"...the VA880 is an excellent product.  It sounds good.  It seems reliable. It seems to be decent value for the dollar.  It has enough power for most speakers and rooms.  It’s easy to use.  It does a great job of balancing various and competing characteristics.  It kind of reminds me of the Buick Grand National, which wasn’t perfect, but is a beloved icon of American cars.  I always find a parallel between audio, cars and aircraft.  If this was a jet, it would be the Phantom F4E.  I really can’t find anything wrong with the VA880, can’t think of any particular circumstance where it might not work well, and plenty of reasons to recommend it.  It’s rare that I don’t have to add multiple limiting qualifications for a product.  If you have an open mind, put it on your list..."

"...what a lovely integrated amplifier!  I thoroughly relished my time with the KR Audio VA880.It’s a perfect example of what sonic heights a hybrid solid-state/vacuum tube design can reach.  It doesn’t offer a phono stage which for some people is good because they either have one already or want to choose their own since it’s a very important part of any analog system... Those who value tone color, texture, imaging and musicality vs. the harder edged more academic presentation will like this alot. The build quality is excellent as well. It's hefty, but not so much that you need Ray Lewis' physique to move it around and it does not have a large footprint for those who have smaller spaces. If you want to do a little tube rolling, there's not a huge armada of bottles to tend with, so cost would be low..." Check out the entire review
