I/50 Integrated Amplifier

The I/50 Integrated Amplifier is the first product in an all-new series from Audio Research.

Functionally simple, visually engaging, and musically sublime – the I/50 takes music listening to a whole new experience.

Hand-crafted in Minnesota, the I/50 is built with the same attention to detail as all other Audio Research products – each one even gets its own listening test with sonic designer, Warren Gehl.

Available in six colours, the I/50 features Cerakote finishes for a beautiful and long-lasting look.

The modular design allows for the installation of two audio modules – a Phono Stage, and a D/A Converter (to come in 2022).

The high current, 50 watt per channel amplifier is capable of driving a wide variety of speakers.

A headphone jack allows for personal listening time.

The I/50 is designed to be easy to use, and has three controls on its top panel – Power, Input, and Volume.

Two LexieTubes® provide display information for input selection and volume.

Two matched pairs of 6550WE vacuum tubes, along with three 6922 tubes, stand in front of the perforated transformer cover.

Three single-ended inputs and one XLR input provide connectivity for most systems, along with 4- and 8- Ohm speaker taps to accommodate your speaker of choice.

One input can be assigned for pass-through function.

A full-function metal remote control provides further functionality and operation.

An optional tube cage will be available.

As with all Audio Research products, the I/50 is built entirely in their Minnesota facility by a team of skilled technicians and expert craftspeople.

The I/50 is the first product completely finished in-house.

The Audio Research finishing lab encompasses a purpose-built painting facility and laser imaging and marking machines to produce a luxurious finish normally found only on much
more expensive products.

The Cerakote finish is not only beautiful, but designed to be enduring and easy to maintain
