The processor is top notch. THe amplifier is very good. Not neccesary to match the two though. Both are discontinued and Audio Refinement no longer exists though. YBA (the parent company) has replaced it with YBA Design brand. Teh pre/pro is not out yet but on the board are; integrated amp (available), CDP (available), pre/pro, 7ch amp, integrated surround sound processor/amplifier, and a universal player.
