We at Lehmannaudio love challenges. It’s our special ambition to make something really excellent still better in a clear and sustainable manner. Now we proudly present our Decade Jubilee phono amplifier which catches up impressively with our top of the range model Silver Cube.

Even for the most demanding pleasure listeners the Decade Jubilee raises playing back of records to a new level. To this end it has got the entire passive RIAA network from its big brother Silver Cube – for an infatuating music reproduction. Owing to the available customising options, even the most exotic pickups will find their perfect game partner in the Decade Jubilee.

Ease and playfulness that will get under your skin

Thanks to its powerful discrete output stage the Decade Jubilee can show off with all its sonic assets even when using long cables. The reproduction is clear down to the finest details and characterised by an effortless ease.

And it’s also easy to operate: all important functions can be switched conveniently via toggles on the front panel of the audio section. Inside the device the signals reach their destination in dual mono via one relay per channel. This clearly improves the crosstalk behaviour and helps to keep the signal paths short. Hence you will enjoy your music in an even more 3D-like and immediate way – as if you were at a live concert!

With the PWX II LC power supply the audio section has an adequate support by its side. Due to the significantly increased use of copper and an elaborate capacitor upgrade, the revised power pack is now an appropriately sovereign energy source. This enables the Decade Jubilee to handle transients even faster. Both the audio section and the power supply rest on the 3S feet that were specially refined by Lehmannaudio and bring total calmness into the sound image.

No matter what kind of music you love – the Decade Jubilee will enchant you with its clarity and truly touch you!

Reviews

"Budget priced phono pres do not nearly present such an expressiveness – not even the original Decade. The Jubilee edition proves impressively what sonic improvements can be achieved by the clever use of finest parts and constructive changes, even in a time-honoured component like the Decade – magnificent."

"This machine is the weapon of choice for those wishing to distil the tonal essence of a pickup. With the Ortofon Windfeld Ti the Cologne duo enters into a very blissful marriage. Even after long weeks of continuous service, I simply cannot spot any preferences for certain spectral ranges in this combination. Yet indeed such for a vibrant and punchy style of play … This is analogue delight at the highest level, but if you ask me how Lehmann’s Jubilee sounds after all, I’m a little stuck for the answer: it does not sound – it passes the music through. What more can anyone ask for?"

"Normally we STEREO editors deliberately do not listen to our personal favourite music when working on a review article. Among other things to not let the joy of music be taken away from us by constantly repeating the same tracks. But this spree to records, which have been regarded as the private holy grail for decades, was complex and entertaining, tracing the different recording situations authentically and revealing with how much zest the band was standing together in the studio or on the stage."
