Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

April Music - Stello HP100 MKII - Pre/Headphone Amplifier
Celebrating the 15th Year Anniversary, April Music announces the stello HP100 / S100 MKII, the culmination of advancement in technology and sound.
Designed for entry into high-end audio reproduction, the new stello performs several levels higher than the intended pricing. Bridging the gap between HiFi and Audiophile, the MKII shows the hidden depth of music.
The stello HP100 / S100 Series is the answer to your passion, the advanced reproduction of sound.
These are the intended purpose of stello HP100 MKII. Focusing on the fundamentals, the MKII produces high-end performance sound at sensible price.
The stello HP/100 Headphone / Preamp utilizes exclusively designed toroidal transformer, assuring stable input-voltage for strong dynamics and subtle nuances of music. And, in order to maximize the design potential, the balanced input connectors are employed, further lowering the noise level.
Alex Rasmussen, the principle architect of the EXIMIS chassis, continues the unique design concept of April Music in the stello 100 MKII series.
The stello HP100 MkII is equipped with pure class A, Push-Pull output circuitry. The J-FET - Low Noise transistor is applied to the input section of the preamp.
The Bipolar transistor scheme is used in the headphone output and it provides exceptional sound and dynamic drive. The input impedance ranges up to 1 mega Ohms and can be connected to all types of interconnect cables, providing very stable operation. Apart from the DC Servo Control circuit in the headphone amp section, the entire preamp board is designed with discrete circuitry for fine tuning and elevated sound quality.
The stello HP100 MKII reproduces remarkably precise and articulate sound of sheer musicality. The ability to faithfully delineate the ultra high resolution software of advanced digital recording enhances any audio life-style, be it Desk-Fi or PC-Fi or Head-Fi.
The first note paints the wide sound stage. The depth the MKII creates is astounding. The soundscape it draws is accurate, painted by expressive mids to lively lows.
Alex Rasmussen, the celebrated designer from America, created the stello MKII chassis by applying his trademark design principle of elegant beauty and compact solidity, providing the elevated music listening and pleasure of possession.
When matched to the source devices with balanced characteristics, the stello MKII based system will offer you the unexpected result. The neutrality of power amp will showcase the intense musicality of the HP100 MkII. Mating the HP100 MkII with the S100 MKII power amp, the stello system will realize the higher imagination.
April Music delighted the world with the introduction of stello DP200, DA220 and DA100 Signature and Eximus DP1 and, based on leading edge technology and innate experience, April Music introduces the stello HP100 / S100 MKII series.
