Innamorata (In-nam-o-ra'-ta) From Italian; To cause to fall in love, a woman with whom someone is in love, a mistress.
Behold the Wells Audio "Innamorata". Perhaps the best amplifier in
the world? A 120 wpc solid state design that is heavily biased into
class "A" power and employs very little feedback. The Innamorata also
incorporates Bybee quantum AC filtering as well as being the first audio
design to use the Bybee Labs revolutionary "Music Rails" for up to -45
db of DC noise reduction. A unique combination of harmonic richness,
tonal beauty and detail are revealed. In a sea of like sounding, washed
out and over damped amplifiers the Wells Audio Innamorata is an island
of musical bliss. Please take the time to audition the truly
one-of-a-kind experience that is the "Innamorata".

The Innamorata amplifier makes considerable use of the Bybee purifier
technology to remove noise from the AC power in. Below is a brief
description excerpted from the Bybeetech.com website:
What Is Quantum Purification?
Jack Bybee's Quantum Purifiers were
originally developed for military applications, many of which are still
highly classified. These amazing devices have been used for years by
knowledgeable audio and video enthusiasts to reach levels of signal
purity and transparency unattainable prior to their introduction.
Within any playback system, musical and
visual information is transmitted by electrons flowing through
conductors. As electrons interact with the conductive materials of
cables and circuits, very low-level (quantum) noises are generated. As
quantum noise energy accumulates in the propagating signal, low-level
details pertaining to ambience, soundstage, timbre, dynamics, color
fidelity and picture resolution are obscured, robbing the presentation
of vividness and life.
Bybee Quantum Purifiers operate on the
quantum mechanical level to regulate the flow of electrons that make up
the signal (picture a metering light regulating freeway traffic flow).
Current flow within the Quantum Purifier is unimpeded and ideal (think
of the unencumbered flow of traffic on a lightly traveled expressway).
During transit through the Quantum Purifier, quantum noise energy is
stripped off the electrons, streamlining their flow through ensuing
conductors. Unwanted quantum noise energy dissipates as heat within the
Quantum Purifier rather than emerging as a layer of contamination
residue over the audio/video information.
The benefits of this process extend
beyond the physical length of the Quantum Purifier. As electrons speed
through the purifier, a "slipstream" effect is formed which facilitates
current flow in the surrounding conductors of the playback system.
Introducing Bybee Quantum Purification into the electron path reduces
quantum noise and increases signal velocity, resulting in performance
improvement beyond what is attainable by any cable alone, no matter how

“It is so rich, so beautiful sounding, so well
balanced, so engaging that I think one would have to be running truly
awful equipment for it not to sound super in their rig. If you put the
Innamorata in your system and it doesn’t sound right, start removing the
other components! ”

Innamorata, boasts a certain textural liquidity and purity and appears
far more full of zest and powerful on the extremes, and that allows it
to flourish with a bevy of different (read: difficult to drive)
loudspeakers. The Innamorata
seems to embody and complement what many have expressed in describing
the effects of Bybee products. To hear an amplifier capitalize on these
sonic virtues, then take it up another notch or two with the Music
Rails, and not cost in excess of $20,000, is a remarkable feat.
Realizing this, I stood with my mouth agape and thought…the world of
high-end audio just got a lot more competitive. Clement Perry, Stereo Times, October 2013
listening to the Innamorata for an hour or so, a friend commented that
the Innamorata ‘sounds like the best tube amp I ever heard, except that
it has better bass than any other amplifier I’ve heard.’ That’s about as
succinct yet accurate a summation as I could come up with. The
Innamorata has none of the over-damped harmonic sterility I hear in so
many me-too solid-state amplifiers. Its presentation is warm and
emotionally engaging, drawing me in for hours with no listening fatigue,
regardless of the kind of music playing… There isn’t a lot of surprise
with my conclusions. Yes, I have purchased the Innamorata. Looking
ahead, I don’t expect to find its equal any time soon.
