The Vitus SIA-030 Integrated Amplifier had its grand unveiling at the Munich High End Show 2019, it has been a while coming, it actually was delayed by almost a year so Hans Ole Vitus could hone and fine-tune the amplifier in order to extract the finest possible performance from it – it was certainly worth the wait!

The SIA-030 delivers 30 watts per channel in Class A mode, switch over to Class AB mode and the power output steps up to 200 watts a side.

The SIA uses a huge 2.2kVA mains transformer, designed specifically for the SIA-030. The transformer has been suspended in the huge chassis to minimise unwanted vibration/noise. The volume control comes is based around the Masterpiece MP-L201 Linestage and steps up in 0.5dB steps for the ultimate control

There are 2 optional plug-in modules available for the SIA-030. The first board is DAC/Streamer module, this board has just been revised by Vitus and is now Roon Ready as of June 2023, this board is £6500.00.

The second board is a high performance phono stage which should hopefully be ready Q4 2023. It is not a case of choosing one or the other, both boards can be fitted together and the board simply slides in from the back and locks into place. You do not need to go into the case to install them, this board is also priced at £6500.

The DAC board gives you plenty of options with Ethernet (Roon Ready) or stream Qobuz/Tidal directly from MConnect, USB (for Melco users and suchlike), plus toslink, RCA and AES/EBU

The SIA-030 still has 3 x pairs of XLR fully balanced inputs and 2 x pairs of RCA single ended inputs. for connecting external sources. There is 1 x pair of RCA Pre-outs.

Tonally an SIA-030 takes the very best aspects of an SIA-025 and an RI-101 mk2 but with more of everything, much more to be fair. The level of resolution and the distinct lack of noise is a real eye opener for most people when they experience it for the first time.

The performance is liquid, effortlessly natural and a huge open window letting you see right into the music, with huge levels of scale and weight. Sound-staging this precise and palpable is something many people will never have experienced before.

The SIA-030 redefines what the industry thought was possible from an integrated amplifier and even multiple boxes of amplification at any price point.
