  • Synthesis A40 Virtus amplifier. KT66 love

    A lovely piece of Italian craftmanship to help you have a love affair with your music. If you listen to a sad song this is likely to make you cry. Not an amp for the cold and analytical. Learn More
  • PS Audio M1200 Monoblock hybrid class A amplifier pair ... blue glowing valve built in.

    Power corrupts they say ... but in this case it provides for control and authority. 600 watts into 8 ohms and 1200 watts into 4 ohms. A unique combination of ultra-linear, high-current, ICE Edge Class D technology for the output stage; and a discrete, Class-A vacuum tube for the all-important input stage. Learn More

  • Marantz PM10 Amplifier... an expression of engineering perfection

    I absolutely loved the Marantz ads from the 1980's ... here was a brand that was head and shoulders above the mainstream brands such as Technics and Pioneer in sound quality and engineering that was being marketed with quite uncommon flair.

    The PM10 is the current top of the range integrated amplifier from Marantz and is one of those  components that you hear through to the music rather than being a device that overtly contributes. It is happy driving very serious Sonus faber et al loudspeakers with no apparent strain to very high levels and is a core of inner strength and resolution for a high end audio system.

    These stereo components are amongst the finest that have ever been made by this company. they are constructed under the severe tutelage of Ken Ishiwata, an original disciple of Saul Marantz, who has alas passed away but occasionally graced the small places of Carlton Audio Visual.

    These are not inexpensive components, but you would only be destined to purchase them once in your life ....

  • 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.

  • Denon PMA-S1 integrated Japanese Amplifier

    This is a rare amplifier and Rab's favourite. A classic, Japanese built elegant monster. We believe this is the only one in Australia.

    It has sat in Rab's favourite demo room for many years and he has in particular loved its pairing with a set of Monitor Audio Platinum 500s. As we're moving around our demo rooms a little, it's time to find a good home for this chiseled jaw beauty...

    The extension in the bass that this amp can produce is incredible and its mids are smooth and mellow. The highs are agile, brilliant but not harsh.

    This is a whole different ball game from the commonly available Denon amps. It was a classic as soon as it came out of the factory.

  • Audio Research LS28SE Pre Amplifier

    The LS28 has been a favourite pre-amp of mine for a number of years trumped only by Audio Research's Ref 6SE. But that Ref 6SE stays put (generally) in our reference system. It's the LS28 that gets moved around, played and loved in a whole lot of combinations. It was sad to see our demo unit go but it's gone to a good home where it'll be appreciated.

    The new LS28SE has the same musicality and relaxed engagement but even more clarity, focus and quickness. It's taking the expensive gold coupling caps from the REF 6SE and the same wiring and parts upgrades that the REF6SE went through.

  • Audio Research Reference 75 SE Power Amplifier ... take me home

    There are only a couple of these left now in Australia and they're a classic piece of Hi-Fi already. Once they're gone, there will be no more...

    Our Nicks' absolute favourite product of all time, a product he says he would struggle to ever part with. Tattslotto or not.

    To sing its praises higher again, even the reviewer from Stereophile wouldnt let it leave his system. As quoted below.

    "John Atkinson has said that there is no greater praise a reviewer can give a component than to purchase it for use in his own reference system. And although I loved my time with the Reference 75, and felt it equaled or exceeded the performance of my Reference 110 overall, I still love my Ref 110. With the decline of the financial-services industry in the recent meltdown, I'm earning a fraction of what I did 10 years ago, even as I have one child beginning college this year and another not far behind. I can't justify the luxury of purchasing a new stereo amplifier this year."

    "The hell with it. I'm buying the Audio Research Reference 75"

  • Audio Research Ref160M "The best amplifier in the world"

    Every now and then one gets the privilege of being in custody of something that is a work of absolute beauty and performance ... having a pair of these on demonstration is the High Fidelity equivalent of a violinist being rendered with a Stradivarius by a patron.

    Putting them into the Sonus faber Aida 2 system immediately bought the musicians into the room ... I have a particular opera recording that was sold in by Hartleys in Melbourne in 1957 that I procured in a lost corner of a curio store from a deceased estate. Playing this with these amplifiers Puccini and la Boheme were born again in the space ... time travel is a reality with a system like this ... yes we cried a little.

  • Audio Research Ref 6 Special Edition

    The Reference 6SE replaces the Reference 6 and offers the highest performance ever available in a single-chassis preamplifier. Benefitting from the development that went into the Reference 160-series amplifiers, and the latest Reference 750SEL, the 6SE incorporates a myriad of new parts that have been judiciously incorporated into its design. The final 6SE would not have been possible without these revolutionary amplifiers.
