Hifi.nl visited the Vitus Audio room at the 2019 X-Fi premium audio show in the Netherlands. One of Jamie Biesemans comments on the new SIA-030 was “The SIA-030 is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Or should that be ‘even bigger wolf in wolf clothes’?”.
Connaiseur-AV, the importer of brands such as Gold Note and Alluxity, brought a novelty of the Danish Vitus Audio to Veldhoven. The SIA-030 is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Or should that be “even bigger wolf in wolf clothes”? The size and design make this high-end device from the Signature series look like a large power amplifier, but in fact it is an integrated amplifier that you can expand with modules in the long term. For example with a phonostage or a DAC / streamer.
The Signature series at Vitus Audio is the line just below the ultimate Masterpiece devices, but in this case you get a piece of Masterpiece in the SIA-30, which costs around 35,000 euros.
For example, the powersupply comes from the expensive MP-M201. Vitus Audio is a real premium brand, anyone who needs to think more about their budget can also take a look at Alluxity – the brand of Mr. son. Vitus himself. We missed a demo of Alluxity this year (we did hear a nice set at XFI last year), but the relatively compact, finely finished devices that are available in good-looking colors have a high attraction factor.
