  • Rega Aethos Integrated Amplifier...Rega's very exceptional new model

    I've been waiting years for this amplifier. Even before there was a tantilising rumour that Rega had started designing the elusive amp that sits between the Elicit R ($3799) and the Osiris ($13,995), it was a near constant lament from customers - 'but why doesn't Rega make an amp at the $5K - $7K range. I love the Osiris but it's out of budget and I need something more than the Elicit R'. 

    Well it has arrived and it is beautiful. A newly designed casing that is solid and industrial but with some sexy curves that form cutouts to reveal the bulky heat sinks underneath.

    And how does it sound...well...it grips and it dictates yet its smoothness is alluring. Detail, tightness and extension in the bass is all there but there's also the lusciousness and enveloping blanket of sound that you only get with a Rega.

    The Aethos has set a new benchmark at this price point.

  • Rotel 1590 Pre and Power Amplifier ..The Hulk in an Iron Mask with velvet gloves

    In the end amplification is about electronics and physics ... the amplifier is the engine that drives your loudspeakers. It needs to make real amperage into a real reactive resistive load to proffer control over the electric motor that is a drive unit in the speaker and do so with the delicacy of modulation required to fulfill the demands of the musical signal so as to be realistically iterated to the listener.

    It dosn't matter how many watts the marketing department puts on the front panel of that colourfully boxed Surround Receiver, it is still going to sound rubbish when  music is actually played through it ...

    This Rotel combination weighs as much as a good 1000cc plus motorcycle engine, and has a similiar aim of power and control. 

    Unlike the internal combustion engine this will last a generation or two and is unlikely to require any maintanance.

  • PrimaLuna EVO 400

    This amplifier replaces the Dialogue Premium HP, PrimaLuna's highly regarded original flagship integrated. It builds on the superior performance of the HP by tweaking things here and there but retaining what makes PrimaLuna special - superb Tube amplifier performance.

    At 70 Watts per channel, the power of this amp may sound modest but don't be fooled this is a very capable machine that can power the hungriest of speakers. 

    Upgraded swiss made wiring inside the unit and german made resistors...that haven't spared any expense with the makeup of the circuitry and the design of the amp.

  • Creek Voyage i20 amplifier ... too sexy for it's shirt.

    A good stereo amplifier is a lifelong companion and Michael Creek has been designing and manufacturing amplifiers for his whole life.

    We love amplifiers to a fault. We are the children in the sweetshop of this marketplace and we behave badly with very little sensible restraint when it comes to putting beautiful and musical things on display on the shelves of Carlton Audio Visual.

    The European made Voyage i20 combines an analogue pre-amplifier and digital to analogue converter with a power amplifier, powered by a unique stabilised power supply, housed in a slim and attractive case.

  • PS Audio DirectStream DAC ($9860 with Bridge II streamer)

    We're huge fans of the digital magic that the folks over at PS Audio weave. From the first moment we heard the Perfect Wave, we knew there was some black magic under the bonnet. Now with the DirectStream, PS Audio have taken it to another level, producing one of the most fluent music communicators we've heard in quite some time.

  • Rotel Michi X5 ... the irresistible force

    If this was an asteroid on its to hit the planet then it may well cause the extinction of the mammals. At 50kg it is one of the most massive single box amplifiers that I have ever encountered and is gorgeous.

    First encounter was playing it through a pair of Dynaudio Confidence 60 sourced by a Marantz SA10. Fresh out of the box the Michi X5 lacks the glare and oft harsh treble of many of the super amplifier designs without being salubrious like a Musical Fidelity X8i. It has needless to say terrific poise with no overhang or bloom on these critical speakers and an instant rendition of space that is immensely gratifying.

    I dived straight in with Patti Smith Horses and her raw proto punk seventies energy was immaculately recreated with this powerhouse running the system. 

    The amplifier is physically gorgeous, although some may find the black looks unsettling in use it is both tactile and entertaining. The new Michi Trademark display that suddenly illuminates in the panel is excellent fun.

  • Naim Uniti Nova

    At Carlton Audio Visual we're not normally ones to jump up and down at a $8700 amplifier and streamer all-in-one unit. But this one by Naim Audio is different, much different.

    A sublime combination of musicality and clarity. Music jumps alive in the hands of this unit. It's fast, clear and precise but it doesn't compromise that with any sort of harshness to the sound.

    A brilliant performer if you're after a compelling reproduction in an 'all-in-one' box.

  • Musical Fidelity Nu-VIsta 600......200 Watts of Nuvistor valve goodness

  • Musical Fidelity M8Xi Amplifier ... a Goliath amongst us

    I think there was a designer in Musical Fidelity who had been spending too much of his life on caffeine and narcotics and marathon listening sessions who in a fit of mad innovation made this massive battle tank of an amplifier with every wet dream specification and design feature for an audiophile fantasy.

    If it was a tank it would be Ferdinand Porsche's Panzerkampfwagen VII Maus 188 ton Hitlerite monster that fortunately never went into service. It makes no less than 550 watts per channel into loudspeaker systems with an impedance of 8 ohms, while with a 4 ohm load the figure is a remarkable 870 watts per channel. The manufacturer even goes so far as to speak of even higher power reserves, namely a peak of no less than 1.6 kW at 2 ohms.

  • PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier

    This made an immediate and frankly stunning effect when I added it to the system pictured. Before we had been running the PS Audio Transport, DAC, and power amplifier together as a minimalist high powered high current set of kit readily able to drive the highly transparent Monitor Audio Platinum II loudspeakers. Adding the BHK Signature Preamp bought the system to life. The music leapt holographically into the room and was just a consuming experience. Whereas before it had been good, but somehow unmoving, now one was just swept up and carried off by the music. Brilliant. Learn More
