It's now here, possibly the smallest amplifier we've e sold, and it couldnt be more cute!
This little box, IO, is only 180mm/ 7" across and less than a foot deep at 290mm.
IO is also a mere 30 watts per channel
IO only has 3 inputs, 1 turntable MM and 2 line inputs
IO has a remote control
IO has a headphone socket
IO will drive a wide range of speakers
IO sounds great !
IO will shake up the amplifier market under £ 500 by being so simple and so good!
Under £ 500 for a stereo amplifier there are many options, but they're all pretty similar
They are all 430mm wide, they have analogue and digital inputs and they all read as being pretty powerful
They are also all made in China and the Rega is made by people in Westlciff on sea, Essex
The most popular amplifier at this price for 4/5 years has been the Marantz PM6000/2/3/4/5/6/7, and it has been our favourite as well.
It sounds better than most, it has digital inputs and lots of inputs. It covers all the bases for most people
But there's a new kid on the block to teach the big boys (430mm) a lesson !
Call in for a listen, the IO sounds better, it is more detailed, more dynamic and it brings the music to life as you hear every voice and instrument as more realistic
And if you want to stream from your phone through it we can throw in a bluetooth adaptor for an extra £ 30!
Almost forgot the price! Just £ 379, wow!
AND we did a video!
