For this month's meeting we have a new presenter from the Hi Fi industry. First time to the club David Corazza from 'Sound and Music', will be showcasing the new Perreaux 200iX integrated amplifier to the Australian market. With the re-launch of the company, Perreaux is keen to re-establish itself with a new line up of solid state amplifiers.


Based in New Zealand, Perreaux has for over 40 years been manufacturing MOSFET based hi fi amplifiers, hand-made with individually selected components. They have almost single handedly championed the sonic virtues of MOSFET based amplification.


The importer, Sound and Music, has also introduced to the Australian market a new brand of speaker from Finland. Amphion is a name that is not so familiar to us but are well established in Europe. David will be demonstrating a tall floor standing model from the Amphion range.


The Krypton3 is a innovative three-way speaker that houses a 1 inch Titanium Tweeter, two 8 inch Paper Mids and a 10 inch Aluminium Woofer per box. The three-way design is configured with the two midranges in a cardioid enclosure placed vertically above and below the tweeter. Incorporated in this design is the U/D/D technology. Uniformly Directive Diffusion helps to keep their clarity and naturalness, and reduces unwanted sound reflections from both side and back walls. Side mounted woofers (in a vented enclosure) can be positioned facing inside or outside (for a broader soundstage) to each other.


We are in for a pretty exiting night of Hi Fi, with a new amplifier from Perreaux to a new brand of speaker from Finland, and a new presenter who promises to bring along a special piece of equipment with a very limited production run. So don't forget to book yourself in to reserve your seat.

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Wetherill Park State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, Cash, EFT, other equipments... Reason for selling: Upgrade Working Great, this refined and powerfull amp is made in New Zealand by the well known Perreaux, a renowned maker of high quality, high-end audiophile audio.
      There is only a small visual damage in the letter "R" (see picture), only visible if looking close. That is why the price is half of the same model on used market and 1/4 of a similar new one. 
      I may accept small speakers or DAC to trade.
