The only way to design state-of-the-art audio equipment is to have some experience with the finest available recording equipment AND playback equipment. Our systems have been designed using a variety of state-of -the-art phono playback equipment and custom-made Tape Recorders including the battery operated Stellavox SM-8 using 1/4" tape at 30 ips and Stellavox TD-9 using 1/2" tape at 30 ips using Bruel & Kjaer 4135 and Neumann TLM50 & M150 microphones.
Our impressive 'listening laboratory' is rivalled by our comprehensive testing facilities where each amplifier is individually calibrated and tested by an experienced technician before being subjected to extensive listening tests over a one week burn-in period.

Jean Hiraga/Patrick Vercher LA NOUVELLE REVUE DU SON, France. Read More
Marquis Preamplifier" The Marquis is as fast as the devil, creates a beautiful aura without any indication of overshoot, has glow and spirit, temperament and cunning. It has fire. In comparison to the Marquis, most so called super-preamps sound waste, flabby, boring." Ulrich Michalik, HI FI EXCLUSIV , Germany. Read More
OPUS Mastering Preamplifier" It would make a perfect tool to assess equipment by. If any component is not in the top league, the amps will betray the culprit with surprising honesty." Alan Sircom, HI FI CHOICE, England. Read More
Solitaire Power Amplifier"Its sound is characterised by exquisite spatial presentations, solid dynamics, great transparency.A Bascom H. King thumbs up for this one!" Bascom King, AUDIO USA. Read More
Soliloquy Reference Monoblocks"The MAS doesn't come off as 'transistory' or clinical ... it had a feather-light touch and a way with tiny details that suggest either a pedigreed 60W or 70W per channel tube amp of recent vintage ..." Ken Kessler, HI FI NEWS& RECORD REVIEW, England. Read More
I've diversified into a few other businesses since 1981 when I started METAXAS AUDIO SYSTEMS. Namely media. Originally in 1986 with VIVE MAGAZINES and then broadcast television from 2003. I also consult for luxury companies. Some clients include Paspaley Pearls, Robert Mouawad, Laurence Graff, BHP Aurias to name a few.
