Unbridled Power

Our most powerful integrated amplifier to date - the 300iX delivers 300 Watts RMS of continuous, pure, distortion-free power @ 8 Ohms. Powerful enough to drive the most demanding of loudspeakers.

Integrated Class A Headphone Amplifier

The 300iX features our legendary SXH2 Class A headphone amplifier for personal headphone listening. Capable of effortlessly powering headphones from 8 - 600 Ohms. The SXH2 incorporates an efficient power saving function and high / low power mode option.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming

The 300iX provides CD quality, Bluetooth audio streaming direct from any Bluetooth equipped PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Asynchronous Digital to Analog Converter (DAC)

Stream high resolution digital audio directly from your computer via the integrated, up-sampling, ES SABRE Reference 9038 PRO 32-bit/384kHz asynchronous USB DAC. The 9038 features a USB input, 2 x Optical (Toslink) Digital Inputs, 2 x Coaxial (SPDIF) Digital Inputs for the connection of Digital Set Top Boxes, TV, CD Players, Music Streamers or Games Consoles and an AES EBU (XLR) Digital Input for the connection of professional digital audio sources.

Hybrid Class-A/AB

The bi-polar transistors used within the 300iX operate in Class A. This avoids crossover notch distortion and the resulting odd-order harmonics often present in other classes of power amplifier. The 300iX output stage employs power MOSFET transistors, which with high quiescent current circuitry are run in the equivalent of Class-A to 10 watts. Beyond this output level the 300iX operates as a hybrid Class-AB power amplifier. The combination of MOSFET characteristics and their application in this circuitry, results in a high power output with extremely low crossover distortion.

Phono Preamplifier Module

The 300iX features an integrated PERREAUX Moving Magnet (MM) / Moving Coil (MC) Phono preamplifier module with Earth Binding Post. This microprocessor controlled module provides simple connection and input gain control for both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil Turntables.

Advanced Microprocessor Control

The 300iX’s extensive range of user-customisable functions and stepped analog volume controller are managed by a powerful onboard (electrically isolated) third-generation microprocessor. This provides flexible and functional user options for system configuration and control including stepped volume and balance control, custom operation and mute level setting and custom input naming.

Toroidal Power Transformer

The 300iX incorporates a high-performance, custom-designed, Toroidal Power Transformer. The power supply filter capacitors have exceptionally low inductance and internal resistance. An electrostatic shield prevents AC line-borne interference from entering the signal path and the wiring from the power supplies to the output boards is designed for unimpeded transmission of the required current and voltage and utilizes heavy-gauge, tinned copper cable.

I/O Options

5 pairs Unbalanced analog Inputs (RCA), 1 pair Balanced analog Inputs (XLR), 1 pair Power Amp analog Inputs (RCA), USB, AES EBU Digital Input (XLR), 2 x Optical Digital (Toslink) Inputs, 2 x Coaxial (SPDIF) Digital Inputs, 2 Remote Trigger Inputs (5VDC). One pair Preamplifier (RCA) Outputs, One pair TAPE (RCA) Outputs, Headphone Out (6.35 mm), 2 Remote Trigger Outputs (5VDC) and Two pairs of Speaker Binding Posts per channel.

Balanced (XLR) Inputs

For use with balanced analog audio sources and professional audio devices such as CD players, tape machines and mixing consoles enabling the 300iX to take full advantage of the benefits of balanced analog audio.

Home Theatre (HT) Loop

Integrate the 300iX into your Home Theatre system using the selectable home theatre input loop. This function allows the 300iX to receive signal and provide power to the main L/R speakers as a component of a surround sound system.

Integrated Trigger Output

This handy function allows the 300iX to have standby control over, or be controlled by, compatible trigger input connected audio equipment such as the PERREAUX SM6 MkII preamplifier, 100p Stereo power amplifier, 350 Stereo power amplifier or 750 Monoblock power amplifier.

Bi-Wiring capable

The 300iX features two pairs of high-quality speaker binding posts per channel; provided for bi-wiring applications.

Remote Control Options

The 300iX can be remotely controlled by using the convenient and functional PERREAUX iOS / Android remote app - available free for download from Apple App store / Google Play store. The 300iX also features an included full-function, hand-held Infra Red Remote Control.

High-Contrast Oled Digital Display

The 300iX front panel features a high-contrast, monochrome, Oled digital display with adjustable brightness, text size and remote-controllable screen-mute functionality.

Multiple protection systems

The PERREAUX 300iX incorporates dedicated protection circuitry, isolated from all signal-carrying circuits via opto-couplers providing a range of electronic and speaker safety functionality.

Built to Last

Mechanical strength, reliability and longevity have always been the hallmarks of PERREAUX's amplifier designs. The 300iX is a rugged, powerful, high-performance stereo power amplifier designed to drive the most challenging of speaker loads with minimal effort. Buy one for life.
