The Brio-R is an amazing integrated amp. The
strongest 50 watts we have heard, and a sound that compares to
much more expensive amps. Remote and Phono included. A great review
in What Hi-Fi. And from Neil Gader of The Absolute
Sound, "Right out of the gate, I was impressed by the
weight, tonal density, and authority the Brio-R brought to recordings.
Brass had the requisite brilliance but avoided agressiveness.
Even on orchestral passages filled with heavy low strings and
winds and big precussion, the Brio-R goes a long way maintaining
timbral cues and controlling waves of harmonics."
