Aron said: The sound of BAT’s VK-255SE is therefore not quite my cup of tea -- but if tube-like warmth, buttery textures, and arresting dynamics are what you find most inviting, then this amplifier deserves to be on your audition list.
The gist: Will fit some listeners better than others.
Price: $1499 each
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.
The gist: Lots of power and goo sound quality in a compact, affordable package.
Price: $118,888 per pair
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.
The gist: First super amp from this Canadian company.
