Best Amplifier over £1,000

Onkyo P-3000R/M5000R

Onkyo might be more famous for its multichannel products, but this pairing is a potent reminder of what it’s capable of with stereo. The P-3000R/M5000R combines an impressive feature set, including digital inputs with superb build and fantastic aesthetics – the VU meters are particularly eye-catching. Best of all, it’s a truly fantastic amplifier, able to drive the most demanding speakers to any volume level; it combines a powerful and explicit sound with excellent tonality and naturalness.
