Linear Tube Audio Z40 integrated
Our most powerful amp, which can power almost any speaker you throw at it, combined with a Berning-designed preamp and Fern & Roby case. For those who demand the best, but want to keep things simple. The Z40 Integrated amplifier delivers the magic, realism, and 3D soundstage of our patented ZOTL technology, all in one (gorgeous) package.
A single-component solution, the Z40 Integrated amplifier incorporates the acclaimed ZOTL40 Reference power amplifier, a Berning-designed preamplifier, and LTA’s digital control system–beautifully packaged in a Fern & Roby-designed case.
The Z40i generates up to 51 watts per channel. This means the Z40i can easily drive speakers with sensitivity ratings at or above 85db for critical listening. For smaller rooms or non-critical listening, it can drive speakers rated down to 80db. In any configuration, listeners enjoy startling realism, plentiful bass, low noise, plus gorgeous mids and highs.
