PRODUCT OF THE YEAR 2018. 
AWARDED BY MONO&STEREO AND TONEAUDIO

Imagine a complete High-End stereo system enclosed in a beautiful aluminum chassis carved in bold Italian style: this is IS-1000.

With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, we are now able to offer an all-in-one solution powered by the most advanced technologies and components to achieve true audiophile quality sound.

IS-1000 is an advanced fully integrated amplifier that redefines the way music playback is experienced to achieve a new pinnacle in High-End audio, seamlessly merging a powerful Class A/B Integrated Amplifier, a Phono Preamp, a DAC and a Streamer in a unique, complete source.

The refined technical innovations of IS-1000 come directly from our flagship models, like the preamplifier P-1000 and the power amplifier PA-1175, which inspired us to create a new source that would integrate the analogue components of a high quality amplifier with the digital technologies of a Streamer and a DAC to deliver outstanding performances.

“This isn’t a traditional integrated amplifier, but one that reflects the requirements of audio enthusiasts in 2018.” Hi-Fi Choice
