Jadis' new state-of-the-art integrated
The Jadis I-50 is a 50 watt, pure class-A, integrated amplifier with autobias and a remote control. It was designed from the ground up to take advantage of the new KT150 tubes which are said to offer improved microphony and heat dissipation characteristics, and provide more power and better detail and bass control than other tubes.
The I-50 delivers a smooth flowing midrange, big rich tight bass with outstanding control and sweet natural highs with excellent resolution. Tube complement is: 4 KT150, 3 ECC82 and 2 ECC83. The I-50 has four line inputs and one USB input (48/16bit), and it will drive speakers from 1 - 16 ohms. It weighs 70 lbs.
It has the power to drive real speakers to real levels and to do so with a sense of control and confidence that's hard to dispute. And it combines all that stereotypical tube amp limpidity with an ability to rock hard when required, complete with surging drums, clean, crisp cymbals and snarly guitars. I think I may have just seen the light. An excellent amplifier.
