Lavardin
Founded in september 1996 after 8 years of research on audio distortions, Lavardin Technologies Company started with the production of the now legendary Model IT. The factory was located in Montoire, just near the charming village and medieval castle of Lavardin wich inspired the founders to name their creation.

In 2000, lavardin Technologies moved to a new factory of 5,500 sq ft near the city of Tours in the Loire Valley.This provided them with superb manufacturing facilities and allowed them to design Lavardin Technologies products to a higher quality standard than ever before.

Their goal is to continue to develop their unique Memory Free Amplification Technology that opens a path for a new generation of high-performance audio devices delivering outstanding sound quality.

The three driving forces behind Lavardin Technologies are : Innovation, Real Value & Good Faith.

Lavardin Technologies Model MAP - Reference mono block power amplifiers
The summit of Lavardin's power amplifier range, the Model MAP system is based on a pair of completely separate units, each one dedicated to one channel. What else can be said... Lavardin have customers who build their new house around the Model MAP and Model C62 preamplifier...

At this level of quality and transparency, any little thing in the setup becomes very important, and the full benefit can only be achieved when a complete set of low memory interconnect and speaker cables is used.

Lavardin Model A80 Reference Power Amplifier
Lavardin Model A80 Reference Power Amplifier
A direct evolution of the Model A80, the Model A80 Reference "gives more than an idea" of what the Model AP150 is capable of. Its exacting circuits and power supply receive a special upgrade in order to realise the fantastic potential of Lavardin's low memory technology.

Its power output remains the same as for The A80, but micro-dynamics and resolution are increased to allow the emotion and intention of the music to reach the listener. Thus also the sound stage is wider, detail is sharper and the overall temper is more mature, even though the sound balance remains respectfully neutral, as with the Model A80. Never has a power amplifier done so much at such an affordable price, for music and the pleasure of the listener.

Lavardin Model A80 Power Amplifier
The Model A80 is the direct no-preamplifier version of the Model IS integrated. It is a full width design with unrivaled Lavardin Technology, build quality and design philosophy, a result of its low memory distortion components. The Model A80 delivers 35 Watts per channel into 8 Ohms but more important than its power rating, its quality is comparable to that of our competitors' much more expensive models and even world reference units. The Model A80 with its exceptional dynamics will definitely bring you closer to the music, and give a purity and clarity that no other amplifier can achieve. The full benefit of low memory distortion technology can only be appreciated when a low memory preamp such as the Model C42 or Model C62 is used to partner the Model A80. Meanwhile, The Model A80 is now used by numerous sound engineers and studios for monitoring classical music recording. It is the best partner for the Spendor S100, Quad ESL, Harbeth, Rogers LS3/5A, Quested, ATC and many other reference monitor speakers.
