Andrew Quint of The Absolute Sound "Best of AXPONA 2019" - Best Sound (for the money)
GoldenEar Technology Triton One.R. No contest.
The Triton One.R is an extraordinary reference quality loudspeaker that is a smaller, less expensive follow up to their award winning flagship, the Triton Reference and they are amazing! We showcased them at AXPONA last April, and the room was "standing-room-only" all weekend. A great value !
PrimaLuna has pioneered numerous technologies to redefine tube amplification. From increased reliability and tube life all the way to our unique, signature sound. High-quality valve-based amplification has a smooth, organic quality that ordinary solid-state amps can’t match; yet for many people the price tags can seem prohibitively high.
PrimaLuna amps are designed to bring this magical, effusive sound quality to a more affordable price point, without compromising on build quality or performance. Clever features like PrimaLuna's Adaptive AutoBias circuitry – which makes it easy to switch valves without the amp breaking stride – add further value, ensuring PrimaLuna products are the epitome of 'affordable high-end' audio.
Here are some of our favorite models:
PrimaLuna EVO 400 Preamplifier
PrimaLuna EVO 400 Integrated Amplifier
Primaluna EVO 400 Power Amplifier

I have been purchasing hi-fi equipment from Saturday Audio for over ten years. I was initially drawn to them by their great prices and selection. I soon realized that the folks over at Saturday Audio are terrific to work with and are very passionate about their products. Living out of state, I've had the flawless experience of purchasing equipment from them both online and at the shop. Highly recommended!
I’ve been shopping at Saturday Audio Exchange for all of my audio visual needs for over 25 years. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, finding the perfect product, from a turntable to TV, always keeping my budget in mind. I would recommend Saturday Audio Exchange to anyone who wants quality merchandise.
I love the fact these guys are audio geeks, and helpful, and knowledgeable. They did not over-sell us and instead talked about our needs and our options in a practical way.
There's no pressure. Advice is given when asked for but nobody tries to push a particular product or brand on you. These are music lovers who share their enthusiasm and are happy to help you find the right stuff to meet your needs.
