    I have an opportunity to buy a LSA Statement hybrid integrated amp. I’m not asking anything about price. Considering this was $9K to $11K new, it’s likely a screaming deal. It has had some factory upgrades and high quality tubes. I would like to know if anyone has experience with LSA gear and your impressions? I’m a little cautious when it comes to “boutique” gear. Thank you, any information would be greatly appreciated!

    The one my LSA dealer friend had on audition was a nice amplifier I listened to many times, I liked it very well.

    Thanks Kent, I am seriously considering it. Fortunately, the seller is local and a friend of mine so I will get to audition it in my system before I commit.

    I did audition the LSA. Unfortunately it has noisy EH tubes which caused some audible “blow.” I was not overly impressed with the sound, especially the bass response. Better tubes may help but not enough to make me a buyer.
