A classic 40 watt EL34 Integrated Amplifier

The Jadis Orchestra Reference is a hybrid design featuring a solid state preamp and tube output. The Reference model includes several significant upgrades over the standard Orchestra. As such, the Reference is closer to the rest of the Jadis models but it can still be offered at a price within reach of any music lover. When you combine this classic 40 watt EL34 design with Jadis' custom, hand-made transformers the result is stunning musicality at incredible value.

The Orchestra has a polished stainless steel chassis with tubes mounted on ceramic sockets with golden pins. It has 4 EL34 tubes mounted in push-pull which are driven by 2 ECC83.
It is the result of a very thorough study undertaken by Jadis with one main objective: to make a product with all the essential qualities of a high-end device at a reasonable price.
The JADIS REFERENCE version has a golden finish for front and top plates; tone controls can be added.

Reviews

This is one of those amplifiers that offer fantastic sound no matter what you play. […] It gives you a perfect sense of space, openness and airiness and a very dynamic sound. You will hear every single note as clearly as possible. When listening to your favorite music with this amp, you truly experience it as if you were witnessing a live performance...

"First and foremost, the amp's musical performance was flawless:
The Orchestra Reference was as beautifully built as the somewhat more expensive Jadis I-35. Apart from three small circuit boards - the amp is hand-wired, point-to-point. The layout is sensible, the wiring and soldering are impeccably done, and the parts quality ranges from very good to superb.

The amp’s sound was richly colorful and beautifully balanced, with very good musical drive. In the long run, I could live with the Orchestra Reference quite happily. For a (mostly) tubed integrated of this performance level to sell for under $5,000 is noteworthy. Rest assured the Jadis Orchestra Reference is extremely unlikely to disappoint. Strongly recommended."
