The ultimate in amplification and built without compromise, the 851 is our finest integrated amplifier. It possesses incredible power, finesse and astonishingly low distortion. In its design we assessed every component for sonic excellence and revised, reviewed and optimised the signal path for minimal distortion. Thousands of hours were spent testing and tweaking, the result is an amplifier like you’ve never heard before.
The pre-amp stage is all about minimal colouration. Take the source signal and pass it onto the power amp stage with as little interference as possible. That’s exactly what the 851E does, and coupled with its solid-state volume control, it retains audio signal purity and precision even at the lowest listening levels.
The 851W is our flagship power amplifier, with immense power and incredibly low distortion. It’s perfectly matched to partner our 851E pre-amplifier and 851N network player; taking their pure signal and amplifying it with huge presence and authority. You’ll re-discover your favourite music in a quality that you’ve never heard before.
