Orchestra Black
$5,795

The Orchestra Black is a classic 40 watt EL34 push-pull tube integrated amplifier. It features point-to-point wiring, high quality selected components and Jadis’ own in-house hand-wound custom transformers. It is hand-built in France and comes with remote control included.

The Orchestra Black was specially made for the North American market to Bluebird’s specifications. It is a derivative of the popular Orchestra Reference but it includes a tube upgrade from EL34 to the more robust 6CA7 industrial tubes and some proprietary internal tweaks. These changes produce a noticeable sonic improvement. The gold faceplates and transformer covers were replaced with black to give a more modern industrial look and reduce the cost.
As a result of the above effort, the Orchestra Black sounds better and costs less than its predecessor. At $4,495, with remote included, the Orchestra Black delivers outstanding sonic performance and value for money.
