Alluxity Int. One Mk II

The Integrated One doesn’t stick out within its setting, rather it blends in perfectly. It does, however, stick out in terms of performance: it has the same relay-based volume control as its bigger sibling preamp, the Pre Two, and a very similar output stage as the Power One amplifier. Even more, in Mk. II guise it’s now truly balanced. It’s a compact beast at 35 lbs., but you wouldn’t know it by sizing up its perfectly simple Scandinavian appearance.

  • Inputs: 2 x Balanced XLR, 3 x Unbalanced RCA
  • Outputs: 0.25” Binding Posts, 1 x Unbalanced Pre-out for bi-amplification
  • Input Impedance (Balanced/Unbalanced) 10k ohms/5k ohms
  • Output Impedance 75m ohms
  • Frequency Response, -3 dB >800k Hz
  • Dimensions 17.1” W x 4.1” H x 12.4” D

Chario Loudspeakers Nobile Speaker

Nobile, a speaker deeply rooted in Chario’s tradition of Italian walnut hardwood construction, detailed sound, and tightly controlled bass. Delicate yet at the same time absolutely not lacking in power, the 2-way speaker has surprised everyone since its introduction by bringing together all of Chario’s unique features in a reasonably sized cabinet. Unexpected deep frequency reach, amazing dynamic capacity, and high sensitivity make Nobile a definite reference in its price category. It can be used as a monitor or stand-mounted, disappearing and leaving space for the music’s message. And because it’s a Chario, it adapts easily to non-optimal acoustic environments.

  • Made of solid Italian walnut and HDF
  • Inverted woofer location to simplify room placement
  • Crossover design reduces phase distortions
  • Dedicated speaker stands available
  • Made in Milan, Italy
