Well made audio transformers can provide perfect coupling in a hi fi system. Free from the "mechanical" sound of solid state and the deficiencies of output capacitors, they can make reproduction more vibrant and focused.
The heart of the LA5tx are two very special line level output transformers, developed "in house" at Icon Audio over several years to give what they think is the best sound balance.
A simple low gain pre-amplifier that buffers the input and provides the transformer with optimum drive to achieve the full potential from our unique output transformers.
