Jadis JA80 monoblock amps, upgraded to an outstanding level of performance...
The ultimate blend of transparency and
emotion." states a reviewer and we can't agree more! The mods added
substantial sound staging, capturing
ambience and transient, texture, detail, live “like feeling” and extra
strong “goose bumps” effect to the rendition of most recorded music material!
entered the scene, quite a while ago, made a lasting impression and, their
equipment still compliments one of the finest and most expensive audio systems
in the world, today.
mono-blocks, paired with a JP80 two-chassis preamplifier (with a separate
dedicated power supply) is one of, if not the most (both musically and price
wise) desirable offer from the historical Jadis catalogue.
prices, a pair of Jadis JA80 MKII (a very resembling, slightly updated version
of the company's very first product), will draw you back some 22k U$.
About 1 1/2
years ago, we've commissioned a professional audio engineer with over 25 years
of hands on experience, here in Toronto (name available on request), to apply
the best parts, to upgrade the pair of JA80s that we already had, at a money no object level.
These mods were based on Mr Arthuro Salvatore's
(a well known former Toronto dealer, and high end audio fanatic and
"guru", living now in Florida- based on a lifetime of his
experimenting mods on the Jadis), recommendations, same as the heavily mods
performed to the associated Jadis JP80 pre-amplifier, also currently offered for
sale by us).
extensive list of mods done on both monoblock amps and on the preamp (unit and
power supply) is privately available on demand, to the serious potential
clients and/ or enthusiast/s.
Now, this guaranteed (way) better
than new sounding, exceptional pair of mono-blocks (physical condition is 8/10),
offered (due to a pending relocation overseas) for 9.8k U$ only (less than
double the cost of the upgrading…)!
JA80 mono-block amplifiers offered here, come fetched with a set of matched a
JJ El 34 quad, each (8 tubes in total). Compared to the KT 90 and KT 120 tubes,
the El 34 are supposed to offer a "more romantic and lush" sound.
The JJs are
a good choice in that respect.
are top of the crop JJ El 34, selected, tested and matched by the "Groove
tubes" company. "Groove tubes" re-labels the tubes, and stand
before their selection/s. They come with these amps.
Also, the amps are fetched with gold fuses, made by HiFi Tuning in Germany.
Please note: If bought as a package,
together with the associated JP pre-amplifier (BTW, a new stock JP80 MkII cost
new now over 20k U$, and our better one is offered separately for 7.8k U$ only, - again about less than double the cost of only the upgrading -!) then 17 k U$ will take both the amps and
Accepted payments are
in the form of: cash and carry; swift bank transfer; or PayPal (w. 3% extra if
funds comes from a CC).
Local sale preferred, but worldwide shipping
with a high professional standard of double packing is available at extra cost. Stated dimensions are actual for each amp, not for the shipping package (yet to be determined). Will charge actual costs for S$H.
Amps are currently set
on the 120V factory setting.
This is a
private sale, and no extra taxes are payable. Please check out our other offers
outstanding match for the Jadis are the Avantgarde speakers, which we also happen to have a pair for sale, or simply to
complement the audition of the electronics, in case you’ll do that ( it’s a
pair of Avantgarde Duo 2.2 sIII, in a very appealing high gloss metallic blue finish).
See our separate add for those, please.
the most honest and convincing way to buy audio equipment is to listen to it.
system is (according to quite a number of designers from the audio industry,
dealers and prominent audio enthusiasts) one of the best sounding musical
systems in GTA, if you are local, or within a reasonable distance, call for an
appointment, come, listen, be bewildered and only then conclude for yourself.
In order to verify my
