"AAA Recommended Component - I expected the A 51 to sound good. What I wasn't prepared for was how good it sounded right out of the box. Its midrange was totally seductive, its soundstaging and imaging abilities in the same league as some of the best gear I've ever heard at any price."
Quote from T3 (UK) :
"The A 51 has so much grunt, grip and grace, you have to restrain yourself from cranking up the volume until the walls start to ripple Matrix style.... T3 Five Star Gold Award."
