Audiant 80i Stereo Integrated Amplifier

Audiant 80i Stereo Integrated Amplifier

Audiant 80i Stereo Integrated Amplifier The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award

The Audiant 80i is a stereo integrated amplifier equipped with an asynchronous USB DAC and is capable of delivering 80W of pure, distortion free power per channel.

Audiant 80i features eight stereo inputs, including asynchronous USB, coaxial & optical digital inputs, along with a MM phono input for a turntable and a selectable home theatre loop.

Incorporating an upsampling 24-bit/96kHz digital to analogue converter (DAC), Audiant 80i uses ESS Technology's Reference Sabre ES9006 DAC for accurate sound reproduction of all your digital sources.

With listening, we realised that Audiant 80i was proof positive that our core philosophy is correct. Form and function combines to create a hugely satisfying amplifier. The appearance is aesthetically forward-thinking while the sound continues the tradition of previous Perreaux pieces – engaging, purposeful and controlled.

Since 1974 Perreaux have been manufacturing high fidelity components of exceptional quality in New Zealand. Audiant proves again, that commitment and passion can triumph over geography and high expectations. The elegant implementation of MOSFET output devices and Class-A signal stages give Audiant 80i a potent, dynamic and sophisticated sonic signature.

Merge our high musical standards with the versatile features of Audiant and you have an amplifier ready for now, and the future. A variety of digital inputs enable you make the most of the superb 24-bit/96kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC).

You can ease Audiant into a home theatre system to extract any missing detail from your cinema experience. Or you can put the needle on the record with the knowledge that the phono stage has been extensively tested by our music obsessed team in the deep south.

Once again Perreaux bring you a ground-breaking amplifier that will reconnect you to the thing that is, in these busy days, so often overlooked – the MUSIC.
