Power Amplifier Reviews 2016
It’s hip to be square (with apologies to Huey Lewis and the News). Tubes are back and if you want to go beyond the current vinyl craze down the retro path, this VTA ST-120 power amplifier is a great way to get there!
The Pass Labs XA30.8 is a seemingly “low power” amplifier that one of the most uncompromised, cost no object amplifiers ever made at its power output level. It offers stupendous performance that the 30 WPC specification cannot hope to describe.
