LYRIC Ti 200 – Integrated amplifier

The integrated amplifier LYRIC Ti 200 represents the latest developments of our fine tube electronics manufactory: A parallel single ended Class A amplifier with optional 2 x EL34, 2 x KT 88, 2 x KT 120, or 2 x KT 150 per channel and a maximum output power of 2 x 40W RMS.

The advanced channel-separated power supply has been designed with superfast rectifier diodes, a filter chain consisting of capacitors and strong inductor coils. As a result, the Lyric Ti 200 achieves high stability and output power, as well as an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

The components of the input and driver stages are of highly selected quality. In addition, a maximally complex ground and signal routing has been chosen, in which opposing currents in the supply voltage as well as the mixing of the sensitive signal currents are prevented. This “Zero Cross Current Control“, developed by our senior engineer Stefan Noll, can be found exclusively in our new LYRIC amplifiers.

A 47-step attenuator is used as a volume control. The attenuator is characterized by highest precision and is constructed with tightly selected metal lm resistors. This absolute high-end volume controller offers a sound reproduction with maximum resolution, delicate timbre, and stunning spatial depth. Thanks to a step motor the volume can also be remote-controlled.

The input signal is fed into a low-noise 12AX7, which guarantees high dynamics and a wide frequency response. As a driver tube, we chose a 6V6 in triode mode. This tube is significantly more powerful compared with ordinary driver tubes and has an exceptionally low output impedance. Apart from this, the 6V6 is characterized by excellent sound quality. The Lyric Ti 200 delivers contoured bass, wonderful midrange, and fine, airy treble. The output transformers have been specially developed so that impedance-critical speakers will be driven with ease. As usual, the negative feedback and thus also the attenuation factor can be optimally adjusted via a 6-way switch to get a perfect match with the speakers used.
