I am selling my Clones Audio 25iR gainclone integrated stereo amplifier.
It has a nice woody, fruity sound signature – does not sound like a typical class “D” amplifier.
I’m selling this because I upgraded to a 300B tube amp.
It includes the remote control, power cord, and user guide.
It works but it is finicky. As the user guide says, this amplifier is designed to be left on all the time. If the amplifier is turned off, as the user guide says, be sure to turn on your source component before switching on the 25iR.
If the amp is turned off or you lose AC power from a power failure, after turning the amp back on, sometimes the sound will not come out the amplifier until the amp is turned off and on a few times.
Because of the above issue, I sent it to Clones Audio a year ago and they serviced it and updated the firmware. It is much improved but it is still finicky about being turned off.
The only cosmetic flaw I see is a very small nick on the edge of the volume control (you can see it in the first photo).
Rated 4 out of 10 because of the nick on the volume control and because of the finicky nature of the amp when turned off.
3 unbalanced RCA stereo inputs.
2 sets of high-quality 5-way binding posts.
25 Watts at 8 ohms.
Output power: 25W+25W (8ohms)
Input impedance: 10k ( unbalanced only, 3 inputs )
The speaker binding posts are close together so I would not recommend speaker cables with spades – use banana plugs or bare wire.
Retail price = $1295
