The Model ISx Reference is a direct evolution of the Model ISx, and thanks to its additional features, it "gives more than an idea" of what our legendary Model IT, is capable of.
Its exacting circuits and power supply receive special upgrades in order to further allow the fantastic potential of our low memory technology to come to fruition.
The power output remains the same as for the Model ISx, but micro-dynamics and resolution are increased to allow greater expression of the feeling and intention of the music.
Thus also the sound stage is wider, detail is sharper and the presentation is more mature, even if the sound balance remains respectfully neutral as with the Model ISx.
Its extreme transparency, over the full bandwidth is in contrast with midband focused transparency of the best tube amplifiers. Its micro dynamics, never aggressive, clumsy or confused is in contrast with almost all transistor and digital amplifiers.
Never has an amplifier done so much at such an affordable price, for music and for the pleasure of the listener.
ZERO SIDE EFFECT REMOTE VOLUME CONTROL
Today's digital sources musical drama is the use of their digital volume control, remote controled or not. It simply destroys the musicality what ever the price of the DAC, server or computer. Now, for a much better sound, simply set both DAC and computer at full level and set the volume thanks to the Lavardin amplifier remote handset.
MM PHONO INPUT
To get the full magic of vinyl reproduction, Model ISx can be fitted with our exceptional internal phono moving magnet input module.
The direct connection to the heart of the amplifier guaranties better sonic results than any external devices.

For smooth integration of a Surround Processor into High End Audio System, Model ISx can have an optional BYPASS input (input 1) with fixed amplification fitted. For ultimate quality, both AV and stereo signals are routed directly without any additional bypass switch.
Prestigious hi-fi magazine refers to Lavardin as “one of hi-fi best-kept secrets”, due to its small range of amp combinations, specialization in this kind of products, and very few changes over the years. However, the new “x” series of Lavardin amps draw some attention from hi-fi magazines in last several months. What Hi-Fi? is one of them!
“There are more glamorous alternatives available for this kind of money, yet if you put sound quality first we can’t think of any that can match this Lavardin” – it is a statement that presents the value of this amazing French hi-fi brand. Sound quality before everything else; that’s something that Audio Magic prefers as well.
