"Can you use an external power amplifier to help an AV receiver sound better? That was actually out of the question. What's amazing is that this works so clearly and unmistakably well with the IOTAVX AVXP1 for under 1,200 euros. The coarse and fine dynamics improved In the tested combination with a 1,600 euro receiver, it is significantly higher and perhaps even more so than would be possible with a slightly thicker receiver model.
So if you want to invest a budget for sound improvement: it doesn't always have to be the latest receiver. All too often it is the power amplifier that brings real sound progress. But not every one: I have listened to almost all multi-channel power amplifiers from well-known brand providers in the last few years. All of them are more expensive, hardly any of them are as powerful, and none of them sound better. Since I currently don't know of a more attractive solution in this price and performance range than the IOTAVX AVXP1, only one verdict remains: LowBeats reference." - Raphael Vogt, Lowbeats- Go to Review
