True dual mono design with two separate power supplies, the Orton is the natural inheritor of the Sonneteer amplifier greats, the Campion and Alabaster, and inherits all their charms as well as developing some wonderful characteristics of its own. Several years in development, the Sonneteer Orton is the culmination of the experience.

The Sonneteer Orton adopts a Dual mono power supply configuration which means each audio channel has its own, independent power source to maximise the purity of and control over the sound signal. On top of all of this the Orton has a separate power supply for all its control circuitry minimising its affect on the sound making part of the circuitry further ensuring the purity of all music that passes through it.

A fully integrated, dual mono, hifi separates' amplifier in the true purist tradition of esoteric, British high fidelity the Sonneteer Orton sits at the heart of the music system. Where using a Sonneteer CD player, music streamer, record player or even iPod doc the Orton delivers a truly musical experience that will captivate you senses for countless hours.

Positive FeedBack Review by Dean Seislove - Issue 91 Link.

“I’ll tell you how much I like it: I’m now feeling a bit of a fool for gushing so much over previous amplifiers I’ve reviewed…I have listened and listened, to everything from Nirvana to Handel and it has never put a foot wrong. In fact it hasn’t once failed to put a grin on my face. I am both surprised and impressed.” HifiWigwam
