At Minimalist Audio we've tried several really good compact solid state amplifiers for compact type systems such as for the desktop or for a room system where the electronics can be all but hidden away. Sadly, some of these great little pieces became unavailable. Taking on (hand built in the UK) Temple Audio has us back in business with their incredible, fabulous sounding Class D amplifiers. An audiophile quality, "lifestyle" system can now be put together where function doesn't have to follow form.
The sound of these amps is fast, clear, punchy and sweet with a very 3D soundstage, and they will work beautifully with a large variety of speakers.
Bantam One Class D Integrated Amplifier
This is the new integrated amp we've been waiting for. The Bantam One is a full featured integrated amp with 3 inputs and a subwoofer output. It is entirely made in the UK. The little Bantam Gold has been one of the best solid state amps we've heard regardless of price - the Bantam One takes the sound up several notches, not to mention it has more power, so can work with a larger variety of speakers.
The Bantam One is available in three configurations:
1) No remote with no remote capability.
2) No remote but with Blutooth remote capability to work with Android.
3) Complete with beautiful wood Bluetooth remote handpiece.

As there are several cosmetic options along with the remote options
all Bantam One amplifiers are built to order - allow about three weeks to ship direct to you from the UK. The sale would go through Minimalist Audio, and we eat the shipping which is a sizable chunk.
Pricing: Due to the slim margins and fluctuating exchange rates we charge the UK price x whatever that days exchange rate is. We do the same with Decware and it's worked out well.

Bantam Gold Class D Integrated Amplifier
The Bantam Gold will give a taste of the high end for a very low price. We have never heard a better sounding desktop system than when fronted with this amp.
The Bantam Gold, along with all Temple Audio gear (except Bantam One which has internal power supply) can be powered by the included stock brick style switching power supply, a linear power supply like an Astron or Core Audio, or a battery. The front end could be a Resonessnce Labs Herus+ and an iPhone, iPod, iPad, Andriod, or computer. A very compact and potent system could be built around these components.
Pricing: Due to the slim margins and fluctuating exchange rates we charge the UK price x whatever that days exchange rate is. We do the same with Decware and it's worked out well. As with Decware, the shipping is free.
