Model IS REFERENCE January 2010 WHAT HIFI UK read more

- The IS Reference is one of the most musically compelling amplifiers we've ever heard at this price level
- The IS Reference is amazingly fluid in its delivery, making almost all rival amplifiers sound mechanical in comparison
- A sonic superstar with nuanced dynamics, crisp timing and impressive detail; class-leading fluidity; easy to use
- If you want a telepathic link into what the recording artist wants you to feel, the IS Reference gets closer than any rival we've heard.

The Lavardin IT is a truly great amplifier and the standard by which all other amps must be judged. My recommendation for our award for most wanted product of the Year? Obviously. But more: most wanted product of my lifetime.

"Amazing grace" The Lavardin IS Reference is a true reference that every music lover should make a top priority to audition. A word of warning though: after experiencing the Lavardin´┐Żs grace and resolution, otherwise very good electronics will sound crude and false. The ease with which it opens the aesthetic world of music to the listener is priceless.
