5 Hearts AWARD
1 / 2022
"This is a very accomplished and well-featured integrated amplifier. It will appeal to music lovers that are not hung up on wanting a gazillion and one boxes but do demand excellent sound quality.
Get the speaker partnering right – I got excellent results using the Xavian Perla and Falcon LS3/5A models – and the amp should last you pretty much forever. And in many ways that’s how I see this amp and its audience – people that aren’t afraid to spend a little extra to get what they want, but at the same time appreciate longevity in a product.
Personally, I’d have liked to have had a USB input included as it restricts the streamers you can use to some extent. I’d also liked to have had the headphone sockets accessible on the front panel rather than round the back.
The 80D isn’t a cheap amplifier and its price point puts it in a very competitive marketplace. However, it does feel that it offers good value for money in many ways – it’s made in Norway, very well finished with great pride of ownership, its’s well specified, and, perhaps most importantly for readers of HiFi Pig, it sounds very good."
