"While hooking up NS-10s to a premium amplifier like this is akin to wearing runners with a suit, the 300iX drove them with ease, pumping out the glossy pop with incredible depth and accuracy. With 300 watts to work with, the NS-10s sounded immediate and crisp rather than harsh, a feat that few amplifiers can accomplish. Also of note is the quality of the DAC unit on the 300iX, bearing that instantly recognisable depth and precision that we tend to only find in converters of the rack mounted variety"
"The 300iX is clearly mature and thoroughly dialed effort."
"This potent Perreaux is fit and of low body fat but well educated and mannered so no brute."
"I thought that it looked as good as it felt well built, worked flawlessly and sounded refreshingly vital."
“Bonus points came for rounded heatsinks not even your worst enemy could cut himself on if threatened.”
"With this my first-ever Perreaux, I can now appreciate how well earned the company's solid reputation is."
"A modicum of warmth comes not at the expense of speed. Forget fuzz or furriness, blur or bloat."
"Wherewithal to pound and slam joins vocal intimacy and the ability to polish embedded sheen on upper harmonics." "Regular readers of this site can think of it as a more powerful, still quicker and more feature-loaded version of Kinki's EX-M1."
“…I’d anticipated it go just a bit pear-shaped. But it refused. That I found very noteworthy.”
“A great surprise to wrap up this gig on another high C was its built-in class A headfi amp. That effortlessly and beautifully drove my very innefficient HifiMan Susvara.
It’s a truly serious item that won’t justify keeping a separate headphone amp around."
“…the big amp’s speed really excelled at spicy/spiked staccato transients
without lingering fuzz or furriness”
“It really seems that team Dunedin thought of everything and the SPF100 sun screen.
The 300iX isn’t just a bad boy and a baby face. He’s got education too”
"True muscle-amp virtues meet great reflexes"
