The DA88S MkII features numerous component and chassis upgrades and a totally new board. It's a robust 60 watt, pure class-A, KT120 integrated amplifier with five line inputs and remote control included. Thanks to Jadis' custom-made signature transformers the DA88S can effortlessly drive all but the most difficult loudspeakers.
The DA88 produces a warm and rich yet very detailed fast sound with tremendous dynamics and a large soundstage, and was named The Absolute Sound Product of the Year winner for good reason. Tube complement is eight KT120 tubes, 2 12AX7 and 3 12AU7. Dimensions are 20" x 16" x 8.7", weight 88lbs. Available with gold or silver faceplate option at no extra cost.
Jacob Heilbrunn, The Absolute Sound
I listened to an integrated amplifier that wasn't merely good - it was 'spectacular'. The Jadis demonstrated a dynamic alacrity and vividness and prowess - a puissance - that placed it in the very top echelon of audio equipment regardless of price. There was no syrupy sound here - just superb dimensionality, iron grip, and unrelenting drive. The jump factor of the Jadis is off the charts. Put otherwise, it sounds as stunning as it looks.
The Absolute Sound, Upper End Integrated Product of the Year, January 2016
The Jadis DA88 Mk II is not a good tube integrated amplifier. It is a superb one. It deploys KT-120 output tubes - a total of eight - to deliver a very robust 60 watts that can drive big loudspeakers like Wilson's XLF with aplomb. The DA88 is self-biasing for ease of use. Its imposing hand-wound transformers clearly have a salubrious [heathly, beneficial, pleasurable] effect upon the purity of the sound.
The Jadis allies liquidity with great dynamic power. Its sonic character is worlds removed from current solid-state designs. This is a unit engineered by and for tube lovers. The resolution, palpability, and, above all, sense of sweep conveyed by the Jadis are seldom less than glorious.
