Roger said: The MCA 525 may look unpretentious, but don’t underestimate it. Its excellent all-around performance makes it my favorite midpriced multichannel amp.

Read the SoundStage! Access review.

The gist: A solid anchor for your new home-theater system.

Price: $5695

Roger said: If I were in the market for a new amp, I’d buy the Bryston 4B3 without hesitation. It is without a doubt a true classic, continuing in the tradition of the legendary Bryston B amps that came before it.

Hans said: Exogal’s Ion PowerDAC is a novel, forward-thinking concept. It partners a high-performance DAC with a multitude of inputs, including traditional analog inputs and a dedicated headphone output, with a proprietary amplifier in a well-tailored all-in-one package.

Jeff said: It sounds stunning, it looks like a real power amp should, and for €29,000, it has all the technology and badass hardware you could want.

Reviewers' Choice

Read the SoundStage! Ultra review.

The gist: Jeff Fritz’s favorite Gryphon amp.

Price: $14,998 per pair

Website: www.psaudio.com

Erich said: The BHK Signature 300 Monos are expensive, but nothing in their build quality or sound makes me doubt that they’re worth every penny PS Audio asks for them -- or that they’re great amps.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Superamps without the superhigh price.

Price: AU$29,500 as a package

Website: www.redgumaudio.com

Edgar said: Given these ideals of signal integrity preservation are rather elusive, albeit not totally rare nor unique, the Magnificata passive preamplifier and monoblock amplifiers from Redgum Audio meet this stringent mandate – with full autumn leaves flying colours.

Read the SoundStage! Australia review.

The gist: Straight-wire-with-gain-type sound.
