's "Best Of 2002" List
The Best High-Performance Audio/Video Equipment You Can Buy

Power Amps
Category Winner – Krell Mcx 350 Monoblocks

Linn Klimax TWIN

While other high-end amps brag about their size, the Linn TWIN gets the mission of powering the world’s most demanding speakers accomplished as if it were related to James Bond.

Krell FPB Mcx 350 Monoblocks

$12,000 per pair
Krell amps have always been known for having the best bass in the business, but these smaller in size but big-sounding amps are the smoothest to ever come from the design studio of Dan D’Agostino.

Krell KAV 300iL
The idea of an integrated amp fell out of favor at some point in the late 1980s. However, it is still a very viable solution for many music fans who want to minimizes costs and maximize performance. The Krell packs in 150 watts per channel with the type of bass impact you’d expect from this brand. The KAV 300I also comes with a good remote and an optional tuner.

Parasound Halo A 23

This John Curl-designed Parasound amp is built to please the eye, the ear and the pocketbook.

Proceed HPA2
With sound reminiscent of a Mark Levinson amp for a fraction of the price, the Proceed HPA2 is a Best Of standard.

Rogue Audio Magnum Eighty Eight

Rogue Audio now holds the place once owned by Sonic Frontiers as the value leader in tube electronics. With a glowing sound that you just can’t deny, the Rouge Audio Magnum Eighty Eight is light on looks but high on value.

Sunfire Signature Amp
Bob Carver takes the Signature part of his Signature amp very seriously, as he personally signs the faceplate of each amp. The Signature amp features Carver’s Tracking Downconverter technology to output incredible amounts of power.
