Our flagship product is the Bantam Gold. A miniature stereo digital amplifier with ten times better sound quality than Class T, it offers performance normally available only from amplifiers costing thousands of pounds.

New Monoblock Review and Changes To Our Contact System

We are pleased to announce that the Temple Audio Monoblocks have been professionally reviewed for the first time on www.enjoythemusic.com.


It's a very informative and comprehensive review that's based on over a year of research and experimentation by a highly experinced reviewer for the mainstream Hi-Fi press. So we recommend that you read it, even if you already own them -- you can always learn something new.
You can find the article at here.

Also, in response to a prolonged spam attack on our customer support system, we have updated our contact page to include a Captcha code. This ensures that only real human beings can send us messages.

Our priority with templeaudio.net is to make this site as simple and straightfoward to use as possible. Ultimately, it came down to the fact that we were missing some customers' questions due to high volumes of spam.

Bantam Gold Used by Dyson in Multi-million Pound R&D Developments

We are always fascinated to hear the unique and creative ways customers are using the Bantam Gold. So we were especially pleased to recieve this video from Dyson LTD, an extra-special customer, who has been using Bantam Golds in their labs for many years now.
Yes, that is the same Dyson that is famous for making the world's best vacuum cleaners, although they actually do a lot more than that.


For my fellow technology geeks, the video is very interesting in itself. You can see a Bantam Gold about 30 seconds in.

Dyson are a great British technology company which strives for cutting edge performance through research and smart design, so we are incredibly proud to play a tiny part in what they are doing.

As a very low distortion amplifier The Bantam Gold will excel in a laboratory environment. Unlike a lot of Hi-fi, it doesn't colour the sound in any way. Whatever signal you put in to it, that's exactly what you get out of the speakers, 'warts and all'.

A Little Example Of Our Custom Work

People often ask us about our 'custom capabilities', so I thought I'd post some pictures for you all of one of our recent custom projects.
A customer wanted Eichmann cable pods and RCA connectors on his Monoblocks. But this wasn't a simple drop-in replacement, it required a new back-panel design and precision machining.

Since we do all machining in-house at Temple Audio, it's not difficult for us to produce custom designs using our high-precision CNC machine tools. With results like this.

We Support Real Stereo.
After reading the wonderful page on TNT audio, we have decided to show our support for real stereo.

Those of us who have experienced well recorded music through a good quality stereo system know all about the spatial (3D) information that comes through stereo music. (check our feedback page for examples).
Many of us have noticed how music recording standards have dropped in recent years as people forget the true value of proper stereo recording.
We must show our support for real stereo and educate others, so the record industry will continue to produce the true stereo recordings we enjoy so much.
