Just a quick blog to say that we now have the new Audio Research 160M Valve Mono Blocks now on Permanent demo and I have to say I have never seen a cooler looking amp with their VU meters that can be switched off if required as it is projected onto the glass, I know it isn’t sound quality related but who said HiFi shouldn’t look great
They use 4 x KT150 Valves each giving around 150 Watts Per Channel with also the option for Ultra-Linear or Triode mode and now with Auto Bias this is a very easy valve amp to live with.
I have them set up in our Highend Room now to give them a chance to run in and they really do sound quite spectacular with our Reference 6 Preamp being fed by the dCS Rossini.
Needless to say if you’d like to come in for a demo anytime please feel free, please find more information on our website below -
Also please find a stunning review below from HiFi News -
Finally here is a small video showing how cool they look
