Esteemed UK audio mag Hi-Fi Choice have just reviewed the Perreaux Audiant DP32 USB DAC preamp and 100p stereo power amp in their December issue. They rate the Audiant pre-power combo a massive 10/10 (5/5 each) and award the pairing the coveted 'Hi-Fi Choice Editor's Choice' gold award.
To say we're 'totally chuffed' with the Editor's Choice award is an understatement. Recognition of this calibre doesn't come around that often and confirms the hours and hours of sweat, tears and determination that went into the development of the DP32 and 100p has created something truly magical.
The UK is the bastion of hi-fi manufacturing and it is extremely difficult to obtain 5 star reviews, or Editor's Choice awards for that matter, from UK publications – especially so when you're a foreign brand from the other side of the World.
Our UK partner Audio Emotion put it like this:
“Once in every 15 or so years the "stars align" for a manufacturer and a reviewer from a prestigious UK magazine when he becomes totally enchanted with the product.”
Reviewed by Channa Vithana, he was immediately struck by the DP32/100p combinations "innate sense of control and precision", finding a "pervading, lilting sweetness to the sound that has a 'rightness' to it" while the "music is always enjoyably listenable."
Listening to Kraftwerk's Tour de France Soundtracks Channa commented:
“Together, the Perreaux pre-power amplifier combination was able to give a wonderfully immersive experience of a seminal piece of modern music.”
Reviewing the DP32 USB DAC preamp and 100p power amp combination Channa discovered simply:
“It's one of those famous combinations that let's you get on with enjoying the music...”
A big thanks to Channa and the team at Hi-Fi Choice for a fantastic review. We're ecstatic with the Editor's Choice award and pleased that you enjoyed your time with the Audiant DP32 and 100p.
