This special price is for a FLAWLESS demo unit. I am a one many operation, this amp was touched only by me.
new Mistral Plus amplifier from Richard Bews. I have long requested a
"budget" amp from LFD. One with MM and MC phono stage built in.

product Richard has ever designed is the best in its class.
Gene Rubin Audio "PLUS" version Mistral.
I am paying the extra money to have a seriously upgraded phono stage
built into the units that I receive from LFD. My exclusive "PLUS"
version uses the same circuit as the LFD Phono LE and powers from
additional windings off the main transformer. In the standard Mistral
2018, the phono circuit is a simple op-amp with small transformer. I
figure since most of my customers are playing LP's, some extra
investment in a superb phono stage is what you guys would want. Again, the Mistral PLUS version is only available at Gene Rubin Audio!
I highly recommend the use of LFD AC cord and speaker wires with this amp.
From Richard Bews: "The
Power amplifier section is 50w/channel using bipolar technology,
output protection using a chip that powers a relay, so NO fuses
required. Theoretically, there should be thermal limiting, if the
chassis/output devices gets too hot.
PSU is oversized for better sound quality, but the output is limited
to voltage rails of +/- 35V so power output is limited, it cannot be
increased. It sounds powerful for the 50W rating, but technically the
limited power, does not limit the sound quality (quite similar to
Mistral is essentially a LE(V) with a bipolar 50W/channel power
amplifier section. The Mistral is the NEW entry level LFD amplifier,
since once the LE(VI) comes out, LFD amplification will have a better
sound but will be at a higher price point."--Designer Richard Bews
