An amplifier is the heart of your hi-fi system, accepting connections from your music sources (such as Music Streamer, Turntable, CD Player etc) and amplifying these for connection to your speakers. A two (or more) box pre and power amp combination is often most desirable and can produce the best sound quality. The most popular hi-fi amp is the integrated amplifier, which combines these into one box. Valve amplifiers typically offer a warmer sound and headphone amplifiers are dedicated to giving you the best sound through headphones only. At Vickers HiFi, we stock a range of leading brands including Pathos, Cyrus, Roksan and many more. If you need any advice on amplifiers and speaker matching, please call or e-mail.
