One of, if not the best tube preamp value on the high-end audio market today, particularly at pre-owned prices, the Jolida Fusion is based on a classic Marantz design of yesteryear. This remote controlled "giant killer" is a full function, all tube preamp that boats a great array of features. Inputs include a pair of XLRs, and 3 pair of RCAs, with one pair of XLR outputs and two pairs of RCA outputs to accommodate bi-amping, if desired, plus a Home Theater bypass and 12 volt triggers. There is also a set of fixed level RCA tape outs for recording or to connect to to a second zone. An IEC input allows for aftermarket power cords, which make the Fusion a perfect candidate for aftermarket power cable upgrades, which boost the Fusion's performance even further.
Tube compliments includes a pair of Premium Tungsol 12AX7's and a pair of 12AT7's.
This unit includes factory installed upgraded German Rike Capacitors in key output positions, plus Naked Z Foil Upgraded Resistors in the power stage, and in the signal path. High quality stock parts include Clarity Capacitors and Hi speed diodes.
The performance of this upgraded model is unbelievable. A delicate, lush, airy midrange and plenty of 3D tube magic abound. Bass is solid, clean, and controlled, with excellent drive and authority. High frequency detail is presented with great tonal accuracy, and "you are there" believably. The Fusion makes a great dance partner for both solid state and tube based amplifiers alike. The sonic package and it's robust build quality are simply superb at this price.
I am the original owner, the unit has been meticulously cared for, and is in pristine condition.
