"Occasionally, products come along that force you to re-evaluate what you understand by arguably the most crucial of all evaluation considerations: value for money. This remarkable pair (PT-100 & A-300) is exactly that – a new price benchmark, the most convincing evocation of ‘affordable high-end’ that I’ve yet encountered"

The BasX PT-100 is a high performance stereo pre-amplifier that includes a high-performance stereo FM tuner, line level analogue inputs for a CD player or line-level source, a built-in USB DAC with plenty of digital inputs for your computer, TV, cable box, streamer, etc. It even includes a high-quality phono preamp that supports both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, along with provisions for a high-quality AptX Bluetooth module. The PT-100 can be operated via the simple front panel controls, or by the included infrared remote control. he intuitive menu system makes the PT-100 simple to configure and operate, and the big, easy to read, VFD display on the PT-100’s front panel shows you exactly what’s going on at all times.



  • Tick Highly optimised circuit layout – ensures the best possible sound quality, with low distortion, wide bandwidth, and a virtually silent noise floor.
  • Tick Sensitive FM tuner – features 50 station presets and a Mono mode to help make even weak stations listenable.
  • Tick A full complement of analogue inputs – including two line level inputs, and a high quality phono input that supports both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges.
  • Tick VFD display - simple and easy to read display with 3 dimmable levels.

  • Tick Flexible menu system – makes the BasX PT-100 easy to configure and simple to operate.
  • Tick Double sided FR4 circuit boards with plated-through holes – SMD construction enables us to use short, optimised signal paths and minimise the need for point-to-point wiring.
  • Tick Heavy steel 2RU chassis with milled aluminium face plate - provide strength and rugged good looks.
  • Tick Universal AC line voltage operation - the BasX PT-100 is designed to operate on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz, and automatically detect and configure itself to operate with your local line voltage.

Little bit awkward menu but I'm very satisfied.

Sounds OK, but very difficult and unintuitive to set up. I have yet to find the "Autotune" FM radio facility, in fact I don't think there is one on the unit I have. The "menu system" is far from simple to navigate. It needs to be simplified into a tree structure. Also, too few analogue inputs. I have run the unit into my 80W per channel valve monoblocks, so it should sound good. NB. I am a retired IT professional!
