The Reference Phono 3 is a continuation of the work which has been evolving other components in the Audio Research Reference Series over the past year. In mid-2015, all of the amplifiers received significant performance enhancements with the SE updates - new output tubes, components, and other parts ushered in a new level of sonic accuracy and musicality.
For the most demanding audiophiles, the DreamPlay CD turntable shows an exceptional design and combines the pleasure of your eyes to musical hedonism. Put the disc onto the turntable, cover it with the CD clamp, press on play and… shut your eyes : this is live music.
Almost since the inception of the brand, Audio Research has produced some of the finest components for music reproduction; this is especially true with regard to preamplifiers. In 1973, the SP3 was hailed as the best preamplifier available, and this tradition of excellence has continued ever since. The Reference Series from Audio Research was first introduced in 1995 and has been the ultimate representation of performance, musicality and power. The Reference 6 is the latest chapter of our story.
THE PROGRESSION MONO DESIGN combines two normally exclusive traits—remarkable power output and exquisite musical finesse. Power is essential to realistic sound reproduction. The Progression mono amplifier is the largest and most powerful the company has made, delivering 500 watts into 8 ohms, doubling to 1,000 watts into 4 ohms and doubling again to 2,000 watts into 2 ohms. Of course, it will play loud, but it is speaker driver control that is the most important aspect of this awesome power capability.
The dCS Network Bridge is a high-performance network streaming device that is powerful and flexible, yet ultra-stable and simple to use, delivering digital music at the highest possible quality. It enables streaming of all manner of music files from network-attached storage, connected USB drives and online streaming services, as well as Apple devices via Apple Airplay, outputting bit-perfect audio direct to your DAC.
The next generation of Harbeth's M30.1 model; the M30.2, is now available in a limited edition silver eucalyptus veneer.

DirectStream is one of the most remarkable DACS ever built. Hand written, discrete, perfection based conversion that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your digital audio media for all these years. CD's, downloads, high-resolution PCM or DSD based media are expertly upsampled in the DirectStream to ten times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your amplifier or preamplifier.
The TechDAS team has met with demands from many of our customers, which has resulted in the development of Air Force Two, a unit that retains an almost equal performance to Air Force One. The largest factor that has led to such a price cut is a change in the manufacturing measure from Air Force One, which was originally constructed by machining the body through a process of metal cutting, while in Air Force Two, the chassis body has been beautifully made through precision metal casting techniques. As a result of the combination of both the aluminum cast chassis and the newly developed oil damping air suspension system, the same level of vibration isolation has been achieved as in the Air Force One.
In 2010 we announced the Reference Anniversary preamplifier, a special limited edition product commemorating our 40th anniversary. It was acclaimed by many as the finest preamplifier available and a fitting tribute to all of the classic Audio Research products that were introduced during the forty years that preceded it.
