Roger said: PS Audio says that the Stellar M700 is one of the most extraordinary monoblocks ever sold for less than $5000/pair. I have to agree. The Stellar M700 is my new favorite entry-level high-end power amplifier.

Aron said: Is a pair of Moon 888s worth $118,888? Only your bank account and conscience can tell you. What I can tell you is that my last few months of listening have turned up a new musical masterpiece. It’s called the Simaudio Moon 888.
