MartinLogan Prodigy Loudspeakers
Introduction For years MartinLogan has produced electrostatic loudspeakers that have been considered by many to be at the top of their respective classes. The Prodigy is MartinLogan’s top-of-the-line speaker under their very-respected Statement E2 loudspeaker system. The Prodigy has been in production for close to 18 months. Although it utilizes technology from the Statement Loudspeakers, it does so at a much-reduced price. The Prodigy measures 67 inches tall, 16 inches wide, 28 inches deep and weighs a hefty 133 pounds per speaker. The MartinLogan Prodigies retail for $10,995 per pair in standard wood trim finishes. It’s hard to deny that MartinLogan loudspeakers have a unique look. The upper two-thirds of the loudspeaker consists of a thin transparent perforated panel, with the bottom portion of the loudspeaker containing the low-frequency enclosure. The Prodigy shares a similar size and position in MartinLogan’s speaker lineup with the ReQuests of the past, but that is where all similarities end. The ...

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 ...

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 ...

Meridian 800 CD/DVD-A/V Player
Introduction Meridian’s 800 is their flagship source component, responsible for reference level playback of compact discs, DVD-Video discs, DVD-Audio discs and beyond. The 800, like its AV preamp brother, the Meridian 861, is vastly configurable and highly programmable, allowing the end user to elicit incredible playback feats with true ease. Pricing starts at $19,440 for a basic CD/DVD transport, while a fully loaded unit complete with 5.1 analog outputs, Meridian’s proprietary digital output and an internal video processor weighs in closer to $25,000. Music lovers dedicated to stereo-only playback can use the 800 as a CD player and/or high-performance audio preamp that drives the owner’s existing high-end stereo amplifier(s) and speakers. Alternatively, the 800 can be directly and digitally connected to Meridian’s cutting edge digital speakers. If you subscribe to the less is more theory, these configuration options are as good as it gets, and if you are simplifying a stereo system, you can sell off ...
