Monarchy Audio SM70 Pro power amplifier

This amplifier looks like a miniature version of the classic Mark Levinson ML-2, but it offers a big sound that qualifies it as “one of the great solid-state amplifier values of all time.” The SM70 can be used as both a stereo version or a monoblock (which we preferred), and in balanced or single-ended configurations. It’s also neutral enough to stay out of the way of the music.
