80. Rogue Audio Magnum 88 (tube amp)
The AR editorial staff loves tubes, and this modestly-priced tube power amp hits the market niche left by Sonic Frontiers.


79. Krell KAV300iL (integrated amp)
Del Colliano’s dad uses this integrated amp on an older pair of Wilson WATT Puppies for a more reasonable solution for someone looking for a serious high-end audio system on a budget.


78. Mark Levinson (formerly Proceed) HPA2 HPA3 (power amp)
When you are looking for Levinson-like sound for all of your channels and your budget can’t swing Mark Levinson amps for every channel, these bad boys are the call. They are soon to be re-released under the Mark Levinson brand name.


77. Portal Audio Panache (integrated amp)
The idea of the integrated amp is not a new one, but selling a high-end one direct is. Sonically, this all-in-one package is something to behold.


76. Energy Connoisseur C5 (loudspeakers)
Another killer floor-standing speaker from Canada that doesn’t break the bank. If you had to pick between the CM4, you’d have a tough choice. Whichever one sounds better with Barry White would get our vote.


75. B&W CM4 (loudspeakers)
These B&W floor-standing speakers have become a reference standard for reviewer Brian Kahn because of their modern look and resolved sound.


74. Linn Classik Movie system Di (combo DVD-receiver)
The Linn Classik Movie DI gives you a nice taste of a reference Linn home theater system at a far lower price all-in-one chassis. Many improvements were made from the DI version from the original.


73. RBH Compact Theater (loudspeakers)
If you like the idea of home theater in a box but are offended by the crappy speakers that you get for under $1,000, you need to look into this RBH system.


72. Anthem Pre 2 (preamp)
For people with expensive taste in high-end audio gear who can’t buck up for the big-dollar gear, this Anthem preamp is a winner.


71. Krell FPB 400cx (amplifier)
This big beefy Krell amp powers Augie’s MartinLogans to unbelievable levels, never running out of current.
