Reviewer Jörg-Peter Schimmel couldn't believe how tube-like the sound of the 250i integrated amp is...
“If I did not know better, I would have guessed in a blind test it was a tube amp...”
“...The Perreaux 250i eloquence is so close to the tube sound like no amplifier before him in my listening room.”
Jörg-Peter enjoyed the "enormously powerful" and "big sound" of the eloquence 250i and found that its 250 Watts was "enough power for any situation".
When testing the headphone output of the 250i, Jörg-Peter discovered there was more than enough power to drive his AKG K701 headphones and was pleasantly surprised with the sound commenting:
“The AKG delivered a sound that I otherwise know only from external headphone amplifiers. A great performance!”
Thank you to Thomas at Genuin Audio, the Perreaux distributor in Germany, for providing the review sample and the outstanding support.
