Audiant 80i 40th Anniversary Edition Released

40 years in business. Who would have thought!

As you’ll be aware, we’ve already released our flagship Eloquence 250i integrated as a limited edition item (50 pcs). It is with great pleasure that we offer the Audiant 80i, as a 40th anniversary limited edition model (100 pcs) to complete our offerings.

So how to improve on a unit that we spent an extraordinary amount of time designing to be the very best it can be? It was a very challenging task indeed. The major sonic aspect that we felt we could make was to add even more oomph to the power supply, by further increasing the size of the mains toroidal transformer. In effect the 80i 40th edition will deliver considerably more power now than 80w. This increased reserve of power gives the 40th unit higher levels of authority over connected loudspeakers and a more convincing and realistic overall performance for today’s demanding listener. Once again we affixed a custom designed metallic badge to the front panel. The production run is strictly limited to 100 pcs and every 40th Anniversary Edition amplifier will be supplied with an individually signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.

The 80i 40th Anniversary Edition features the following:

  • Upgraded custom designed mains toroidal transformer to highest specification possible for the unit frame size.
  • Highest spec amplifier to binding post internal cabling
  • Custom designed and manufactured front panel badge featuring the wording Limited Edition 1974 - 2014
  • Individually signed and numbered (total run 100 pcs) certificate of authenticity to accompany each Limited Edition amplifier

These units have already become collector’s items and will only ever appreciate in value in the years ahead.

Both Units are available for order now.

Here then are the first images of the 40th Anniversary Audiant 80i Limited Edition
