Perreaux Eloquence 150i a "World Class" Integrated Amplifier
Andre Marc had nothing but praise for the Eloquence 150i. He was impressed with everything from the amp's structure to the sound quality and functionality.
"...in the weeks I spent with the amp it never ceased to amaze me."
The amplifier is compact and combines the best and most high-end technology Perreaux has to offer. With 150 Watts Per Channel into 8 Ohms and 300 Watts Per Channel into 4 Ohms as well as four RCA inputs, and one set of XLR inputs, the amplifier is certainly big on power and performance.
"...superior in musicality and enjoyment."
When it came down to the music test, Marc struggled to find anything the amplifier couldn't play with expert clarity and precision.
"I recently bought a copy of the 30th Anniversary Edition of Bruce Springsteens’ Born to Run. I have never heard the album in such a fleshed out, lifelike manor."
"The Perreaux made listening to the dense, beautifully crafted arrangements heavenly."
Even with much older tracks, the Elegance 150i was able to deliver.
"One more rock example is the 2001 remaster of the Guess Who’s American Woman. Only a great component can make a 39 year old recording sparkle, and rock out to the point that its age is utterly irrelevant."
With each genre of music tested, the amplifier managed to exceed expectations and play the music in an engaging and impressive way.
"The opening of the 4th movement was a goose bump inducing experience. Acoustic jazz was just as remarkably rendered."
The amplifier also comes with optional internal 24-bit/192kHz DAC and Moving Magnet/Moving Coil (MM/MC) Phono Preamplifier modules ensure complete integration of digital source components (such as network music servers and set-top digital receivers), as well as turntables, into a high-performance system.
In his concluding statement Marc had very little qualms with the amplifier saying that; "The 150i exudes class, does so many things right, has world class build quality, and more than enough power for any real world listening situation."
