Review: Earthquake Cinenova Grande 5 Channel Multichamp

Category: Amplifiers

To begin my musical tastes tend to be eclectic, just about all types of music. I have lived with the Cinenova Grande for about 2 years now and have enjoyed every moment. First it offered much more detail then the receiver I upgraded from and when I went to a total separates system it really came "alive." Warmth of sound is something I enjoy, however living in an area with very bad power I had quite a bit of noise floor which the Signature 7000 remedied.

The strengths of the Cinenova Grande are build & sound detail quality. With the spec's it has clipping and distortion just aren't issues. The only downside this piece has is its shear mass, about 140 pounds! If I were to ask for on feature that would be balanced connections, however on the other hand I'm not sold on balanced connections but it would be nice to have the option.

Yes I would buy this a heartbeat!
