Pros:Quality, Performance, Price.

Cons:Speaker terminals could have more space between them.

The Bottom Line: If you can find an amp that will outperform the HCA-1500A, it'll cost you 3 times the price. What more is there to say?


Excellent sound and build quality. Massive current/power capabilities, and warm tube-like sound. Ratings for power are conservative and price is unbelievable for an amp of this calibre. Midrange and treble are "airey" and grainless, bass is tight and powerful without being muddy. 12-volt trigger allows for automatic turn-on if your preamp supports this feature. Speaker terminals could be spaced out a little more to make connections easier when bi-wiring. A great match with my Parasound P/HP-850 preamp.

Associated equipment:

Parasound P/HP-850 Preamp
Cambridge Audio D500SE CD Player
Pinnacle Classic Gold Tower Speakers
Audioquest Type IV speaker cables (bi-wired)
Audioquest Sidewinder interconnects
