Analog Domain M75D and M75P premium
Both the M75D integrated and M75P power amp are fast-paced and articulate, highly detailed, incredibly rhythmic and dynamic and lifelike, with power to spare.

Audio Technica AT-HS10 and Ortofon LH 2000 Turntable Headshells premium

Audio Technica ATN150MLX and Shure M97xE MM Phono Cartridges premium
Although both cartridges really are excellent, I am most surprised by the affordable Shure M97xE, and this cartridge is the main reason for writing this review.

Ayon Scorpio and S-3 Junior – part 1 premium
The Scorpio has a pleasant ripeness but without sounding warm. In fact, it sounds purer and more lifelike than various other tube amps that I tried. It is my new reference in its price class, and considerably beyond.
