This unit is barely broken in and the only reason I am selling is a fellow local audiophile friend is offering his amp that is five times the price of this amp at a price I can’t refuse and no need to keep so many amps around that are not being used. This is an incredible integrated/amp that will hold its own and in most cases outperform units costing many times its modest price. It’s power rating is deceptive because it drove my proac d48r speakers to ear deafening levels in a medium sized room. This unit is incredibly well built and posessses all the classic tube euphonious we love but with rock solid tight control over the bass. Must be the huge transformers. This thing is solid and incredibly well built. Buy from a longtime trusted audiogon member. Below is some more info on this amazing piece of audio gear.
Forty-two watts per channel, Class AB Integrated Stereo Amplifier with KT88 output power tubes, 6CL8A and 12BH7 input tubes. Tubes we selected for the amplifier is Electro Harmonix 12BH7, Mullard 6CL8A and JJ Electronics KT88.
Well selected and matched tubes. No matter it is the Pre-stage or power stage of tubes we select and choose the best matching ones to use on the same unit of amplifier to get the best sound quality out of it.
LM-88IA Amplifier can operate in two different ways Auto-biased or Fixed Bias. You can select the one you prefer. Power output for Auto-bias mode is 45 watts while for fixed bias it is 30 watts per channel. Once worked in Auto-bias mode it outputs a more warmth sound and go near to the way of Class A operation.
Different from other inputs Pre-In offers you a possibility to connect to some other Preamplifier so that you can the LM-88IA as a power amplifier.
Specially designed Toroid transformers made of Z11 Core for power supply and two Japanese Audio grade EI types of output transformers with wide bandwidth are applied. All transformers and chokes are encapsulated and installed separately on the amplifier to avoid and lower the disturbance between each other.
