And I'm not kidding when I say that this stuff will dramatically improve the visual appeal of your listening room. It's just that well built. But more importantly, it will heighten your appreciation for the very nature of music and particularly live music. Publisher Clement Perry, often speaks of...
It is almost unbelievably smooth but don't let this fool you into believing that it is dynamically shy or remotely soft in nature. It is fast, dramatic, powerful and edgy when the music demands and can swing convincing transients, yet remain totally in control all the while.
It's that custom-made transformer again, which seems able to deliver precise amounts of power with absolute precision to any part of the bandwidth when and where it is needed. Resolution, though not the best I have ever heard, is generally excellent too. It never sounds overtly or clinically detailed but the closer you look, the more nuanced and subtle the music.....

Then came the Vitus SM-101
|What sets the Vitus apart? First off, within it's limits, and every component has them, the bass control /transient speed and dynamic impact is the best I have encountered from a solid state amplifier. It is truly astounding, astonishing or just go ahead and make up a word that goes beyond these adjectives to describe the performance those 100 pure Class A watts provide. Every disc I played to evaluate the bass of these amps was transformed. The absence of any coloration, darkening, bloating, spreading of warmth into the mid-bass or lower midrange allowed for intense rhythmic pace and swing. Track one "War Heads" from Extreme's Three Side to Every Story (A&M31454) explodes after the intro with a kick drum dominated back beat.||I have listened to this track at least a thousand times, and I am here to tell you, it has never sounded anything like this. Some amps make it sound big and bold, some make it sound a bit leaner but tighter and drier. The Vitus gets it perfectly balanced. The lower registers are fast, with chest thumping power yet perfectly defined and resonant without the drying out of the drums natural bloom. The interplay with the bass guitar is so perfectly integrated and clear. This is no small task as the recording of the bass line is extremely tight, not to mention the precision and speed with which the bass is played.|

And I'm not kidding when I say that this stuff will dramatically improve the visual appeal of your listening room. It's just that well built. But more importantly, it will heighten your appreciation for the very nature of music and particularly live music. Publisher Clement Perry, often speaks of a state of mind he calls "Audio Hell," where reviewers reside when they become exposed to gear that lifts them to a state of euphoria and them destroys them when they are forced to come to grips with the fact that they can never possess the gear that they love. As I prepare to ship the SS-010 back to Denmark, I know where it is that I will be residing for the next few months ... psychologically anyway.
The Vitus Audio SS-010 amplifier is not just highly recommended it embodies the spirit of this webzine's highest honor, a "Most Wanted Component" award.

|The more I played my music collection through the Vitus Audio SS-101, the more I appreciated what it was and wasn't doing-and the more I wanted to listen through it. It had bass slam and power with my hard-rocking Creed discs. It displayed the type of resolution needed to fully exploit the fi nely crafted Chesky discs in my collection. And the unique voice of James Blunt on "Goodbye My Lover," from Back to Bedlam [CD, Atlantic 83752], was colorful and songlike.||If I shifted into audiophile mode, I could dissect each inflection and intonation in his crooning. Instead, I simply listened and felt his emotions, as captured on this recording. The SS-101 transferred the bloom and subtlety on the disc directly into my room. I could not have asked for anything better.|

This is our first review in Asia. It goes through all the details and background of the design of both the SL-100 and SM-100. Both these products was the birth of the Signature Series and lives on in the SL-101 and SM-101.

|Music, space and beauty suffer no analysis. They are timeless. And so performs the SL100. This is what music lovers should pay for though under the current reign of consumerism, I am not entirely discounting the importance of craftsmanship. Make no mistakes about the SL100. The craftsmanship of the beautifully engineered chassis makes this object d'art weight close to 60 pounds after de-crating it from the wooden case.||
I am fully aware that this is my debut review for 6moons but I honestly cannot find fault with the SL100. This is a serious piece of machinery for the mature listener who cares about music and nothing else.
I have no hesitation to place the SL100 into the category of Absolute Reference.

Vitus audio may be small; they may be the new kids on the high-end block, but that they deserve their place is indisputable. The name might not be that well known but I've a feeling that that's only a matter of time. Take the trouble to seek them out and I'll be surprised if you are any less impressed than I was. More evidence indeed that the status quo in high-end audio is on the move. These electronics might seem expensive, but unlike so many of their price peers, they deliver full value in both engineering and musical terms.
I loved them!
