Building the 250i Anniversary Edition

By any measure, 40 years in business is a milestone worth celebrating. To that end, we have selected the Eloquence 250i integrated amplifier as the first unit from our lineup to be given a special flourish.

It was always going to be a challenging task to improve on this already exceptionally designed unit, and we certainly did not want to turn it into some gimmicky marketing exercise. In the end, we decided to focus primarily on squeezing the very last ounce of sonic performance out of the unit with only a small marketing flourish allowed by affixing a custom designed metallic badge to each front panel. The production run is strictly limited to 50 pcs and every 40th Anniversary Edition amplifier will be supplied with a signed and numbered certificate of Aunthenticity.


40th Anniversary 250i Update

Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 250iWe're still chipping away at the Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 250i making the final adjustments trying to eek out every ounce of magic.

It won't be too long now until the 40th Anniversary edition of the eloquence 250i integrated amp becomes a reality.

Although, before we finalise everything, I would like to ask what upgrades you would like to see in the 40th Anniversary 250i.


Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 250i

Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 250iLast year we promised limited edition models to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. The first amplifier to receive the limited edition 40th Anniversary treatment is the eloquence 250i integrated amplifier.

The 250i is already a stellar amplifier, having received a number of awards and outstanding reviews, but we couldn't help but challenge ourselves to see if we could enhance its magic.

We've spent countless hours tweaking the 250i, auditioning various capacitors, resistors, cables, connectors, ICs... the list goes on.
