The 150i is a compact integrated amplifier with big attitude. It has been designed with precision engineering using the latest in technological advances to ensure seamless integration into any system.

Optional internal 24-bit/192kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (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.

The eloquence 150i stereo integrated amplifier is the perfect partner for the CDt Compact Disc Transport.

Order your 150i before Christmas and receive the optional 24/192 USB DAC module for FREE – our gift to you this Christmas. Simply add the eloquence 150i to your cart and we'll take care of the rest.

Tonally correct.

The audio circuit has no capacitors in the signal path to introduce phase shift to the analogue signal – ensuring your music retains its purity and intended tonal balance.

Musical. Reliable.

High power MOSFET transistors from Toshiba provide a musical valve-like sound and retain the reliability, durability and consistency of solid state.

Enjoyment for life.

Sophisticated protection circuitry gives confidence and reassurance that your investment will provide a lifetime of trouble-free enjoyment.

High power design.

The 150i is designed to handle difficult speaker loads with ease. With it's high powered MOSFET design, the 150i is capable of continuously delivering a genuine 190W into an 8Ω load and a huge 300W into 4Ω.

Bass. Punch. Impact.

The custom designed toroidal transformer and high-current, low-impedance power supply delivers bass with punch and authority - clean bass you can really feel.

Authority and control.

High damping factor ensures absolute authority and total control of any loudspeaker, allowing your speakers to reach their full potential.

Balanced audio input.

Equipped with high-quality Neutrik XLR balanced audio inputs, the balanced audio signal makes dynamic musical transients explode from the quiet and noise-free musical background – your music will never sound so alive.

Precision volume control.

A solid-state stepped attenuator offers precise resolution with exceptional channel matching. The sealed package and lack of mechanical contacts, results in an ageless volume control – wiper noise and component drift is a thing of the past.

Non-invasive balance control.

Balance control is accomplished without the addition of any further circuitry, removing any effect on the audio signal and ensuring the integrity of the sound quality remains in tact.

Highly customisable.

Inputs may be named appropriately, disable unused inputs, match volume levels between inputs, set inputs to bypass the volume control, set initial and maximum volumes. Essentially, the amplifier can operate as though it were tailor-made for your system.

Smart home integration.

The RS-232 serial port allows seamless integration into any smart home using solutions from the likes of Control4™, AMX™ and Crestron™. Coupled with the IR input and Trigger input, smart home integration has never been easier.

Flexibility. Options.

If you prefer digital playback you can spec the internal 24-bit/192kHz USB DAC module. Maybe you're a vinyl addict, then choose the MM/MC phono stage. Perhaps you're just plain greedy, then opt for both. Either way, the optional modules provide flexibility and offer options, whether spec'd from the factory or added in the future.

"The right amp at the right time."
 
"The eloquence 150i is a master of space and time... with a rock 'n' roll heart beating inside that compact chassis."
 
"The 250i behaves, unapologetically, in exactly the manner you’d demand of any high-end unit with vast reserves of power: with grace and guts. And eloquence."
 
"The Audiant sound is authoritative and clear. It’s dynamic and airy, with resolution that allows you to hear deeply into the music."
 
"The 150i was so grain free, so natural sounding, so musical, and refined that it did absolutely nothing to give away that you were listening to either solid state or tube."
 
"The DP32 and 100p is one of those famous combinations that lets you get on with enjoying the music."
 
"The 250i is pretty close to my dream amp!"
