Announcing the Audio Research Reference 160S stereo power amp! Taking pre-orders now.

Audio Research is pleased to announce the latest addition to the Reference series of amplification - Reference 160S stereo power amplifier available for pre-order now at Music Lovers.

The new product distills the astonishing resolution, dynamic impact, musical purity and finesse of the 160M mono amplifiers into one beautiful and attainable chassis designed for the music lover in all of us.

Following the example of the internationally-acclaimed 160M monoaural power amplifier introduced in 2018, the Reference 160S is a vacuum-tube design with dual transparent power meters that float in front of the eight KT150 output power tubes.

The Reference 160S will start shipping Q3 2019. Available in Natural and Black finish.

We are taking pre-orders now!
