Red Wine Audio Announces Signature 57 Integrated Amplifier

September 6, 2013


Red Wine Audio, manufacturer of battery-powered, purist hi-fi components begins shipping Signature 57 Integrated Amplifier.

The Signature 57:

• Establishes new performance / value standard in high-end amplification
• Offers expansion options to integrate multiple Red Wine Audio products into one enclosure
• Runs entirely “off-the-grid” on high-current, ultra-clean LiFePO4 battery power

Reference-level Integrated Amplifier

The Signature 57 is the world’s first integrated amplifier of its kind, combining high-current LiFePO4 battery technology with a high-power, discrete Class AB MOSFET design.

The Signature 57 is configured to output a clean 57 watts RMS per channel into 8-ohms (115 watts RMS per channel into 4-ohms, and even more into 2-ohms!) — making it an excellent match for a wide variety of speakers, including those with challenging impedance curves.

But more important is the quality of the sound… “The Signature 57 Integrated is as close as you can get to our flagship Liliana monoblock amplifiers in a single-box solution,” says Vinnie Rossi, Owner of Red Wine Audio.

Unique Expansion Capabilities

The Signature 57’s uniqueness continues with its true “integrated” approach. “When designing our recently released Renaissance Edition lineup, we worked very hard to provide additional options for our customers to be able to integrate multiple Red Wine Audio component modules into a single enclosure,” says Rossi. Adding “…the Signature 57 is the best realization of this goal to-date.”

The Signature 57’s enclosure supports the following Red Wine Audio add-in options:

• Belina DAC
• Analogica phonostage
• Cassabria single-ended headphone stage

Rossi notes “…combining these products into one enclosure not only saves the customer a lot of money compared to buying them separately, it also eliminates the added expense of interconnects and chargers associated with separate components — making for a true all-in-one high-end listening experience.”
Pricing and availability

The base integrated amplifier runs $3,995. Complete pricing for optional add-on modules can be found at Customer shipments begin this week. Lead-times are subject to backorder based on customer demand.
