    It is an I-88 http://www.jadis-electronics.com/en/i88-52.php

    I like the aesthetics of the I-88 as much as ANY Jadis piece. The sound is VERY GOOD with 90 Watts of Pure Class A. Even has a built in dac and a remote.

    Hi Ked,

    Love reading your reviews. Insightful, detailed, and honest. One comment if I may.

    You mentioned in another thread that Fremer's room was not well suited for judging (due to all the clutter I assume) the quality of audio gear. Well, this room looks as cluttered, if not more, than MF's room yet you seemed to have liked what you heard.

    I, for one, could not relax and enjoy music in a room like that. Way too much stuff.

    Best.

    His room is cluttered but quite big, not small. The smaller speakers like magico and Alta have more than enough space from the walls. Only the Alexandria behind them, there temporarily, does not show you depth from the front wall. The pics also don't show you how far back the rear wall is

    Also, this room is meant to swap gear around to get flavors, not to do a final set up and listen to one system like Mike's.

    You go here to get flavors of gear. Do you want SS on Magico? Valves? Etc
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    Thx Ked.....that's being very kind. It's a ZOO But it works and like you say customer's come in and want to hear lot's of different combinations and I've found they like to do it in the same space. When I do permanent installations in clients homes/rooms of course it's usually one set of speakers and electronics/sources.

    The room litereally changes from week to week....keeps it fun. Don't forget that this is a store where changing equipment is a constant situation.

    It's funny, if you look at the pic from Ked's last visit in 2016 the M3's are the only thing that is the same in both pics. Every other item is different.

    People have a hard time relating to the Rhapsody space from pics unless they've visited. Like David Chesky said "It has a vibe in here".

    nice one, yes thought it looked a bit smaller than 88s.
    still a nice unit though.
    these are some very musical integrateds; and now the current models have some oomph as well as finesse.
