Bottom Line:   
A great buy at around $200.00! This small unit packs a punch at 8 ohms.45 watts and should do well in 4 ohm also! The MOS FET devices ahcive higher performance and reduces power consumption! This contributes to flat dampning characteristics across the audio spectrum and gives your speakers a wider range and improves detail in the mid range and high frequencies!

Have been running my custom built Vifa 2-ways off my Yamaha HTR 5930! I disconnected them and hooked them up to the Elite and they just about jumped off the stands. Very Impressive! More detailed sound especially in the high section and really good bass. My only complaint with the 35R is the treble control. It does leave abit to be desired for a little nicer control!

This unit runs just warm in comparison with my Yamaha, which are notoriouis for being more then abit warm. So,,,,good deal there. in 4 ohm, it will probably run on the warm side, so give it good ventilation!

Soundwise it is abit more forward then my Yammi which has a warmer and smoother sound. The elite kicks butt in the details and bass department! Overall, I'm quite pleased with this purchase and given a little break in time should mellow out a little! A Keeper For Sure......

For around $200.00, this is quite a buy! For a small amp, it packs quite a punch, very impressive!
Comparing it to my Yamaha HTR5930 Receiver, it has a more forward and natural sound and runs alot cooler then my Yammi! The Yamaha is a bit more warmer and smoother in sound. The Elite is certainly more detailed in sound then the Yamaha and bass response is also quite nice. I did find the treble control to be abit lacking and could be a little nicer. I may hookup my graphic equalizer to smooth things out abit, but I will give it a little time to break in first! Running 8 ohm speakers on this unit, it just gets warm, if your going with 4 ohm speakers, then it could get a little warmer, so keep sides and top open for ventilation! If your looking for a good 2 channel stereo set up, this unit is a good pick for the heart of your system

Bottom Line:   
I gave this a 3 star in overall sound of the less than $500USD integrated amps available, but it is less than $200 new. For the money a definite 5 star.

This amp is very neutral, smooth, detailed, with a tight clean bass. It is not bright and does not have that artificial boomy bass that lower price equipment is known for. It mates well with quality monitor speakers on stands, detailed interconnects and speaker cable, and the better quality universal DVD players available. At least that is my system and this a good combination.

If you value a balanced and natural sound in a low priced, lower powered integrated amp for a second system, that will remind you of your high-end system then look now further. If you want a flashy mid-fi piece with crisp bright highs and boomy driving bass to impress your friends than look elsewhere.

I discovered this integrated amp by accident and it does not shame itself for the little money it costs. It is as enjoyable to listem to as my high-end tube based system. Where can you get a 45wpc mosfet remote controlled integrated amp remenicent of the lower powered British amps for a pitance? This amp is the North American version of the same European Pioneer A-209R model.

It is a definite keeper plus really cool to look at too.

Bottom Line:   
An absolute bargain in a sea of overpriced audio equipment, this little amp provides clean, consistent and rich power, which benefits anyone, especially those with highly efficient speakers. I have two pairs of EPI speakers (Magnus A11s and A12s) wired in parallel, and this little amp makes them sing! If listening to music is your primary activity, and you're not driving a terribly heavy load, then you are going to be very pleased with this gem.

This is an economy gem. I bought this for my office system. I also hooked it up to some nice towers with ribon tweeters I recently built. Pleasantly surprised me Very clear & detailed, good headroom, warmer sounding than most SS amps. Decent phono section. Great value for the money. $170 Would make a super dorm, bedroom, or even main.
