LM-845 Premium – Integrated Amplifier – Single Ended 845 – 2x30W
The LM-845 Premium is the result of many years of research on the 845 triodes Single Ended design. Thanks to its exceptional design and manufacturing quality, it is fast becoming the absolute reference in the high-end amplifiers world. With a power output of 2x30W, it can be used with most of the existing reference speakers.
The LM-845 Premium is a combination of two units: One is the amplifier unit and the other is Outputs unit. In the amplifier unit the main amplifier and power supply parts are included while in the outputs unit output transformer and speaker outputs parts are included.
Amplifier unit and outputs unit are connected with two separate well-built connectors and cables for which you can put up and down or left and right.
All tube Integrated with 12AX7 input tubes, 310A signal amplification stage, 300B driver tubes and 845 output tubes. Well selected and matched tubes. Tubes we chose are Shuguang 12AX7, Line Magnetic 310A, Shuguang 300B and Shuguang 845.
Two user bias controls for 300B and 845 have been used for bias adjustment and two meters has been added to the front plate to allow you to monitor bias with ease.
Negative Feedback switch is on the front plate that you can choose between two levels of NFB to enjoy the different sound outputs.
In LM-845 Premium it includes eight transformers. Two pieces of power transformers, two output transformers, two coupling driver transformers, two chokes. In order to have a stable and better power supply, we have designed two pieces of specially designed Toroid power transformers in Balance. EI type of output transformers is installed in the outputs unit separately to lower interfere from the external radio frequency.
LM-513PA – Mono Amplifier – Push Pull 845 – 1x160W (Price for a pair)
The mono amplifier LM-513PA is a Push-Pull amplifier with 4x 845 tubes in pure Class A amplification and delivers 1x160W. The use of high-quality components (Multicap, Philips BC filter, Motorola) hand-made construction with the finest point-to-point wiring for the most part is the guarantee of exemplary reliability.
The massive H30 mono power amplifiers from Hegel play any loudspeaker in the world with ease and authority. The H30 is our best power amplifier ever, and is definitely a combatant for being the best power amplifier in the world. The H30 is developed as a mono block, but there is also the possibility to use it as a stereo power amplifier to start with if you are on a budget. Progress is a one way street and so for our power amplifiers. The H30 is using a new and improved version of the patented Hegel SoundEngine amplifier technology. This further reduce all types of distortion. In addition to the improve SoundEngine we are also using the highest possible level of the Hegel FET-technology in the input stage and the voltage gain stage.
LM-88IA – Integrated Amplifier – Push Pull KT88 – 2x42W
Forty-two watts per channel, Class AB Integrated Stereo Amplifier with KT88 output power tubes, 6CL8A and 12BH7 input tubes. Tubes we selected for the amplifier is Electro Harmonix 12BH7, Mullard 6CL8A and JJ Electronics KT88.
Well selected and matched tubes. 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.
LM-88IA Amplifier can operate in two different ways Auto-biased or Fixed Bias. You can select the one you prefer. Power output for Auto-bias mode is 45 watts while for fixed bias it is 30 watts per channel. Once worked in Auto-bias mode it outputs a more warmth sound and go near to the way of Class A operation.
Different from other inputs Pre-In offers you a possibility to connect to some other Preamplifier so that you can the LM-88IA as a power amplifier.
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.
Audio Grade of components for LM-88IA: Japanese ALPS volume potentiometer, Multicap coupling Capacitors, American MIT Coupling Capacitors, German MCAP Coupling Capacitors, etc.
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.
The Hegel H20 incorporates the latest version of the Hegel FET-technology. A practical benefit of the H20 FET-technology is a more rhythmic sound. It is simply better at re-creating a bass line. Another vital element is the removal of harmonic echoes in the higher frequencies, which result in a lot more detail and still a smoother and more natural sound.
Pathos Inpol 2 – Integrated Amplifier
Is the latest creation from Pathos, so-called because in the design Pathos presents the 2nd generation of their proprietary INPOL® technology.
It is also a completely balanced dual-mono configuration – easily recognized by the styling.
INPOL®, which carries a worldwide patent and gave birth to the multi-award winning products TT and InPower, has undergone advanced evolution.
The INPOL2 is a unique amplifier in many aspects and its sound quality will simply astound.
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.

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.
