  • Musical Fidelity M8-500S

    The M8-700 has received outstanding reviews and an enthusiastic reception from knowledgeable audiophiles. The combination of high power and cutting edge technical performance has proved a compelling combination. However some customers do not have the space for two large monoblocs and do not necessarily need that much power. For them we have designed the M8-500s. Pairing it with the matching M8 Preamp gives an amplification system fit of the highest levels of reproduction.

  • 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.

  • Musical Fidelity M6500i Integrated amplifier

    A beautiful beast of an integrated amplifier. 500 Watts of power that's capable of pulling your heart strings. A rich sound that's not shy. Vocals and solo instruments will sit centre stage and come out towards you.

    The Dual Mono design of this and the smaller M6si is very unusual. A completely symetrical circuit design that doesn't share components between the two sides of the amplifier. Meaning you get the benefits of a separate mono blocks within the single chassis of an integrated amp.

  • Musical Fidelity M8Spre Pre-Amplifier

    Musical Fidelity describe this Pre-amplifier as one with no limits. 

    The inside of this machine looks more like the circuitry on a dual mono integrated amplifier rather than a pre-amplifier. Two big toroidal transformer power supplies sit front and centre. That's unusual for a pre-amplifier and gives it an extraordinary sense of heft and musical importance.

  • PrimaLuna EVO 400, Integrated amplifier

    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.

  • Naim SUPERNAIT 3 ... an amplifier for a generation ...

    A classic integrated amplifier that takes it cues from its celebrated 30 year heritage. The best Nait amplifier to date.

    Naim put the money into their componentry where it counts and where there is auditive sound benefit, not where corporate bosses enforce an obscure cost/benefit analysis. That's why Naim has such a cult following in the HiFi industry. And their reputation is again reinforced with this super amplifier. On sheer tactility and product feel you know thios is going to be a really special amplifier before you even switch it on. Think a good modern Bentley ...

    Here's Kevin from Upscale Audio talking about the Supernait 3...and SPIVs and commissions in the HiFi business (Carlton Audio Visual agrees with Kevin in this respect)

  • Audio Research i50, 50W Vacuum Tube Amplifier

    The new Audio Research i50 integrated amplifier is the new entry level offering from US tube manufacturer, Audio Research. 

    Audio Research is the sort of brand that hardened audiophiles lust after, drool over and buckle at the knees for...myself included. The sort of effortless, unadultered, rich sound that keeps us back late at night playing tracks that we've heard thousands of times before because they suddenly sound so real with Audio Research. 

    Aesthetically, Audio research has a timeless elegance to it not only because of the valves but also the brushed aluminium finish. There's no plastic add ons with this brand or ostentatious flashing, multi-coloured lights...

    Like a German piano from the early 20th century, you lust after them because they're beautiful pieces of furniture but also because their sound is rich & warm yet clearer and more natural than others.

    For many people, like myself, Audio Research is an aspirational brand, something we hope, with a bit of luck will grace our living rooms one day. But with the new offering of the i50, we hope that day will come sooner for us all. 

    Audio Research has spent years perfecting this design so as not to compromise on their stingent standards of quality and tone but to nevertheless offer something at a more modest price level. You can opt out of a built-in phono stage or DAC module depending on your needs as well. The basic, no extras version will be $8995 and is expected to reach Aussie shores mid to late September.

  • Auralic Altair G2.1 Streaming DAC preamplifier

    The Altair G2.1 is the unit in Auralic's range that does it all. A Preamplifier, DAC and Streamer with options to put in a 2TB hard drive and even a CD ripper. 

    The Preamplifier is also a full blown analogue preamplifier. Not only does it have the analogue line and Moving Magnet phono inputs, it also doesn't simply convert these into digital signals within the chassis. Rather they are kept completely separate from the digital circuitry. Also the volume control is an analogue design based on resistive ladder construction. A less noisy, cleaner choice than other designs out there. Such all-in-one units have tended to use cheaper less fullfilling preamplifier modules that I normally recommend customers to bypass. That's not the case here.

    Also a superior power supply and thick copper shielded chassis with isolating feet mean that noise and vibrations are kept to an absolute minimum. Couple that with a pair of super accurate clocks reducing jitter and this is a unit that stands above others in its category.

    Clean, effortless sound and a unit that ticks all the boxes.

  • 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.

  • Leema Tucana II Anniversary

    Leema Tucana II was one of our favourite integrated amplifiers. It's now been replaced by the Anniversary model which we've just unpacked and put on the floor for demonstration. In Leema's words this is a 'hot rod' model of the Tucana II with low resistance double weight copper circuit boards, Nichicon muse capacitors, Noratel extra quiet transformers and hand matched transistors. What looks the same from the outside (besides the little Anniversary badge) is actually a souped up version under the hood. Made in Wales, Leema are a fastidious true audiophile company proud of their welshness and passionate about audio. Learn More

  • 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
  • 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.
