Update - If you purchase the LSA I will offer you the following special pricing on my Usher Mini Dancer 2s ($1,900), Bryston BDA-1 DAC ($1,200), Acoustic Zen Satori or Silver Reference II RCA Cables ($350), and Bybee RCA Purifiers ($350).
I am downsizing my system and selling absolutely the best integrated I have owned. I purchased this directly from John Tucker of LSA in February of last year and was told by him it was his personal amp. It is a Signature model and has the Active Tube Load circuit. The LSA has everything I was looking for - power, clarity, detail, and musicality. Instruments have spacing and are in a 3 dimensional performance. It also includes a Phono Preamp and the ability to use Balanced or RCA inputs. The LSA has a tubed preamp section which allows flexibility to your system. I will include the Telefunkens I am currently using (fantastic tubes!) along with Amperex, Philips, and the Electro Harmonix that came with it. All of them sounded good in their own ways.
This Signature comes with the new style shipping box from LSA which makes this monster easy and safe to ship. It also has the original protective plastic coating still on the front of the panel and the LSA remote which like the amp is built like a tank.
I have over 100 positive feedbacks on Audiogon so buy with confidence.
From a Stereo MoJo Review "The LSA Signature is not only a contender in the world of $15,000 and up high-end separates, it may well be vying for the crown. The Signature proves that design and technology have advanced so far in the last few years that the delineation between an integrated amp and separate amp and preamps has definitely blurred if not eroded altogether."
I am rating it an 8 to be conservative but I can’t find any scratches on it and it sounds fantastic. I still have the plastic coating on the front panel!
If you have no feedback on Audiogon or are just tire kicking please save us both time and do not respond.
