It's that time of year again, hi fi magazines and audio publications handing out their Best of 2011 gear awards.
Flicking through the latest issue of Tone magazine, we were pleasantly surprised to discover they had awarded our Audiant 80i Integrated Amplifier "Best Stereo Amplifier" in the 2011 Best of the Year Tone Awards.
It's fantastic to have the hours of hard-work and dedication that went into making the Audiant 80i a reality recognised and rewarded in this way.
The 80i continues to be enjoyed and well-reviewed around the World, recently we received a letter from an ecstatic and very proud owner of an Audiant 80i integrated amplifier who writes:
“The sound is truly astonishing. The clarity and definition is extraordinary. On occasions, the sound is actually too good – one now hears the imperfections – the click of a piano pedal, or the performer's breathing.”
“Enough gushing. Thanks so much for reinvigorating my music...”
Receiving 'Best of the Year' awards are flattering and it's nice to have industry recognition, but it's the feedback and 'Thank you' letters like this that really make us smile.
Many thanks to Tone magazine for awarding the Audiant 80i Best Stereo Amplifier in 2011, to AB (you know who you are) for choosing Perreaux to rediscover your music, and to the many others who send us letters of thanks – you are why we're in this game.
