JA - 88D 2009 Class A Amplifier
Of the many JungSon integrated hi-fi amplifiers offered during the past decade, perhaps none has had as dramatic an impact on the design landscape as the JA-88D. Introduced in 2003, it went on to become a true classic and a design icon- the best JungSon integrated amplifier so far. The JungSon JA-88D is a new class of its own showing so that High-End Audio is now accessible for many people.
The newly released JungSon JA88D-09 is an improved version of JungSon’s successful JA88D-03 Fully Balanced Class-A integrated Amplifier, which own many International awards, including a ‘Highly Commended’ amplifier award by Sound & Image Magazine. While keeping all the features of the original award-winning amplifier, the new version now has a built-in phono stage. The new phono input is switchable between moving-coil (MC) and moving-magnet (MM) modes. The 88D-09 also adds an extra line output to make it easy to connect to external recording components or to other amplifiers and subwoofers.
The JA88D-09 has a fully balanced and zero negative feedback circuit and is rated with a power output of 80-watts per channel, which is delivered in pure Class-A power. It has one balanced (XLR) input and four RCA inputs, and two pairs of speaker outputs for bi-wiring. The new version comes with a new ‘universal’ remote control that is able to be used to control all other JungSon components.
The JA-88D is the currently front-runner in the stakes for being the 'bargain buy' of the 21st century - Australian Hi Fi Magazine, September 2006

Our Customers Feedback on the JA-88D
"About six weeks ago I bought the JungSon JA-88D from you, and I want to say how great it sounds. For the first three weeks I swapped gear around it, not hearing its potential, but after that I've been blown away by it."
"It sounds so big, lush and magnificent, not 'artificially' warm or anything but totally involving and musical. I've been going through my CD collection hearing them all for the first time - such a revelation. I keep running out of superlatives when trying to describe what it's been like... amazing stuff."
"Thank you, and obviously also to JungSon!"
kind regards, Graham
