Best designed integrated amps

You have purchased your bookshelf speakers, not only do they sound good but they look good. But what about the integrated amps? They must be able to power up your speakers and look good in the process. Check out some of the best looking integrated amps I have unearthed.

#1 NAD C 316BEE integrated amplifier

The C 316BEE, a 40-watt-per-channel, Class AB stereo integrated amp ($380, £300, AU$599). It looks right and is designed in the no-frills NAD tradition. So it's short on features, but sounds fantastic, and it handily drives hard-to-handle speakers such as Magnepans.

#2 Yamaha R-S202 stereo receiver

Every time I review a stereo receiver I remember how much easier they are to set up than any of today's AV receivers. Just hook up a pair of speakers (I used ELAC Debut B6s), and a source such as a Blu-ray player or games console, and you're good to go. Turn on the R-S202, select the input and enjoy the tunes. It costs $149, £199 or AU$479.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
