  • “Occasionally, products come along that force you to re-evaluate what you understand by arguably the most crucial of all evaluation considerations: value for money. This remarkable pair [PT-100 and Bas-X A-300] is exactly that – a new pre-power amp price benchmark, the most convincing evocation of ‘Affordable High-End’ that I’ve yet encountered and as a result an unequivocal great buy.” (HiFi Choice Magazine, November 2017)
