Martin Mertens has posted a review of the Magnum Dynalab MD-301A integrated amplifier (€3500) at 6moons. His conclusions:

High resolving power didn’t get analytical but simply conveyed deep insights into the music as well as the quality of the recorded production and playback system. If you’re inclined to check out the MD-301, I recommend that you take your time.

Once you do, it’s all very impressive.
