The Jadis DA-88S Mk II is not a good tube integrated amplifier. It is a superb one. It deploys KT-120 output tubes—a total of eight—to deliver a very robust 60 watts that can drive big loudspeakers like Wilson’s XLF with aplomb. The DA-88S Mk II is self-biasing for ease of use and features a balance control, something that has gone out of fashion but can be quite useful. Its imposing hand-wound transformers clearly have a salubrious effect upon the purity of the sound. The Jadis allies liquidity with great dynamic power. Its sonic character is worlds removed from current solid-state designs. This is a unit engineered by and for tube lovers. The resolution, palpability, and, above all, sense of sweep conveyed by the Jadis are seldom less than glorious.

The Jadis DA88S sound is so harmonically rich, it brings out the musician and the dancer in all of us. There is no passive interaction  with music - this amp gets past the normal hi-fi perspectives and simply plays music with passion.
