Audion was established in 1987 by David Chessell following his love of music and being a long time enthusiast, always delving into the depths of components, design and amplifiers. The concept in those early days was to allow people to get an insight into audiophile high end without sacrificing their home or bank balance. This overall picture still holds good for most of the current production with just a few bespoke built and designed products entering the upper echelons.

 Premier Quattro 2 and 4 Box Pre-Amp

 

 

 

 

The Premier Quattro preamp is a two or four box preamp, totally hard wired using silver wire with specially selected components to make it one of the best sounding preamps in the world!

The Quattro is available in our new design Uni-chassis', and includes an MC stage for even the most sensitive of cartridges, presenting itself as a high-end, high quality product capable of handling a massive array of sources. The Quattro also includes the same silver wire in the signal path, with specially selected and matched components including some tanatalum resistors, etc etc. There are 4 line level inputs and an MC input - hand built too!

The Audion Quattro is the finest stock preamplifier ever made. Its phono stage can accommodate any low output moving coils, and its line-stage is just a cathode follower with very little gain. It has the benefits of both simplicity of design and superb execution (with only 4 tubes in the entire signal path from the cartridge, a 4 chassis totally dual-mono construction and the power supplies use only polypropylene capacitors). There are 17 active power supply stages in the 2 box and 21 active supplies in the 4 box. 

PRICE : 6500 euro 2 BOX   / 8950 euro 4 BOX
