Marty's Fear of Ice

It's easy to become set in our ways. We have a large family and we have always struggled to find something we could enjoy together. Some months ago we tried ice speed skating lessons. The improvement in the children's ability has been dramatic since then and everyone looks forward to attending a weekly session.


New Product Reviews

Perreaux is well represented in countries all around the world and thanks to some hard work from our international partners we are able to take you on a quick trip around central Europe with three exciting new product reviews.


Update on New Developments

No matter how strong our current lineup may be, there is always room for improvement and more work to be done. At Perreaux our customers are constantly asking and as such we are acutely aware of the weight of expectation and anticipation around any new developments. That’s one of the reasons why we are now talking more in terms of new product development. In doing so, we are becoming more visible for all to see where we are heading as we inch ever closer towards release of 2 new products, the Eloquence Loudspeaker and the Audiant Phono Preamplifier.


Audiant 80i 40th Anniversary Edition

Not everyone can afford to own something like the Prisma series, SM6MKII and 350 Pre/Power combo. At the other end of our product line up, the limited edition, Audiant 80i, 40th Anniversary edition, still provides a spine tingling sensation.


Germany loves Eloquence 250i

Germany is world renowned for its strengths in engineering and hi tech manufacturing. They also appear to have a special affection for our flagship integrated amplifier, the eloquence 250i. Sales have been strong for the special 40th anniversary collector’s edition.


First Shipment to Vietnam

Vietnam is surging ahead in leaps and bounds. It holds a special fascination to me on account of it's colourful past, firstly under French colonial rule and later in the 70's, with the US lead, Vietnam War. It speaks volumes of a people who have suffered as much as they have, to once again be re-emerging and beginning to realise their full potential.


Old Books and Elevator Music

Apple have just released the iPhone 6 with digital wallet feature and also the Apple watch which can monitor and share your heartbeat with others. Cool stuff, but not really game changers. Nice to be connected to the internet, but sometimes it is even nicer to disconnect! I drop our kids off at a bus stop in the mornings and the number of who now stand around motionless staring at and fingering their screens saddens me. Hey kids, try kicking a ball around, or something really left field...talking to one another!


Real Sound

Who can remember when the Microwave oven first appeared on the scene? What about all the cookbooks that appeared specifically designed to cater for this new phenomenon. Roll forward the years and what is the microwave used for - reheating a cup of coffee or a meal which has been set aside! We all still use an electric kettle and our ovens.


The Mother Lode

Our home town of Dunedin, New Zealand grew rich and powerful on account of gold being discovered in the 1800’s. Miners arrived on tall sailingships in their thousands, in search of the “mother lode” of gold which would transform them from rags to riches. Dunedin quickly grew to become the most significant centre of commerce.


A Clockwork Orange - Eloquence series loudspeaker


For too long we’ve had to be content to allow others to make all the noise. The time has come to offer a loudspeaker befitting our powerful Eloquence series amplifiers. We’ve already made most of the big decisions and Oh my friends these are going to rock your world!
