Jasmine T-200 (395 euro)
Jasmine T-200 multi-media mini tube amplifierIt's not only a wonderful mini tube amplifier but also an amazing external hi-end tube computer sound card. It's
especially designed for those who love music but have to sit opposite to computer working for hours everyday. The computer brings astonishing media to the
desk. Unfortunately, these audio systems are fatiguing and non musical. The T-200 is the best upgrade you will ever add to your computer. In fact, it will probably
outlive your computers. Absolutely tube sound: musical, warm and smooth.
"Jasmine T-200 can be connected to computer, MP3/I-Pod player, or CD player to drive traditional speakers and headphones. With the USB port , the amplifier can
be directly connected to the computer as an external USB sound card. Now, you can take advantage of endless music sources on the internet. Your computer
can be used as a sound source and play any format of music files. Your flat, sterile digital audio will jump with life. You do not have to be a hard core audiophile to
enjoy warm, musical tube sound. Its compact size will also serve as an excellent travel or dorm room system with a portable music source and a quality pair of
loudspeakers. The T-200 is the ideal fusion of retro and modern technology."
The power tubes are EL-84 compatible; I thought the included ones made the amp dull pretty much across the spectrum. Got some Tungsram EL-84's, made a NICE improvement. Can't remember what the driver tubes are, but I didn't find a suitable NOS replacement based on my first search.
I drive my Grado SR-60's with it and it's a great combo. My soon to be had SR-325i's will also go off this amp.
FYI, mine DOES have the USB input, but I haven't tried it off a PC yet.... I also have a pair of 4" Fostex horns I want to try this on (it supposedly will output 5wpc); again, gaven't made that move. I SHOULD try my K-1000's on it, though.
BTW, it has a slight hum, too, but it disappears from audibility once music starts, even fairly low-level music.
I got mine for $275 (? - I think that's what I paid) on Audiogon Auction. Seller was Vlad at Audio Mirror, nice gent.
I am so straight out at work, I am working nights and weekends. But I hope to report more on this in its different setups someday soon....
