Krell Phantom III Preamplifier

The Krell Phantom III Preamplifier is a solid state, solidly built remote controlled preamplifier that carries a list price of $5,500. It has a zero-feedback dual-mono design and is available in anodized silver or black with an optional digital-to-analog converter (DAC) plug in board. The unit under review here does not have the DAC option.

PS Audio NuWave Phono Converter

The PS Audio NuWave Phono Converter is a very useful and, more importantly, very good sounding component for the digital age.

Acoustic Imagery Atsah Power Amplifiers

The Acoustic Imagery Atsah power amplifiers are rated at 400 Watts per mono chassis and carry a list price of $8995 per pair. Besides a power rating that would be a good fit in a system of any size, the amplifiers have a signal-to-noise ratio of 128 dB, which means they can be expected to add very little of their own character to the musical signal passing through.

Audio Horizons “More Than a Fuse” Fuses

Audio Horizons Platinum Reference Fuse

Audio Horizons Platinum reference FuseFuse "upgrades" never really turned me on (pun intended). I have tried aftermarket fuses from AMR, Audio Magic, and Synergistics and each was an improvement over stock fuses.

Fritz Speakers REV7 Loudspeakers

Fritz Rev 7 Speaker

Now this was worth waiting for! Two and a half years ago, I reviewed the Fritzspeakers REV 5 speakers and found they "are not only good for the money, they are truly outstanding". I noted that they would benefit from a "little more sparkle and better resolution". Other than that, the REV 5 offered not only excellent overall sound quality, but are an amazing value.

YG Acoustics Kipod II Signature Main Modules Speakers

YG Acoustics Kipod II Signature

A lot has changed with these high performance 2-way speakers since I reviewed the original version of the Kipod loudspeakers. The enclosure was undated with hidden corner bolts, cleaning up the front panel appearance. There is a single pair of binding posts on the rear which fits with my preference for not bi-wiring.
