Ready for Audition



Musical Fidelity brings back one of the most iconic hi-fi integrated amplifiers of all time.

When you think of design icons, what comes to mind are cars like the Porsche 911, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer glasses or the Bialetti espresso pot. In hi-fi, the Musical Fidelity A1 has become one of the most classic designs – inside and out. First released back in the 90s, it quickly made waves for being an absolute beast when it came down to driving some of the most difficult speakers of that time, even though it was actually a rather low powered integrated amplifier. But: it was all done in pure Class A with excellent and expertly laid out discrete symmetrical circuitry topology and using only highest quality components. The A1 showed people that there was more to amplifiers than just high power. Based on its huge success, the A1 has gone through multiple reissues amd new versions over the years. Now for 2023, for the first time since its initial release we have actually kept all specifications, the appearance and circuits of the 1990’s rendition for those who missed out the first time. With an updated transformer, power supplies and modern low noise components we’ve revitalized the formula and are proud to reintroduce the fresh original – three decades later.
