Jadis, Baby!

Some of the sweetest sound I heard in the whole show was delivered by the Jadis Symphonia CD player ($3500), Jadis E-50 50Wpc integrated amplifier ($8000), and Proac 3.8s ($7500/pair).

I sat down entranced by the soundtrack to The Forbidden Games and the disc's owner leaned over and whispered in my ear, "You used to recommend records to me when I worked at Tower."


But for clarity, grace, and just locked in musical rightness, the Jadis/Proac combo just rocked my world.

Are you sure the speakers running with the Jadis were the ProAc 3.8? They have been discontinued for a few years. I would have imagined they'd be using the newest version, the D38.

Whispered in your era? How old are you?I was surprised that the Jadis demo room was so empty on the two occasions I visited. I was glad because I got to play some cuts off the Clash's "London Calling". The system was definitely smooth and graceful but did seem to lack a certain punch, perhaps because the amp only packs 35 wpc. Still one of the best rooms I heard.
