Perreaux is a designer and manufacturer of hi fi audio components and first opened for business in 1974 in Napier, New Zealand. The early 80’s saw Perreaux explode onto the US market with the SM2 Stereo Preamplifier and PMF2150B Stereo Power Amplifier. This combination captured the imagination of world markets and word started to spread as the audio press started recognizing this hitherto unknown company called Perreaux.
In 1991 Perreaux re-located their factory to Auckland, New Zealand, enabling them to utilize the increased resources that Auckland had to offer over Napier. While in Auckland Perreaux continued to develop products including the acclaimed Reference Series, popular E-Series and prestigious Radiance R200i.
Perreaux moved to Dunedin, New Zealand, in 2005 (which is where the engineering team and factory is still based) and they remain as passionate and committed as those first days in 1974. Perreaux continues to develop some of the finest sounding audio components available in the world today and is sold in over 30 countries worldwide.
