Model ISx INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER The Model ISx is a full width design with unrivaled Lavardin Technology, build quality and design philosophy, in particular the circuits and components which virtually eliminate the effects of memory distortion. The ISx is extremely transparent over the full bandwidth with superb micro dynamics. It’s never aggressive, clumsy or confused unlike many other transistor and digital amplifiers. Lavardin Technologies amps are the least ‘load sensitive’ amplifiers ever made. Consequently, virtually all speakers will be driven at their best, whatever their size and technology. This fantastic power handling allows measurments of over 104W per channel into 2 ohm loads and 50w on 8ohm.

Technical Data
Model ISx REFERENCE INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER The Model ISx Reference is a direct evolution of the Model ISx, and it gives ‘more than an idea’ of what Lavardin’s legendary Model IT, is capable of. Its exacting circuits and power supply receive special upgrades to further allow the fantastic potential of low memory distortion technology to be heard to its full benefit. The power output remains the same as for the Model ISx, but micro-dynamics and resolution are increased to allow greater expression of the feeling and intention of the music. The sound stage is also wider, detail is more focused and the presentation is more mature, even if the sound balance remains respectfully neutral, as with the Model ISx. Never has an amplifier done so much at such an affordable price, for music and for the pleasure of the listener.

Model ITx INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER The ITx is a unique technological achievement resulting from 12 years of research and thousands of hours of listening tests. The elegant flagship of the Lavardin Technologies range is a stunning demonstration of the significance of Lavardin’s discoveries of the sound degradation caused by the ‘memory effect’ of semi-conductors used in all solid state amplifiers, and how they’ve eradicated it in theirs. The Model ITx is a minimalist design and uses extremely accurate, high performance ‘memory free’ circuitry. There is a purity and clarity here that no other amplifier can achieve, making the choice of the ITx over competitors a natural one.
