Balanced Audio Technology’s new solid-state masterpiece, the REX 500 power amplifier, has been crowned as outstanding by Hi Fi News in its February 24 issue just out. Of its cover star, the mag says: “On offer are unburstable power, rich tonality, fine detail and sublime soundstaging, making music listening an utter joy. The REX 500 is amplifier royalty, and surely ranks as one of the very best at its price – or above. You might even want to pick up two of ’em.”
