First Shipment to Vietnam

Vietnam is surging ahead in leaps and bounds. It holds a special fascination to me on account of it's colourful past, firstly under French colonial rule and later in the 70's, with the US lead, Vietnam War. It speaks volumes of a people who have suffered as much as they have, to once again be re-emerging and beginning to realise their full potential.


2014 Munich High End Audio Show report

There is an old song which goes.... 

"it's a long long way to Tipperary".

With a total travel time in excess of 25 hours between New Zealand and Germany, it would have to rank amongst the longest air journeys in the world. We had exhibited at Munich in 2013, so we felt this time around it was ok to sit this one out. In our abscence, our German distributor,  Genuin Audio did a superb job of exhibiting Perreaux and their other lines.

Trip to Munich High End 2013

High End Munich 2013The best aspect of travel is experiencing how the other half live. Munich 2013 is a good opportunity to gain insights and to stop by distributors in other countries on the way to and from Germany. My first stop leaving New Zealand was Hong Kong.

Hong Kong

HK is a seething megalopolis alive... buildings, cars, people and construction cranes are everywhere. The dynamic pace of life is quite an experience and being a part of its vibrancy is invigorating. Our HK distributor and his Chinese business partner spared no effort; taking care of everything for me. In return, I tried my best to listen and respond to the points they raised..

Musical Revelations in Melbourne

Midas AV B&W 800 and PrismaLast week brought a delightful new tone to the Perreaux dynamic. My role as account manager lead me to visit a new distributor in the tremendous city of Melbourne, Australia. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. The gentlemen at Midas AV have partnered with Perreaux to pounce on the ever expanding Australian market. Combining their dedication to superior sound and their depth of knowledge in hi fi, with the range of equipment at their disposal, the sky isn't the limit – Nick, Louie and Stan can create a system that will push you clear through the clouds.

I have sat in front of some fairly astonishing set ups. Earlier this year in Las Vegas I heard Wilson loudspeakers, a full McIntosh system and a pair of Vivid Giya powered by a top line Luxman. Financially these stereo are the things of dreams. Only the most affluent need even consider. In Melbourne I heard a stereo that, while a stretch, could well find a way into my house. If only I could convince my significant other that it was worth it. All I need to do is get her on a plane to Melbourne. Sit her in the upstairs demo room that has a pair of Bowers & Wilkins 800 powered by a mighty Perreaux Prisma 350 power amp, SM6 MkII pre and CD1 CD player. I am certain even my highly discerning better half would not be able to deny the revelatory experience provided by this stereo.


Consumer Electronics & Photo Expo 2011

Consumer Electronics & Photo Expo 2011The Consumer Electronics & Photo Expo was recently held in Moscow.  It is Russia's equivalent of CES and covers premium hi-fi as well as mobile & digital, photography, digital TV and audio/video.

Audiomania was in attendance representing Perreaux alongside some of their other lines, such as Waterfall and Penaudio loudspeakers, Nordost cables and Cold Ray vibration control.

On display was our Silhouette SXCD CD player, éloquence CDt transport with 250i integrated amplifier and Prisma 350 power amp.  The setup was mostly static with a lot of the gear not available for demonstration – in any case, it's still excellent exposure in Russia for the brands Audiomania represented at the show.

Audiomania have posted photos of Consumer Electronics & Photo Expo 2011 on Facebook, where you can see photos of their stand as well as coverage of other aspects of the show.

Congratulations Audiomania on what looked like a popular stand at a busy show.
