And one of the best amplifiers in the world has just become even more significantly exceptional.
Introducing the new evolutionary higher end version of the Lavardin Model IT ...
Limited Edition in celebration of Lavardin's 15th Anniversary
Sames specs as Model IT, but internally upgraded, with a red-orange faceplate..
"Our new technologies have only one goal : musical enjoyment. Our research to find out the dominant factors for the musicality of amplifiers allowed us to discover previously unknown non linear distortion which we called "memory distortion"(TM).
When the finest tube designs produce one tenth the amount of this newly revealed distortion, only our revolutionary components and circuitry knock it back - to one one-thousandth of what it was ... and this, anyone can hear.
Since the early days our Model IT integrated amplifier has been regarded by music lovers and international audio Press as the absolute World Reference amplifier for sheer musical enjoyment and transparency : a true Living Legend.
Then we introduced the Model IS and recently the Model IS Reference which include our exclusive new designs for an incredible value for money ratio.
Our technologies are also revolutionary when applied to interconecting cables, for sources as well as for loudspeakers.
For the 15th anniversary of our legendary Model IT, we have concentrated our latest research in an exclusive and rare refined version : the Lavardin Technologies IT-15.
