Lab12

Lab12 Integre4

Integre4 was designed from the ground up to be the epicenter of any contemporary high-end audio system, with the ability to drive any pair of loudspeakers with gusto and a highly involving nature. Integre4 produces a mighty 2 x 65 Watts using two KT-150 tubes per channel. The onboard regulated high-voltage power supply guarantees an absolutely noise-free signal, whilst eleven low ESR and high capacity capacitors provide instant power on demand and ultra linear output transformers ensure the utmost dynamic, open and natural sound, that extends across the complete frequency range.In addition, a high-quality OLED display offers multiple adjustments and a state-of-the-art monitoring system acts as central digital processor and protection system by providing a soft-start for the output tubes, which will extend their useful life considerably by showing the tubes usage hours etc. Beneath the chassis, Integre4 hides a complex and sophisticated operating system that provides constant monitoring of all tubes and high-power electronic components, protecting them from any kind of harmful damage. Bias can be adjusted manually via the built-in and high-quality current metering system and instant selectable anode current allows the use of any octal type tube – a tube rollers dream. But the feature set doesn’t end here. Integre4’s dedicated headphone circuit fully exploits the amplifier’s power output stage in absence of any OPamps. Yes, Integre4 can act as a true high-performance headphone amplifier, too. As all Lab12 products, Integre4 also comes with two color choices of glass blasting anodizing finish.
