Also try Audio Research Corporation at www.audioresearch.com. If you like tubes ARC amps are the best. The new introduction HD220 hybrid model is also outstanding.

Default Re: WHO MAKES THE BEST AMP?

Hoi,

For me a good or the best ampli is not ONLY the ampli but the AMPLI&SPEAKERS ist the better ampli.
I can find a Classè with B&W the best "ampli"
The Krell and Sonus Faber is too not bad,......

At first:

basis: recievers like Denon, onkyo, Marantz,..
up: Parasuond, Rotel, Electrocompaniet, Arcam,...
highend: Krell, Classè, Bryston, Chord, Accuphase, Mark Levinson,..

But a Bryston whitout a good/Best Speaker is nothing.
Personaly you can find a differnt from a Denon and a Rotel Ok, but from Rotel and Classè is not so evident this different (Ok more reliability, rifiniture, materials ) but not more as 10% more better sound from Rotel.

Who is the most beautiful woman? That is an equally subjective question with as many different answers as there are opinions.

As an A/V Pro with almost 30 years in the business, my own taste runs to neutral in components. I also believe in sanely-priced equipment. With those two factors in mind, I think the Anthem Statement Power Amps are certainly among the finest in existence and probably the best value in world-class amplifiers today.

One of the other factors that goes into making a good amplifier, is the design and topology. At HE2007 here in New York, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, I had the opportunity to listen to "Bel Canto`s" e.One amplifier. Demoed with Joseph Audio speakers, the sound was crisp and clean. But what impressed me the most was there small footprint. From the S300i with USB DAC at 150 watts per channel to the e.One REF1000 Mono Amplifier, you can place these Bel Canto`s just about anywhere.
From a computer sourced audio system in home or office, or full out home system. I would have to think the WAF would go up extremely.

Thoughts?

deaqcongreg,

You are right, the Bel Canto's did a great job with the Joseph Audio speakers. I have heard Joseph Audio several times and like them everytime I hear them. I still own several pairs of JSE speakers from the mid 80's (which is where they got the basics for their corssover design), which has some 20 years of mods on now. I don't know if you got to see the Cabbasse room which was powered by some 10 of the Bel Canto's mono's. Unfortunately the speakers were WAY to large for the little room they had and sounded terrible.

Just to put it out there one of my favorite rooms was the Nagra/Verity room. The new Nagra CD player was sooooooo smooth it was truly comparable to analog!
