Amps which are Great, but either Unknown or Underpriced

Hello everyone,

When I think of Power Amps (or integrated amps) that play / sound way beyond their price-point and can be non-household names, I think of companies like:

  1. Belles (Power Modules)
  2. McCormack
  3. Coda

Can you guys please suggest other Power Amps / Companies that are also somewhat unknown or of great value?

Your suggestions would really help me and others.  Thanks!


VAC 450 IQs - best I have ever heard.  Incredible mids and highs; bass that needs to be heard to be believed.  All VAC products punch above their weight class - these are no exception.
At their used prices, Convergent Audio Technology (CAT) amps are the greatest stone cold bargains in audio - much better even than their preamps.  You can pay ~$4-7k for amps that will compete with anything made today, regardless of price.
All very good suggestions but must include! Very well built,
very fairly priced!
Jeff Rowland 625’s relatively new, but I never hear Jeff Rowland being talked about like some of the other brands. It’s simply the best amp that I’ve ever had. It has "soul."
