[FS] Audionet SAM G2 integrated amplifier

    This is an extremely high quality, beautifully made (in Germany) integrated amplifier that, if I weren't an inveterate box swapper, would be an amp for life. Really, really capable performer, built to a high standard using quality parts.

    I bought this as an ex dem from an authorised Distributor. It is in very good condition, complete with original packaging and substantial double box packaging, Schuko mains lead, manual and optional remote control. Remote control does show some signs of use, as you might expect. This has the blue display.

    Current retail for this is EUR5290.

    You may have read of the apparent demise of Audionet. That isn't actually correct. The parent company Idektron had to close, but Audionet remains in business ready to support their products.

    You can download the full information on this amplifier here:

    My price for this recent, little used, amplifier is £1,960.

    Collection is fine from me in Bexhill, with a deposit to secure in advance with payment by cash on collection, or prior by bank transfer.

    I'm happy to arrange a courier, but carriage is at buyer's risk. Cost would be £15.59 with £100 of transit cover. With full insurance it would be £106.79 (with UPS via Interparcel). You're welcome to arrange your own courier, with collection at my convenience, subject to full payment in advance by bank transfer. Box is 80x30x61cms and 20Kgs.

    Alternatively, I could do a meet up within reasonable distance of me in the south east of the UK. Again, I'd ask for payment in advance by bank transfer.

    Still here at present. I've been comparing this to the amp that I bought to potentially replace it, but I may just keep the Audionet. If anyone is genuinely interested, then please let me know before I change my mind! If I do keep this, then my very recent Harbeth P3ESRs will also be up for sale.

    This is a sonic bargain if my AudioNet experience is anything to go by.

    You're absolutely right! I've done some further listening this morning. I'm withdrawing this from sale. The amp I bought to replace it will be up for sale soon (an almost brand new Naim SuperNail 2), along with a pair of P3ESRs. I had managed to get the P3s sounding good in my new place (having struggled so to do in my current place), so I wanted to recreate a Harbeth/Naim system that I had long ago. The SN2 sounds fine with the P3s, but completely outclassed (IMO) by my Audionet with Raidho X1s. You live and learn!

    TLDR: withdrawn from sale

    Not surprised you'd be keeping the Audionet over a Naim S/Nait.
