Stereo+ Magazine: MA252 Integrated Amplifier is "Pure Pleasure for the Ears"

The MA252 is a hybrid integrated amplifier comprised of a vacuum tube preamplifier and a solid state power amplifier. It's rated for 100 Watts per channel into 8 Ohm speakers or 160 Watts per channel into 4 Ohm speakers.

Norway's Stereo+ Magazine calls it a "beautifully designed amplifier" with a "relaxing approach to the music, but still it plays with control and power." It is "pure pleasure for the ears."
