High End 2011

Gato Audio’s AMP-150 remote-controlled integrated amplifier from Denmark (around €6000) gathered crowds for its beauty alone. Seen alongside a prototype of the forthcoming CDD-1 CD player (below), it’s rated at 150Wpc into 8 ohms.

Different finishes included gloss black and what looked like rosewood. Build quality is impressive.

The "instrument gauges" offer variable backlighting, for analog readout of the amplifier's gain.
