Integrated Amplifiers

integrated amplifier

Integrated amplifiers are what most people think of when they think of an amplifier - they have both a pre and power amplifier in a single chassis. Features vary, but you generally find a few inputs on the back, speaker outputs and a volume control. Most people tend to start with an integrated amplifier, but many high end systems still keep all the amplification in one box.

  • Rega Aethos Amplifier ... purity by design

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    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.

    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.

  • 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

  • Naim Uniti Nova, Special Trade-in Deal

    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.

  • 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.
