NEW TOWNSHEND AUDIO ALLEGRI REFERENCE PREAMPLIFIER


Introducing the new Allegri Reference, which sets a new standard in volume control performance, with 129 0.5dB steps, reed relay switched Auto-transformer Volume Control (AVC). The Allegri Reference is remote-controlled, wired with point-to-point Fractal-Wire™ throughout and suspended on the latest Seismic Isolation. 

Designed with the goal of absolute signal purity, it is the optimum solution for the heart of your system. It is the ultimate, timeless, state-of-the-art, purely analogue, passive, stereo audio volume control. It is exactly what every audio enthusiast has been waiting for.


Embodying Townshend’s renowned crystal-clear treble, open, lucid mid-band, and subterranean bass, as delivered by the earlier Allegri+ preamplifier, the Allegri Reference amazingly delivers another level of sound quality. Whilst unveiling previously hidden fine detail, the Allegri Reference is uniquely able to transform the entire sound-stage into a holographic-like experience. Instruments, singers and the original acoustics of the venue, morph from between the speakers into a ‘real’, exciting, enjoyable performance. 


The Allegri Reference is a microprocessor-controlled, passive, AVC pre-amplifier, ideally suited for both the discerning home hi-fi enthusiast and the professional user. It has a detailed and clear LED display and easy to use interface. Featuring five stereo phono inputs and two pairs of balanced XLRs. The XLRs are in parallel with inputs 1 and 2. There is a 3.5mm jack socket, on the front panel, in parallel with input five. For output, it has two sets of stereo phonos and one pair of balanced XLRs.


FINISHES: The case and isolating feet are made of anodised aluminium and are available in either a natural silver or black finish.
