SCIENTIST SERIES – ULTRA MACHINE WATT
Even more subtle. Even more transparent. With an even bigger soundstage and a force beyond equal. WATT makes another quantum leap from the celebrated performance of our audiophile amplifier SAM onto another level. Whoever wants the penultimate in a single machine – WATT’s your choice. From this day on.
Special features WATT
Massive aluminium body and resonance-optimized fixation with invisible screws.
Magnetically and capactively optimized circuit and device design, shortest signal paths.
Double-mono design for maximum channel separation.
Electronic volume control with high audio grade components.
Non-disengageable DC servo, no sound degrading capacitors or coils in the signal path.

Audionet • Gold Show Award HIGH END 2016
Audionet receives the AV Showrooms Gold Show Award for the best sound at the HIGH END Munich in May 2016.
BEST OF SHOW at AXPONA
Julie Mullins of The Absolute Sound considered the AUDIONET ROOM a Best of Show: “Another of the systems I most enjoyed was YG Acoustics Hailey 1.2 loudspeakers and solid-state electronics from Audionet of Germany – the PRE G2 preamp, MAX mono amps, and PAM G2 phonostage.”
The SCIENTISTS are coming!
This year, at HIGH END 2016 in Munich, the Audionet magic will transcend all boundaries between Hifi and celebrated design. We cordially invite you to visit us at the High End 2016 in Showroom C121 in the Atrium 3 and in our dealer/press center F001 to meet 5 brand new components within the two new SCIENTIST series:
HEISENBERG and STERN – our new Über-Amps in the ultimate highend series, designed by the legendary Hartmut Esslinger of Apple fame.
PLANCK, WATT and AMPERE – the first three machines from our new ultra-highend series
All hand built in Germany to scientific standards – by people who sure know what they’re doing. We are confident that we will enthrall and impress you! Looking forward to seeing you in Munich for the launch of the new ultimate highend icons!
“Highly recommended!” Key Kim of STEREOTIMES tests AMP and PRE
“As far as I’m concerned, the Audionet AMP and PRE1 G3 are serious contenders for top-notch solid-state electronics in the here and now and earned my choice as a “Most Wanted Components 2015” award. Highly recommended!”
