World’s Most Powerful Integrated Amplifier

New Zealand hi fi amplifier manufacturer Perreaux is proud to announce the launch of the eloquence range, including the 250i — the world’s most powerful Class-AB integrated amplifier.

“The 250i delivers in excess of 350 Watts of continuous power into an 8 Ohm load before clipping,” says Perreaux Engineering Manager, Clinton Jensen, “making it the most powerful Class-AB integrated amplifier in the world.”

The 250i features a custom-designed 1000VA toroid power transformer, with an XQ core and magnetic shielding, to provide low electrical and mechanical noise, while offering well-regulated voltage and enormous amounts of current.

A low-impedance power supply, along with high-current MOSFET output devices and Class-A signal stages, result in a sound that is “dynamic, commanding and resolute”; according to Martin van Rooyen, Perreaux Managing Director.

“Power delivery of the eloquence 250i Integrated Amplifier is totally effortless and remarkably clean,” continues van Rooyen, “you find yourself continually wanting to turn it up and enjoy the music.”

The eloquence 250i is a sophisticated amplifier with many features, including input volume trim, initial volume, maximum volume limit, home theatre bypass, non-invasive balance control, customizable input labels, and more — all accessible via the intuitive user interface.

Solid construction and build quality has always been a Perreaux hallmark and the eloquence 250i Integrated Amplifier is no exception; the rugged chassis design, 18mm thick milled aluminum front panel, massive custom heat sinks and unique surface finish exudes luxury and ensures a lifetime of trouble-free operation.

The 250i’s compact little brother, the eloquence 150i, is rated at 150 Watts into 8 Ohms and 300 Watts into 4 Ohms, and retains the same sonic characteristics, intuitive user interface and luxurious fit and finish.

Both eloquence integrated amplifiers are available with an optional 24-bit/192kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) — ensuring complete integration of digital source components, such as network music servers and set-top digital receivers, into a high-performance music system; as well as an optional Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) Phono Stage allowing connection of a turntable.

The eloquence 250i Integrated Amplifier is priced at $8,999 USD and the 150i at $5,999 USD, both are available now. The optional DAC is $999 USD and Phono Stage $499 USD.
