I am listing my non-used/excess pieces. It is a wonderful integrated amplifier from German Lyric Audio. It has the optional pre-out and ships with KT150 tubes yielding 2x70 watts output. I used it for about 2 years, then have had it in storage in my home. It is in perfect condition. Tubes have maybe 500 hours on them (I have several systems). It can utilize not only the KT150 output tubes but also EL34, KT88 and KT120 drivers. I bought it new from an authorized dealer, and have had no issues other than the remote, and that was replaced with an upgraded one from the manufacturer. The unit is very heavy (about 75 lbs). Original box. Service (should it ever be needed) available from importer, I checked. I have a new set of KT150 tubes that I will include at my asking price.
This from the importer:
Designed and manufactured in Germany by hand, the new Lyric line of integrated amplifiers deliver extraordinary performance in a luxurious and modern aluminum chassis. At the heart of the class AB integrated amplifier are the newly developed output and power transformers with EI-core, which not only guarantee the highest level of performance, but also an even more powerful, more vivid and more complex sound.
Flexibility in tube selection: The Lyric Ti140 can optionally operate with EL34, KT88, KT120 or KT150. The input stage is equipped with a 12AX7, the phase reversal is realized with a 12AU7. A strong 6SN7-double triode serves as a driver for the output tubes. To adjust the bias there is a special measuring circuit, which indicates the optimal operating point depending on the type of tube.
- For individual sound tuning, the feedback can be adjusted separately in three stages for 4 and 8 ohms.
- Optional extension of the five high-level inputs to a pre-out for example, for an active subwoofer - possible.
- Implementation of Buffer Amp possible, which is necessary with long cables or low impedances of the connected devices.
- Control the volume, input selection and mute function on the remote control.
- The receiver can learn codes using a RC5 remote control.
