About product

DESCRIPTION

Based on the same general design as the JA80, this masterpiece of equipment offers the same sound quality with an unbelievable capability to drive the most difficult existing loads.

Capable of 160 watts per channel in pure Class A and 200W with the KT150, its unique power capability and dynamic behaviour are combined for the first time in vacuum-tube amplifier history, with the ultra low distortion and transparency of the best low-power exotic Class A designs.

Its low frequency performance is unequalled.  Built with the same standard as the now famous JA80, the JA200 shares its sound consistency and unmatched reliability year after year.

The output stage of the JA200 uses 10 KT88 on each mono amp.  For thermal dissipation reasons, the JA200 is built on four chassis : two amplifiers and two power supplies.   Each chassis is the size of a JA80 mono amp.

The JA200 will take you where very few have gone before; 160 watts of pure class A power. This four box set of ultimate musicality features two mono-block amplifiers each with its own separate power supply. Probably the last amp you'll ever buy...

The most important and obvious characteristic of this equipment is the sensation that more information is coming through from the source to my ears. And when I say "more information," I mean significantly more information, whether we're talking top-to-bottom frequency response, transient response, dynamics, image width/depth, low-level information retrieval, whatever. In addition to more information, it seems to me that I'm hearing better information in terms of its neutrality, transparency, timbre, instrumental color....

About brand

Jadis Electronics

Encouraged by this success, he decided in 1983 to rationalise his production and participate to the fundation of the JADIS Company. In the beginning, the amplifier was manufactured unit by unit, from the original plans, but quickly Mr Calmettes turned out his own technicians, who were able to produce electronics in accordance with his philosophy.

The quality of these amplifiers is, for the most part, provided by their output transformer. With an original conception and being as good as indestructible, it gives the amplifier absolute stability, whatever the load may be. Entirely made within the JADIS Company in Villedubert, it is wound by hand and then it is poured into a special resin, guaranteeing maximum soundproofing and thermal stability. As for the power, the specifications are amazing: the maximum acceptable power is 2500 W before saturation.

Being the only ones in the world which respect these specifications, the JADIS amplifiers give fantastic dynamics as much in the bass tones as in the higher trebles. They present a total lack of coloration, and most of them work in pure class-A.
For these reasons, it constitutes the ideal amplification system for all acoustic speakers, whatever the impedance curve, the type of functioning, or the efficiency may be.
