This is a stellar pre/power duo in which the musical rewards justify both the asking price and the complexity of the design. Above all, the music flows freely with natural, unforced dynamics and an exceptionally natural sense of rhythm and timing. While the VX-5 offers ample power, the KX-5 pre is easy to use with well thought-out facilities. It’s nothing less than a truly outstanding amplifier combination.
