Jeff said: The Luxman L-509X is a beautiful component that produces beautiful sound.
The gist: Styling and sound this good will never get old.
Gordon said: It looks gorgeous, sounds wonderful, and, with the BluOS app, works seamlessly. Add a good pair of speakers and you’ve got a killer system. Warmly recommended.
The gist: Excellent connectivity options and power delivery in a beautiful package.
Thom said: The A-9110 has all the analog inputs you might need. Its very fine phono stage should help you get the most out of your vinyl, and its silent, wideband amplifier stage will give you more than just satisfactory sound.
The gist: A real amp for $350 is almost unheard of.
Hans said: If you’re a digital-heavy audiophile on the prowl for the ultimate one-box solution, TEAC’s NR-7CD could be just what you’re looking for.
The gist: Add a set of good, small speakers for a compact high-end digital system.
Hans said: As long as you don’t need a ton of power, the SU-G700 should be at the top of your list for an integrated amp at the $2500 price point.
The gist: Tremendous sound quality with looks to match.
Gordon said: The Yamaha WXA-50 is an amplifier you can grow with, and grow into.
The gist: Lots of capabilities and sound quality for just under $500.
