Audreal PA-20 Pure Class A Power Amp, $1995.00
Just a quick update on the Audreal PA-20; We have tested the Audreal 20 watts pure class A amp against several amps, some costing 3 times more and truthfully the Audreal is playing way above
it’s price point. The top end resolution is very tube like and this amp is dead quiet. The 20 watts is very deceptive. All that I can say is “TRUE SLEEPER”. I am keeping the PA-20 as my $4K and down benchmark amp and I pity all other $4K amps that try to take it on!

Audreal LP-2 (MM)
This $1295 vacuum tube base MM phono preamp was a quiet, smooth operator and exceedingly well-built with a particularly robust power supply. Mate it to a slightly aggressive high output MC cartridge and I bet they make beautiful music together, though even a warmish sounding MM cartridge sounded great.
Audreal LP-2 Phone Stage, $1295.00
Praise for the Audreal LP-2 phono stage:
“The Audreal sounded sensational.”
“The Audreal’s overall sonic performance sounded so “right” – spectacularly transparent in the midrange and had the flow and grace of tubes along with a “rich” harmonic structure”
