A direct evolution of the Lavardin Model A80, the Model A80 Reference ”gives more than an idea” of what the Model AP150 is capable of.
Its exacting circuits and power supply receive a special upgrade in order to realize the fantastic potential of our low memory technology.
Its power output remains the same as for The A80, but micro-dynamics and resolution are increased to allow the emotion and intention of the music to reach the listener. Thus also the sound stage is wider, detail is sharper and the overall temper is more mature, even though the sound balance remains respectfully neutral, as with the Model A80.
Never has a power amplifier done so much at such an affordable price, for music and the pleasure of the listener.
The full benefit of low memory distortion technology can only be appreciated when a low memory preamp such as the Model C42 or Model C62 is used to partner the Model A80 reference.
