Goldmunds Job line is a bit is a quandry. A company known for exquisite hi-end and high performance electronics opts to create a more affordable line of products by simplifying the cosmetics and changing the name.
The INT Integrated is really the Job 225 amplifier AND the Job Pre2 AND a wonderful 24/384 PCM/DSD 128 USB DAC all nicely rolled into a clean package. It should really cost over $5000 since that's' the total if you purchased each separately. Yet, its comes in under $2000! Leave it to the Swiss!
The Job line was also not just farmed out to China to design and engineer a less expensive line. The actual Goldmund team designed and builds them right in Geneva. It even comes in a Goldmund box! (Ironically, on the outside this is the same unit as the Goldmund Metis 7 with a price tag of $13,000.). Could this be the best value in hi-end audio ever? You'll have to have a listen for yourself...or looks the interior photos on-line.
The INT's power amplifier is capable of a clean 225 watts per channel. The DAC allows for USB, coaxial and optical inputs, so that's just too easy. The single analog input is clean and minimalistic so there's no noise and its very quiet in operation.
This is a fantastic solution for an office or small listening room where a couple sources need a refined amp and pre with easy operation. The remote is also simple and easy to operate.
While Goldmund stopped producing the Job products (likely because they were priced ridiculously low for what your getting), they still support and honor all warranties. This is also why prices are going up and these are rarely seen for sale.
This is a super clean unit with low hours, the original box, remote, manual and power cord.
