StereoLife reviews the Norma IPA-140B

This amplifier will not bet on any one thing, offering a holistic approach to sound. However, I don't think it sounds boring. The bass is deep and resilient. The midrange is neutral, detailed, and delicately, but only slightly thickened (just enough to get the impression that the vocalists are robots and not flesh and blood people). High frequencies are selective and nicely polished. On top of that, we have a vast reserve of power and something that will be the absolute icing on the cake - holographic soundstage, confirming all "stereotypes" about full dual-mono amplifiers for many listeners.
