    Line magnetic...anyone heard this amp

    The new Line Magnetic series of amps and integrated's is getting some very good press right now. One of the amps that they manufacture has a very interesting look, IMO....Name:  LM-212amp.jpg

    Anyone had the opportunity to listen to their amps? Seems like they are all SET based, BUT this new company is getting raves for their price to value.

    Looks like it came straight out of a Frankenstein movie. I bet the WAF is off the charts.

    Seems to be a riff on the old Western Electric movie theater amps. Weird enough to be like-able. "It Lives!"

    This model...the 219 IA is perhaps at the sweet spot. 300b tubes and an apparent healthy 24 watts/ch output. Name:  219ia-600x400.jpg

    Priced at around $7K. Many are swearing by this integrated.

    Mating them with Quad ESL 63s or Maggies, I will have trouble with regards to positioning them inside or outside the panels. They're capable of blocking the centerfill on the inside.

    Nah, Phil. You get to use them as Bass Traps. Perfect for mounting parallel with the back wall, LOL.

    Very interesting designs. Lots of old school. The 300B tubes in the integrated above are the drivers for the 845 output tubes.
    How much for the big amp in the OPs post.

    ..from a Dagogo review of the integrated: "It’s built like a Mack Truck (it’s almost as big and heavy), and it looks like something from Young Frankenstein’s lab – in the best possible way"...

    Not bad Mark! Maybe you should be one them there audio journalists
