The Adrenalin amplifier represents the point of arrival of the INPOL (“Inseguitore a Pompa Lineare” – Linear Pump Tracker) concept.
The essence of such an apparatus is that of a tube amplifier featuring a very sensitive and refined timbre, combined with a surprising and amazing output capacity.
It really seems that Pathos designers and technicians achieved their goal: an iron fist concealed in a velvet glove.
InPol (Inseguitore Pompa Linear – Linear Pump Follower) is a system patented by Pathos Acoustics which has enjoyed great success and won many awards.
Inpol devices have a special sonic personality obtainable only by means of this particular circuit design – fully balanced in Class A using a single solid-state component in follower configuration, with high current gain and with voltage gain together. The valve amplifier amplifies the input signal voltage and InPol supplies the current to drive the loudspeakers without any further amplification. In this way, the signal is entrusted to the valves and becomes a true copy of the original, with all the quality, purity and harmonic content of the original.
This technology allows an increase in the theoretical output in pure Class A of between 25% and 50% together with a low output impedance which is fundamental for the damping factor and further improved by the double InPol.

LM-150IA- Integrated Amplifier – Push Pull KT120 – 2x100W
One hundred watts per channel, Class AB Integrated Stereo Amplifier with KT150 output power tubes, 12AX7, 12AU7 and 6SN7 input tubes. 12AX7, 12AU7 and 6SN7 are for three stages of signal amplification while KT150 for the power amplification.
Well selected and matched tubes. Tubes we chose are Shuguang 12AX7, Shuguang 12AU7, Electro Harmonix 6SN7 and Tung-sol KT150. No matter it is the Pre-stage or power stage of tubes we select and choose the best matching ones to use on the same unit of the amplifier to get the best sound quality out of it.
Different from other inputs Pre-In offers you a possibility to connect to some other Preamplifier so that you can the LM-150IA as a power amplifier.
User bias control has been used for bias adjustment including 2 vu-meters.
Specially designed Toroid transformers made of Z11 Core for power supply and two Japanese Audio grade EI types of output transformers with wide bandwidth are applied. All transformers and chokes are encapsulated and installed separately on the amplifier to avoid and lower the disturbance between each other.
Japanese ALPS volume potentiometer, American MIT and German Mcap coupling Capacitors etc Audio grade of components have been applied.
Pathos Ethos: Integrated amplifier (HiDac Optional)
The edged exterior of the Éthos does not provide any clues about how to control the amplifier. Like with the Logos to operate the Éthos is a hit and miss trial and error affair. Both recessed buttons on the front panel are difficult to access and they carry no marks or descriptions. The remote controller (by the way very elegant slick piece of metal) will not help a lot as it also has just anonymous buttons. Either a user looks into the amp’s manual or just presses something to see what it does. This is a kind of trade-off for the clean Italian design,
Other than that the Éthos is built with great attention to detail, the selection of parts, craftsmanship and internal layout scream with quality and care. I loved the amp’s heatsinks that are cast in the shape of Pathos’ logo.
The central part is occupied by a turquoise alphanumeric display that is dimmable. The power switch can be found at the rear panel and there is no need to power the amp off as it stays in a standby mode at idle, A ‘progress bar’ on the display will inform you that the Éthos is waking up – it takes no more than 30 seconds before all circuits are stabilized.

LM-503PA – Mono Amplifier – Single Ended 845 – 1x24W (Price for a pair)
The LM-503PA monoblocs have been created from an original design of Western Electric. It uses a single ended 845 output stage with Full Music 300B drivers. Pre-amplifier stage uses a special Line Magnetic tube, the 310A.
The rectifier tube is a 5U3C and the power line is filtered by two special chokes. User bias controls for 300B and 845 are used for bias adjustment with a specific VU meter to allow you to monitor bias with ease.
Pathos Inpower – Monoblock Power Amplifier
InPower monoblock power amplifiers represent the evolution of the INPOL® circuit, originally created with the birth of the T.T. integrated amplifier.
The purpose of InPower project was to design an amplifier able to drive all loudspeakers.
Even in spacious listening environments. All this with the same state-of-the-art sound quality which has been universally bestowed upon the T.T.
LM-211IA- Integrated Amplifier – Push Pull EL34 – 2x32W
The Line Magnetic integrated amplifier LM-211IA is a push-pull amplifier with 4x EL34 tubes in Class AB amplification and delivers 2x15W in triode mode and 2x32W in ultra-linear mode. It has 4 balanced line inputs and 4/8Ω output groups.
The rear-illuminated front panel meter is used to adjust polarization of the tubes. The use of high-quality components (Realcap capacitors, ALPS potentiometer) wired in the air, for the most part, is the guarantee of exemplary reliability. Its transformers output are of EI type, specially designed for power supply. The LM-211IA delivers dynamic, rich and natural sound.
The Hegel HD30 is the ultimate digital control centre. It does everything you can dream of, and does so with world-class quality. There is an abundance of inputs, ranging from balanced AES/EBU and BNC connectors, to Network and USB connections – with the latter also accepting DSD signals. The built-in volume attenuator allows you to connect directly to a power amplifier or a pair of active loudspeakers. Highly advanced power supplies and careful lay-out brings the noise floor down towards a mindblowing – 150dB. In
LM-216IA – Integrated Amplifier – Push Pull KT88 – 2x38W
The Line Magnetic integrated amplifier LM-216IA is a push-pull amplifier with 4x KT88 tubes in Class AB amplification and delivers 2x22W in triode mode and 2x38W in ultra-linear mode. The LM-216iA delivers dynamic, rich, and natural sound.
