For sale is my Genesis I60 integrated amp. The unit produces 60 watts/channel via a pair of KT88's per side, and has been widely praised in the press. Those reviews also show cleaner pictures of the unit than I have presented here. Comes with the original tubes, which have few hours on them because I've been using some Shuguang upgraded ones (which I will keep for my new unit).
The unit is unscratched and the beautiful gloss back finish is unmarred (there are just a few marks around the capture plugs for the associated cover). I've rated it 8/10 only because of its age, per audiogon guidance. This is a marvelous unit, that produces clean, robust music (assuming it's paired with appropriate speakers).
Selling only because I've purchased a unit at close to three times it's original price. Do a web search for reviews on the unit. A few comment copied from the Genesis site are:
On dagogo, Jack Roberts says, "The I60 does not sound as good as my Shindo/WAVAC combo.... Yet the I60 makes beautiful music that is easy to listen to and enjoy for long periods of time, a musicality that, to me, defies the Genesis' meager price."
Paul Candy lauded the I60 for its "low level detail retrieval, quiet operation, balanced operation, near effortless power and dynamic ability" on 6moons.
On The Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, Jason Victor Serinus was amazed by the sound of the I60, bringing one closer to the point of artistic creation.
