Up for sale is my beloved Jolida 1000P tube amp. This amp is in the black color as seen in the attached pictures. The amp is in excellent shape and rated an 8 per audiogon's rating tool. This amp outputs 100 watts of tube power per channel and it's mighty powerful and able to drive most any speakers. The amp has both XLR and single-ended connections and even has speaker outputs selection for 4 and 8ohms speakers.
The amp produces very lush vocals (male or female voices), very smooth highs, warm, tight and strong bass. I have a Plinius SA-100mk III class A solid state amp and the Jolida amp keeps up with the Plinius' bass splendidly. As you know, the measurement of watts from the vacuum tube amps are generally lower than those of the solid state amps, but the power are very comparable. Many vacuum tube amps power output are rated much lower, for example, 45 watts per channel vs. 200 watts per channel on the solid state amps. However, the power to drive the speakers are on very similar level. Run a Google search to get a more detailed explanation and comparison from the experts. With that said, this amp has plenty of reserve power to drive even those hard to please, power hungry speakers with ease. On top of that, the sound is just so wonderful and tireless, and you can listen to music for hours on end. I listen to a variety of music such as jazz, classical, pop, light rock, alternative, and new age. They all sound marvelous with this amp. I love the amp, but sadly have to let it go due to employment situation. Toys must go to pay bills.
The amp is in great condition and on one side, one of the screws can work its way out. It was like this when I purchased it and the owner confirmed he had the problem with that screw when he had it. Other than that, there's nothing else that I can think of. A little threadlock should resolve the problem. I just never bother with it as I wanted to roll some tubes. Never got around to doing that as I just love the sound with the existing tubes. I apologize for the crappy pictures as my cheap digital camera is really bad at taking pictures of black objects. The color consistency of the exterior is actually pretty nice. Some of the defect you see are just from the effects of the flash. It looks really nice with the tubes light up and the lights down. Got so many compliments from guests.
I have perfect ratings on here as well as ebay if you would like to verify. Buy with confidence as I believe in integrity and honesty when it comes to buying or selling. I do more buying then selling but I give the same amount of attention to both sides.
By the way, the price is pretty much firm. This is one powerful tube amp for just slightly over a grand and there are others that cost so much more. This amp is a great way to get into the hi-end tube gears without selling a kidney and a limb.
Thank you for looking and considering and cheers.
