Jadis Divine at Chicago's Axpona
Sun, 23 Apr 2017
Chicago dealer Kyomi Audio presents the new Jadis JA200 monoblocks with JP200 preamplifier at Axpona.
George Vatchnazde the Proprietor of Kyomi Audio always has a fun and terrific sounding room. The system featured the big Vivid Audio Giya G1 Series II speakers and the brand new Jadis JA200 MK II Tube Mono amplifiers.
The Jadis JA200 amplifiers have been updated to MkII status to accommodate the powerful and popular KT150 tube. The system consists of two mono-block amplifiers, each with its own separate power supply. Available in balanced or single ended configuration, the amps kick out 200 watts of pure class A power and autobias makes long term operation and maintenance easy.
I was so taken by the sound that all I wanted to do was sit and listen. And it wasn’t just the fabled Jadis midrange that had me in its grip; the bass was also quite good, and the highs divine. The most outstanding system I heard on the first day of Axpona.Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, Axpona Show Report, April 2017
There was an astonishing, well, vivid, illusion of a live big band in the room – soaring horns, shimmering cymbals and Hibbler’s smooth crooning. It sounded as visceral and immediate as if Ellington were present today. That’s a hard trick to pull off.John Stancavage, Part-Time Audiophile, Axpona Show Report, May 2017
