A Classic 40 Watt Push-Pull Integrated Amplifier
Specially upgraded North American model delivers best-in-class performance and value.
The Orchestra Black is a classic 40 watt EL34 push-pull tube integrated amplifier. It features point-to-point wiring, high quality selected components and Jadis’ own in-house hand-wound custom transformers. It is hand-built in France and comes with remote control included.
The Orchestra Black was specially made for the North American market to Bluebird’s specifications. It is a derivative of the popular Orchestra Reference but it includes a tube upgrade from EL34 to the more robust 6CA7 industrial tubes and some proprietary internal tweaks. These changes produce a noticeable sonic improvement. The gold faceplates and transformer covers were replaced with black to give a more modern industrial look and reduce the cost.
As a result of the above effort, the Orchestra Black sounds better and costs less than its predecessor. At $4,995 US, with remote included, the Orchestra Black delivers outstanding sonic performance and value for money.
Jadis is highly regarded worldwide for the quality of their transformers which inform the famous Jadis sound and set Jadis amplifiers apart from the crowd. We are thrilled to be able to bring such a high quality hand-built classic design with Jadis’ extraordinary transformers to the market at such excellent value.

The Jadis acquitted itself with poise and control but also with color, texture, and extraordinary levels of involvement. The Jadis didn’t just reproduce this number – it played it. Very strongly recommended.

Jadis serves up an incredibly seductive presentation that is unique in its ability to convey the emotion and nuance of music. Rich sound to match the elegant design aesthetic.

Velvety smooth but with clarity and transparency. It was something, it was so good, so out of its time, i was lost in it, that's the best thing, isn't that what audio's about? This would be a great way to go, it feels great, it sounds great.
