next to each speaker.  Shortly thereafter, several other audio magazines reviewed the various available Halcro amplifiers with much praise; one even called a Halcro amplifier “the best amplifier ever.”  Recently, I have had the opportunity to review home theater components from Halcro’s lower-priced and more attainable Logic series.  As one can imagine, I was quite excited when Halcro offered me a chance to review their DM38, a stereo amplifier from their Reference series.  I was anxious to see if Halcro could transfer the sonic qualities from their reference monoblocks to the DM38, which at $20,000 is the least expensive amplifier in their Reference line, and whether ...
