    Killer amp for the money

    by

    This amplifier is far and away the best I've had in my listening room. It's a hard piece to describe. The sound it provides is immediate, clean, and charming. Imaging is a real strength, especially depth. I can highly recommend this amp to anyone looking for something less bright sounding than a lot of its competitors. Bonus - the built in phono section leaves nothing to be desired. I've had Rega and Ortofon MM cartridges running through it with great success.

    The Croft tells the story straight up

    The overall sound is clear, lifelike and “tube warm.” The phono stage is outstanding, but it handles digital inputs just fine. I listen to pretty much every genre, with exception of Classical and EDM. The Croft sounds great with everything I listen to. It has a nice stereo sound stage. Everything is even keeled – not too much bass and not too bright – it is just right. I seek a non-biased reproduction from a stereo and not an opinion. The Croft tells the story straight up (the audio equivalent of neat if you are a whiskey drinker).
