Testimonials

“My hat is off and my E.A.R.s are way open for the fabulous EAR 534 Power Amplifier. I bought the review sample. State of the art and most highly recommended!”   Robert H. Levi, Positive Feedback (read the review)

“The EAR 534 Power Amplifier distinguishes itself from the competition like a Bruckner symphony: You hear it and you think-architecture. Grandeur. Clarity of line. Clarity of purpose. Richly drawn beauty, for beauty’s own sake. This is “musical” in a manner different from the single-ended amps or the sprightly solid-state entries like the Naits and the Gaincards or just about everything else I know of – but it’s “musical” nonetheless. Living with this amp was a rich experience I didn’t expect, and which I wasn’t happy to see come to an end. Recommended, in a tall, Zen kind of way.” – Art Dudley, Listener Magazine
