"...rich, uncolored and captivating... silky and organic..."
Robert J. Reina, Stereophile Magazine.


The 200.2 unveiled a soundstage with more realistic openness and space than I have previously heard. I believe that reproducing sound of this quality requires a system to have superb timing with equally good low level detail retrieval. The 200.2 has tremendous bass power with an attendant level of bass definition. The human voice is reproduced with marvelous fidelity via the 200.2, whether it is a solo from Patricia Barber, or the chorus of the Polovtsian Dances. It would have been easy to listen to female vocals and nothing else during the time I have had the 200.2.

The most succinct description that I can offer of the sonic and musical abilities would be to say that it is the musical equivalent of baby bear's porridge. It is just right. The 200.2 amplifier never is too much, or too little of anything. The loudest crescendo isn't exaggerated; the softest caress of a piano key isn't diminished. Feed it an exceptional recording and you get stunning realism in return; feed it a lesser recording and you still can appreciate its musical strengths.

I think I have found the amplifier that I have been looking for.
