TONEAudio is in the process of making our complete back catalog of equipment reviews available for those of you wanting to just find a specific review without having to download the full issue that they first appeared. This will be an ongoing project for the next few months, so please stop back if you don’t see what you want immediately.


Balanced Audio Technology VK-3000SE Integrated Amplifier

Balanced Audio Technology VK-3000SE Integrated Amplifier BAT Is Back

The VK-3000SE from Delaware’s Balanced Audio Technology (BAT) is a vacuum-tube linestage and a solid-state amplifier rolled into one. The latter offers 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms and twice that into 4 ohms. Read More


McIntosh MHA100 Integrated Headphone Amplifier

McIntosh MHA100 Integrated Headphone Amplifier

I can’t believe what I’m hearing from my little pair of Energy satellite speakers, which I think I paid $150 for about a decade ago. Dr. Dre’s 2001 should not be thumping like this through these speakers. Read More


Van Alstine Vision Phono Preamplifier

Van Alstine Vision Phono Preamplifier

Though famous for his tube designs, Frank Van Alstine is no slouch with solid state either.  With passive EQ and no coupling capacitors, this American made phonostage offers no frills high performance. Read More


Simaudio MOON Evolution 610LP phonostage

Simaudio MOON Evolution 610LP phonostage

Bouncing between St. Vincent’s current and last album, I can’t help but be in awe of the staying power of the vinyl record.  Thanks to the many manufacturers, like Simaudio, who have not only kept the faith, but continue to innovate and refine their designs, spinning records is better than ever in the year 2014 than it ever was.

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Preamplifier

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Preamplifier Top shelf

PrimaLuna and I go way back; back before TONEAudio was even a twinkle in my eye back.  The first audio review I wrote for The Absolute Sound happened to be the original EL-34 based ProLogue 1, and was way more exciting than the boring NAD integrated amplifier that Robert Harley was going to have me cover for my first assignment.

Devialet 120

Devialet 120

Everything we loved about the Devialet 110 is here in spades with the new 120, but the addition of a crucial feature makes the 120 more than a simple upgrade. Read More


Peachtree nova220SE Integrated Amplifier

Peachtree nova220SE Integrated Amplifier

The idea of an integrated amplifier has always appealed to me. Combining the amplifier and preamplifier sections in a properly isolated design makes economic sense—just sit back and enjoy the music without the bleed-through of a tuner. Read More


Roksan Kandy K2 BT Integrated Amplifier

Roksan Kandy K2 BT Integrated Amplifier

British hi-fi buffs know Roksan Audio as a company that offers extraordinary value and sonics that challenge far pricier competitors. The company, located just northwest of London, takes a complete-system approach, with analog and digital sources, amplification, speakers, cables, and power supplies among its product lineup—and it is currently making a push into the North American market.

Blumenstein Audio Thrashers Speakers

Blumenstein Audio Thrashers Speakers Get ready to rock!

One of the signs of a mature audiophile is whether they have a true garage system—not the wife’s old Lloyd’s faux-wood tuner/record player/cassette, but an actual receiver, disc player and speakers. Read More


GoldenEar Technology Triton Seven Speakers

GoldenEar Technology Triton Seven Speakers Boom! Ba-boom!

The shock of thunderous bass waves is what the GoldenEar Triton Seven speakers greet me with to start a surprising review experience. Put away your preconceived notions of what slim, budget mini-towers should sound like—these are the first such speakers that don’t prompt me to add a subwoofer, even just to see if any bass response is missing.
