Line Magnetic
« on: February 18, 2014, 23:25 »
My Black Beauty finally arrived at my door step, the big Frankenstein-looking Line Magnetic 219IA Integrated Amplifier is really something. I always wanted to have a chance to play Tube amp again but because of Kids ,my mission is incomplete. To many audiophiles, the word "Made In China" is a big "No". I do have the same feelings before i got into this amp. I'm a person that don't really cares what reviewer say, i only Listen with my own ears rather then reading reviews. A 24 watts Integrated Amplifier Outlook workmanship is fantastic, If u r talking about the sound, "Yes" is my cup of tea. I'm not pushing others to buy this amp but if u r look at a amp that cost around 5K, this is a amp that u shouldn't be miss. It sound much much more then it really cost.

If got open house, please let me know.
I'll be interested to drop by to have a listen..

Ever since they came out, i was fascinated with their steampunkish design.
Never really got to listen to them intimately.

I have listen to the few range, the 845 and KT120 with the gold front panel are quite good.
