Our journey started on our return from the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. One over-riding aspect that came through was the requirement for a medium-sized, high-quality integrated amplifier that featured all the Perreaux hallmarks, but importantly, was still affordable.
We immediately started brainstorming on how we could bring the vision into reality. Central to our culture is our belief that we can all play an important part with new developments. Our designs are never fixed in stone... ideas are constantly thrown into the mix and vigorous arguments are frequent. The best ideas get through and float to the top... bad ones sink and disappear.
Key to the development process is having a pretty thick skin. A good dollop of humility is also helpful. If you really feel passionate about your idea and at first you don't succeed then try and try again... eventually you're either going to get it through or you're going to get your tail feathers blown off! If you ever visit us when this is going on, you'd be excused for thinking that the company is on the brink of a meltdown! Certainly not, it's just that we're all really passionate about audio, what we do, and never want to accept mediocrity.
When you invest in Perreaux, you're getting the very finest that we can develop for your budget. Today, as we enter the final month before releasing the new amplifier, the excitement is really starting to build!
I can't wait to introduce to you to the new Audiant integrated amplifier.
