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

Two Channel Preamps
Category Winner – Mark Levinson No. 32

For less than $600, the B&K preamp is a breakthrough product that had Brian Kahn impressed. At the price, the PT3 is the type of audio product that can get anyone hooked on owning high-performance music systems.

Conrad Johnson Premiere 17LS
If you are considering a two-channel preamp, think about the $4,495 Conrad-Johnson Premier 17LS, a preamp that performs at the top of its price class. It produces a richness that will remind you of why you love live music. Instruments can lack some of the finest transient details and can sound a hair on the relaxed side of neutral, but on the other hand the 17LS reproduces 3-D images with great realism.

Mark Levinson No. 32
There is simply no stereo solid state preamp worthier of lust than the No. 32. Bryan Southard sold a kidney to be able to afford one for his reference system.

Parasound Halo P 3
For its price of $600, this John Curl-designed Parasound stereo preamp is an undisputed champion of audio. It can also be matched with a Best Of award-winning power amp called the A 23 and a tuner.
