In a crowded market, the combination of the PT-100 preamp and A-300 power amp from Emotiva scored a solid five star rating from Hi-Fi Choice.


The reviewer described the experience of comparing the combo to a signficantly pricier alternative (the Rotel RA1572) as "jaw dropping".


Leaving aside our well-attested caveats around the value of reviews, this one one is undeniably a corker.


David Vivian concludes:

“Occasionally, products come along that force you to re-evaluate what you understand by arguably the most crucial of all evaluation considerations: value for money. This remarkable pair is exactly that – a new pre-power amp price benchmark, the most convincing evocation of ‘Affordable High-End’ that I’ve yet encountered and as a result an unequivocal great buy.”
