Perreaux Audiant 80i Integrated Amplifier

With listening, Perreaux realised that Audiant 80i was proof positive that their core philosophy is correct. Form and function combines to create a hugely satisfying amplifier. The appearance is aesthetically forward-thinking while the sound continues the tradition of previous Perreaux pieces – engaging, purposeful and controlled.

Since 1974 Perreaux have been manufacturing high fidelity components of exceptional quality in New Zealand. Audiant 80i proves again, that commitment and passion can triumph over geography and high expectations. The elegant implementation of MOSFET output devices and Class-A signal stages give Audiant 80i a potent, dynamic and sophisticated sonic signature.

Merge their high musical standards with the versatile features of Audiant 80i and you have an amplifier ready for now, and the future. A variety of digital inputs enable you make the most of the superb 24-bit/96kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC).

You can ease Audiant 80i into a home theatre system to extract any missing detail from your cinema experience. Or you can put the needle on the record with the knowledge that the phono stage has been extensively tested by their music obsessed team in the deep south.

Once again Perreaux bring you a ground-breaking amplifier that will reconnect you to the thing that is, in these busy days, so often overlooked – the MUSIC.
