Further information: 

For sale is the Vitus SIA-030. It's 6 months old and was purchased brand new in Australia. Still under factory warranty.  

 

Retailing in aus for close to sixty five K!


I'm asking half price! 

This is the finest integrated amplifier I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. It's so good in fact that the unit is being sold on due to upgrading to Pre-Power! 
What's the only possible thing better than a Vitus Integrated? 

 

Although this has been only something to get me through while I await my power amps which have been on holiday for upgrades overseas since prior to the pandemic. 


It's undeniably the best sound you'll hear, it is surprisingly cool considering it's class A and it will power just about any speaker. 
I'd used this baby with 86 DB two way speakers in large rooms and it didn't skip a beat. 
The unit comes in its original box and can travel anywhere in the world. It's power supply is rated 230v. It weighs a tonne though so please keep in mind that shipping won't be cheap. 
Depending on timing this will likely cost around $500-1k to ship.
This beauty only just was released at the Munich high end show in 2019 and it sold out quickly around the world. This will have a long lifespan and it's pretty much brand spanking new.
PLUS - it's 63kg 


Some notes from Positive Feedback

 

SUMMARY

All the features I discussed are presented at a very high level. It's a proper high-end device. It is also clearly a custom proposition, different from what one can hear with other amplifiers from such brands as McIntosh, Soulution, or Ancient Audio, closer to what—for example—Dan D'Agostino and Kondo propose. I do not distinguish tube and solid-state devices on purpose. Each of them has something special to offer, but in top high-end class they have more in common than you might think.

The SIA-030 is relatively small by super-integrated standards, and yet it executes a perfect control over speakers, not only when in AB class, but also in the A class operation. The AB class allows you to play in large rooms with difficult speakers. But class A is more natural and credible. And that's good—this is about choice. Because SIA-030 is a fantastically equipped integrated amplifier with beautiful sound. It's the best integrated amplifier, maybe next to the Soulution 530 I've ever heard. Our highest GOLD Fingerprint award is just a formality, despite the fact that the SIA-030 is one of the cheapest (!) amplifiers from this manufacturer.

DESIGN

SIA-030 is a stereo integrated amplifier, that belongs to the "Signature" series. The company offers its components divided into four series. It starts with "Reference," then there is "Signature," then "Masterpiece," and finally "Design Studio Series." Products from the latter have not yet been presented, it's a project that have been developed for many years by Hans Ole and once ready the components from this line will be produced upon order.

Technique

I described the appearance of the tested amplifier in the introduction, now let me just add that the sides of the device are actually huge heat-sinks. PCBs with output stages and transistors are bolted to the heat-sinks on the inside In this way, the left and right channels are far apart, which reduces crosstalk. As many as six complementary pairs of transistors work there, but not all of them operate in the same way. As the owner of Vitus told me, this is his original idea, which took him ten minutes to come up, and then a year to implement.

The difference I'm talking about is part of the idea for two modes of operation—"Classic" and "Rock." In the former the amplifier works with only one complementary pair of transistors per channel. This simplifies the design and counteracts the creation of a feedback impulse from the transistors (transistors inside the housing resemble a coil, and the coil's characteristic feature is that after we feed it a signal, some of it goes back towards the source). The other two pairs operate as a trans-impedance section, or current source. After switching to the "Rock" mode, which takes several seconds, before the parameters of the transistors are established, they are configured as a classic push-pull amplifier with three parallel pairs of transistors. And that's the whole secret. Let's add that these are bipolar transistors, complementary pairs of 2SA1216 + 2SC2922.

entry level integrated 

 

easily outmatched by Rotel etc

 

ahahhahahahhahahahahaha :) 

 

i have Vitus Pre and Power and they are pretty much end game 

 

Beauty of tubes without the headaches

Great piece of gear and an absolute second to non seller. I’ve purchased many items from him over the years.

Buy with confidence.

      I've had this integrated gathering dust in my cupboard for too long, awaiting fitting out a cottage which is now connected to a Sonos sound bar.
       
      It's in great running order, no dings and scratches and sounded great on the pair of Paradigm Signature S1's I was running it with previously. Remote also included, barely used.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Fairlight, 2094 State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Upgraded to a March P252 Further information:
      Selling my used integrated amplifier Denon PMA-720. I'm the second owner, not sure how old it really is. Sounds great and works alright but left channel sometimes drops out and you have to fiddle with the selector. I had it cleaned and serviced professionally two years ago, but it didn't help with this issue unfortunately.
       
      Has served me well but I've upgraded so it's time for it to find a new home.

      Why Buy?
      Voted by What Hi-Fi? in 2018 as one of the best 19 stereo amplifiers in the magazine’s lifetime, the Audiolab 8000A is a classic British design that offers plenty of everything: power, transparency, dynamic range.
      I have been the only owner of this excellent unit since purchase in about 1997. Mid-last year I invested $440 in significant maintenance, repairs and upgrade, not just to achieve sonic excellence, but to ensure it will last for another 20 years. (Work was done by acclaimed technician, William Crampton at Factory Audio in Canberra – see statement of work for details of his work on this amp.)
      No significant marks or blemishes at all, but unfortunately one button (the ‘Speakers’ button, which I have never needed to use) was lost many years ago.
       
      Specifications
      Power output: 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms (stereo) (but mine hit 64W – see Williams note on the statement of work) Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.05% Input sensitivity: 0.11mV (MC), 2mV (MM), 100mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 75dB (MC), 78dB (MM), 80dB (line) Channel separation: 60dB (line) Output: 100mV (line), 0.7V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4 ohms to 16 ohms Dimensions: 445 x 74 x 335mm Weight: 7.6kg
