MUSICAL TRUTH

I love to get lost in music and explore the universe around me through music. In my youth, whilst creating electronic instruments to faithfully reproduce music, I discovered that musical truth or artistic truth - transcends. The first 20 years of my commercial life, in a very monastic way, I dedicated myself to this truth - to be able to capture the essence and spirit of a great musician's playing and share the emotion of his message. To truly communicate it to others. This is how I approach art. Communicate the truth, the beauty and the essence of the message or "code" instilled in all great objects. The code speaks to us. It liberates us from the everyday. It connect us to the bigger universe.

  • Years of painstaking selection and matching by hand of all the components
  • Bespoke hand-made production from start to finish.
  • Millitary-spec grade components. CNC machined & laser etched panels.
  • Over 300 "in-house" Master Tape concert recordings as our ABSOLUTE REFERENCE.

Marquis Preamplifier

" The Marquis is as fast as the devil, creates a beautiful aura without any indication of overshoot, has glow and spirit, temperament and cunning. It has fire. In comparison to the Marquis, most so called super-preamps sound waste, flabby, boring." Ulrich Michalik, HI FI EXCLUSIV , Germany. Read More

Soliloquy Reference Monoblocks

"The MAS doesn't come off as 'transistory' or clinical ... it had a feather-light touch and a way with tiny details that suggest either a pedigreed 60W or 70W per channel tube amp of recent vintage ..." Ken Kessler, HI FI NEWS& RECORD REVIEW, England. Read More

35 YEARS - SEARCH FOR PERFECTION

German Stereoplay "REFERENZ" in 1988
February, 1988Stuttgart
Klaus Renner [DAS OHR] introduced MAS to Germany in 1982 and called it "THE SECRET WEAPON FROM AUSTRALIA". This drew attention to our little company from "down-under". In February 1988 our "OPULENCE" preamplifier was crowned "REFERENZ" - the absolute standard in Hi End Audio. Notice that our entry level IRAKLIS was also rated in the top class of Amplifiers!

Perspective Architecture/Design Magazine: Meet the judges of the A&D Trophy Awards 2016 [READ MORE]
So neutral though, is the Metaxas Opulence/Soliloquy set up that I could have used just about any sources I liked once the interconnecting cables were sorted. All I'd be hearing were the individual characteristics of the source components. However neutral or 'naked' the sound, the MAS doesn't come off as 'transistory' or clinical ... it had a feather-light touch and a way with tiny details that suggest either a pedigreed 60W or 70W per channel tube amp of recent vintage ..." .
