 "The Verdict"

"Perreaux's 200iX is an excellent, premium-priced integrated amplifier – one that is a real headache for its price rivals. It presents a very swish face to the world, yet its styling isn't bland, and the build quality is superb."

 "The Verdict"

"What really matters is its sound quality, and here it shines. Although tonally clean, it never comes across as clinical and is superb in the time domain. Every speaker I tried with it sang beautifully and presented no problems for the amp in terms of driving them. It's a one-stop amplification shop, then. So if you're in the market for a serious integrated, you'd be foolish to overlook this. The 200iX is a strong statement of Perreaux's intent."

"The 200iX from New Zealand brand Perreaux is a properly integrated amplifier with onboard phonostage, DAC and headphone amplifier. Sound quality is commensurate with the unit’s asking price but the feature set is beyond what I would expect at this price. Sonically it is an easy to get on with amplifier without anything to pull out as being negative at the price. As such it offers a very attractive package all around."

"The Perreaux 200iX is such a desirable amplifier on so many levels. It has more than sufficient power on tap to drive any loudspeakers, with plenty to spare. It’s clean, distortionless sound too, with absolutely silent backgrounds. In short, it’s a beautiful-sounding amplifier. But it’s also an amplifier you can tailor to perfectly suit your requirements, by using the myriad control options built into it to allow you to perfectly match the 200iX to your various sources."

"The Perreaux Audio 200iX provides just about all you’ll need in an integrated amplifier. The on-board DAC is a quality unit featuring a top-level conversion chip as often found in mega-dollar standalone converters. The Bluetooth streaming function worked flawlessly, as did the app. Overall, the 200iX packs a solid connectivity punch."
