“I suddenly remembered I was supposed to be reviewing the amp rather than sitting there transfixed…”

“Any damn fool can just play a tune and get it over with, but the best like the Alabaster, does more than that…it’s a ballet dancer that can’t be fazed by anything.”

“…even more transparent in the mid-range than the Campion, which was fairly special.”

Fully integrated hifi separates’ amplifier in the true purist tradition of esoteric, British high fidelity the Sonneteer Alabaster sits at the heart of the music system. Plug your music source in, be it a Sonneteer CD player, music streamer, record player* or even iPod doc and enjoy the music through your loudspeakers**.

The Alabaster has been described as, “ The best amplifier ever made” and we at Sonneteer have spent many an hour, week, month, trying to live up to the high standards we have set with these products.
