Audio Research VSI-60
This compact vacuum tube integrated amplifier gives that warm musical sound only tubes can offer with the performance that only comes from Audio Research's 38 years of design experience. 50 wpc into 8 or 4 ohm loads. Remote control, mono sub output. Black or silver faceplate.
Audio Research DSI-200
The DSi200 delivers 200 WPC continuously into an 8-ohm load, 400+ WPC dynamically into 8 ohms, and 800+ dynamically into 4 ohms. This allows the it to control large, power-hungry speakers with remarkable ease. All this is generated with almost no heat. The DSi200 is a fully balanced design offering two sets of balanced inputs and three sets of single-ended inputs. One set of single-ended inputs can be used as a normal line-level input or it can be converted into a home-theater passthrough. The heavy front panel features Volume and Input selectors flanking a vacuum-flourescent display.
The S-300i integrated amplifier combines a fully balanced, Class A preamplifier circuit with a stereo amplifier rated at 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 300 watts per channel into 4 ohms. Its circuit design borrows the Current Mode technology used in Krell's top-of-the-line Evolution amps and preamps. This technology delivers unequaled signal bandwidth, ensuring clear, powerful response from the deepest notes of the bass drum to the highest notes of the piccolo. A massive toroidal transformer makes the S-300i's amplifier section one of the most robust ever incorporated into an integrated amplifier.

The 24/192 Asynchronous USB Input has a major impact on the overall sound quality of the nova125 and represents a huge technological leap from the previous Nova and iNova. Asynchronous communication keeps digital jitter at bay by not relying on the audio clock in the computer, which can get thrown off time by the thousands of processes running in your operating system’s background. The USB input on the nova125 provides the best possible resolution, which furthers the efforts of the ESS Sabre DAC.
The Tube Buffer can be switched on via a button on the remote control to add a dose of warmth and take the hard edge off compressed audio sources like MP3s. The single 6N1P triode will last years for the average listener - it’s easy to change and inexpensive to replace.
The 125 watt per channel Power Amp is the newest generation of Class D technology. It takes audio performance to a whole new level with advances including extended bandwidth, improved dynamic range, and exceptionally low distortion. These high current output stages can comfortably drive any speaker load from 2 ohms. This amplifier has enough muscle to power any speaker you use and sounds great at any volume.
The Headphone Amp enables you to listen in solitude without sacrificing sound quality. Most headphones need more than the tiny amount of power that trickles out of the headphone jack from your computer or iPod. Plug your cans into the nova125 and hear what they sound like with copious amounts of undistorted power driving them.
Peachtree Nova 125
The ESS Sabre Upsampling DAC is the world’s first chipset designed from the ground up to eliminate the anti-musical, high amount of jitter that is commonly found in computers and digital streamers. Using a patented process called HyperstreamTM the Sabre DAC buffers the incoming digital bitstream and reclocks it from thousands of picoseconds of jitter to less than 3 picoseconds. That means your computer, smart phone, and streamer can have sonic performance equal to the world’s best CD players.
The MA6600 integrated amplifier teams a very low distortion, full function preamplifier with a potent 200 Watt per channel autoformer-coupled amplifier. The ability to accept an optional AM/FM/HD tuner module, the TM2, enables the MA6600 to become the first stereo receiver offered by McIntosh in over 15 years. Features include the exclusive McIntosh Power Assurance System, high output current capability, fiber-optic illuminated glass front panel, and ¼” Headphone Jack.

The amplifier has always been the heart of a hi-fi system, but for the new audio landscape, amplifiers need ‘brains’. The brain of the RA-12 is the Wolfson WM8740 24 bit/192kHz DAC, most often found in high-end audio products, and it ensures that the RA-12 extracts the full potential from its digital and Apple® authorised USB inputs. Traditional audio is not forgotten however so the RA-12 also provides four analogue line-level inputs and a phono input. The RA-12 can be controlled from its front panel buttons, via a remote handset, or via an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad. The RA-12 is however not just about versatility, it is a very high performance 60 Watts per channel amplifier that puts music at the top of its priorities.

The RA-1520 is a music lover’s amplifier and is most at home as part of a stand-alone stereo system. Its muscular 2 x 60 watt design is based upon nearly 50 years of our expertise in audio engineering and it delivers all of the musical performance the artist intended. Subtle nuances and large dynamics are both rendered faithfully from digital or analog sources. The RA-1520 includes a moving magnet phono input to accommodate your vinyl collection. To complete its functionality, as well as its superb performance capabilities, there are additional inputs for tuner, tape, CD and Aux. Large photo. Data sheet. Read The Absolute Sound review.
