McIntosh MA6300

Although I have always been interested in McIntosh products, I was really intrigued by the McIntosh MA6300 because I could finally afford one. Modest power output and all solid state construction will let you into the world of McIntosh ownership for just $3,000.

Lyngdorf SDAI-2175 Integrated Amplifier

If the SDAI-2175 power amplifier has flaws, they were invisible in my system. Every other amplifier I have had sounded like "something", while this one simply does not. This product has no sound characteristics of its own, and this is a remarkable achievement.

As I said at the beginning of this review, now is a good time to be an audiophile. The Parasound 2100 preamplifier and 2250 power amplifier offer sound quality across the board so good I would have thought you'd have to pay at least $3,000 to get them.

Halcro's MC series amplifiers come in two, three, five and seven channel configurations (designated the MC20, MC30, MC50, and MC70). The MC70 lists for $7,000, but compared to the Halcro Reference DM88 monoblocks, which will set you back more than $40,000 per pair, the MC70 is quite the bargain. So what kind of amp do you get for a kilobuck per channel?
