AT A GLANCE
Outstanding dynamics and headroom
Equal power to all channels
Seven-year transferable warranty
Very, very heavy
Recommended for two independent 20-Ampere power outlets
This amp never broke a sweat driving my 4-ohm speakers at insanely loud levels.
There are quite a few people in the audio world who have become household names, at least among audiophiles. I’m talking about legends like Paul Klipsch, Amar Bose, Saul Marantz, Henry Kloss, Bob Carver. But these aren’t the only influential contributors to the business and history of hi-fi. Among the lesser-known audio icons is Morris Kessler, the founder of ATI.
