Australian purchasers your price Ex NZ GST is $11,300.

Metrum’s Forte Power Amp does … like other Metrum’s products … things a little differently.

Class A bias, minimal Feedback + Triode Tube emulation Solid State Drive.

Check the 6 Moons and (Translated) Alpha-Audio Reviews for their most enthusiastic reports online. More to come of course.

Perfect partner naturally to Adagio.

Forte has proved comparable to some Class leading competition but when you add Adagio to the mix, this 3 way Dac/Pre/Amp outclasses alternatives at about 3 times the price – at least according to Reviewers.

In fact adding the cost of just two such recognised alternatives (Dac + Analogue Pre) ... far exceeds the total value of an Adagio/Forte/Amira or Aptica package.

Down the hierarchy a little and a further $10K can be saved with Jade > Forte > Amira.

Forte sold out prior to release and there has been limited availability all year. New stock sees a few improvements made over the models provided for the above Reviews.

Available whilst current stock lasts. Replacement stock will not arrive until next year.

For the latest on Metrum developments refer Adagio listing. A complete 'Critical' Audio chain for Digital enthusiasts will soon be available.

Currently missing a 'musical Source' to complete the Audio chain. It's taken some time to get right (as usual) but not far off.

'Ambre' > Jade/Adagio > Forte > Amira/Aptica/Axcentia/Alecta/Ates­ia :

Reference grade Audio chains.
