The Newest and most impressive of the Line Magnetic integrated amplifiers, the 508 uses 805 power tubes to produce 48 watts per channel in single-ended triode Class A configuration. What does this mean for sound? It’s hard to understate the effortlessness nature of the sound the 508 produces when running one of our wonderful speaker systems.
Take Sunny Rollins’ sax on “Way out West”, it explodes from the speaker, with all the shimmer and momentum you’d expect to experience at your favorite smokey jazz club. This is not to say that there isn’t loads of refinement, there’s that too, but what strikes me most about the 508 is how the grandeur and scale of any great recording remains wholly intact.
