T.H.E. SHOW 2011, Las Vegas (January 6th, 2011) – New Zealand hi fi amplifier manufacturer Perreaux is proud to announce the international release of their Audiant 80i integrated amplifier.
Capable of producing 80W with 8 Ohm loudspeakers (130W with 4 Ohm), the Audiant 80i integrated amplifier continues the tradition of previous Perreaux pieces – engaging, purposeful and controlled.
The 80i features a custom-designed 400VA toroid power transformer and, along with the low-impedance power supply, provides low electrical and mechanical noise while offering well-regulated voltage and current on-demand.
Incorporating an upsampling 24-bit/96kHz digital to analogue converter (DAC) with USB, optical & coaxial digital inputs, a touch button interface and contemporary styling – the Audiant 80i is squarely targeted at today’s modern audiophile.
The Audiant integrated amplifier also includes an onboard moving-magnet (MM) phono stage, keeping vinyl on the menu; as well as sporting a selectable home theatre input for seamless integration into cinema systems.
Basic control of computer music applications, such as iTunes and Windows Media Player, via the Audiant infrared (IR) remote control, dimmable LED backlighting of the touch button interface and standby power consumption under 1W for the energy conscious; are some of the nice touches included by the forward-thinking Perreaux team.
The 80i integrated amplifier is the first component in Perreaux’s new Audiant range and is available now from hi fi outlets around the world.
