Lavardin are a small French HiFi firm founded in 1996, who make a handful of very well designed amplifiers. Known for their no frills and minimalistic approach, you won’t find any remote control or headphone output here. Phono stage and tape loop are factory options. A simple black Alu case, a handful of line level inputs and 35W of lush sounding output. No fuss, just smooth sounding music that’ll make you want to get up and dance.
These amps don’t show up very often, and this ex-demo example is in pristine condition and under full warranty. Not cheap, but still a great saving off the £2K list price.
