Plinius SA-201

The Tuatoro is one of the more “tweakable” of the high-end preamps I've auditioned. This could be viewed as extraneous, but I did not find that to be the case. It allows any user to experiment and tune the Tautoro for his own system and personal...

Pioneer VSX-816 A/V Receiver

Back when Jimmy Carter was president (or was it Ford?), my first audio system featured a Pioneer SX-434 receiver. Even then, manufacturers had figured out that SX sells. My old receiver was rated at 15 watts per channel and weighed 18 pounds. Today,...

Denon AVR-5805 A/V Receiver

Bryston Powerpack 300 Power Amplifier
