Audio Analogue integrateds have a well-established reputation for sweet, powerful sound, but, according to Richard Kohlruss, who distributes the brand, the new 100Wpc Fortissimo "is more detailed, more rhythmic" than earlier models. It also has an unbelievably deep feature set. It can accommodate both digital and analog inputs, including MC or MM phono, and it has digital outputs, including USB, allowing you to use it for recording vinyl -- or any other source -- to computer. It can handle sampling rates up to 96kHz, has a headphone jack, and is still assembled in Tuscany -- all for $2495.
