Di150 LE integrated amp hailed as Tone Audio’s Amplifier of the Year

As an inveterate separates user, Tone Audio’s Jerold O’Brien might not seem the obvious choice to review an integrated amplifier. While O’Brien ‘sometimes wonders’ about the advantages of using an integrated amp – saving space, fewer cables, one less power cord and a front end and power section that are designed as a unit, for example – “somehow I never got around to living with one,” he admits. Until, that is, the Gamut Di150 LE came his way.

Gamut RS3i among The Absolute Sound’s ‘6 Super Speakers’

If you’re in the market for a pair of high-performance loudspeakers but feel daunted by the choices on offer, take a look at the latest issue of The Absolute Sound. The October 2016 edition of the US audiophile magazine includes in-depth reviews of six ‘super speakers’, including the Gamut RS3i  – the little guy with the surprisingly big soundstage.

Soothe your savage beast with the Gamut sound!

“Some rooms at a hi-fi show you walk into, and you just instantly go Ahhhhhhh…” writes Rafe Arnott over at the Part-Time Audiophile web magazine.

“Shows can seem like an African savanna at times; hot, exhausting, with heat waves in the distance fooling you into thinking that there’s relief for your aural weariness just over the next rise,” he continues.

Gamut RS3i loudspeaker reviewed by Tone Audio

“Would these Danish beauties blow our socks off like their bigger brothers?” asks Rob Johnson of our RS3i standmount loudspeakers, having previously reviewed the RS5i floorstanders.

Rob’s excellent review, for US-based audiophile magazine Tone Audio, is well worth a read in full. But just in case you’re in a hurry, here’s a few snippets…

Audiophilia.com reviews the Gamut RS3i

“For many years, audiophiles who had space constraints, WAF (wife acceptance factor) or other issues, were forced to contend with small standmount or ‘bookshelf’ speakers,” writes Henry Wilkensen for online magazine Audiophilia.

On the plus side, “these speakers often were capable of good sound and usually had a superior ability to float a very good soundstage”. But on the other hand, “one had to imagine how much bass there was in a recording since lack of it was the major sacrifice.”

Not any more, as the Gamut RS3i joins the ranks of “high performance monitors that are capable of a sound that is closer to full range.”

World’s first ‘listening chair’ makes waves at CES: introducing the Gamut Hi-Fi Lobster Chair

Audiophiles, are you sitting comfortably? Moreover, is your chair playing an active role in the quality of your listening experience? If not, then you may need one of these…

You’ve no doubt spent many hours evaluating every element of your hi-fi system and its placement in your listening room. But what about the furniture you’re sitting on?

CES 2016 saw the official launch of the Gamut Lobster Chair – the world’s first hi-fi listening chair. The chair is designed to control the sound reflections that reach your ear, allowing you to hear a more precise and natural soundstage. Specifically, it shields the ear from reflections emanating from behind the listening position, while at the same time preventing the sound from reflecting on the forward-facing areas of the headrest that flank the listener’s head.
