The I/50 is one of the most interesting and exciting new products we’ve seen for some time, promising an ability to faithfully reconstruct a musical experience along with the renowned Audio Research design, build and sound quality. 

A striking design sets the I/50 apart from traditional component design, with the tubes that provide the 50W per channel, on display front and centre. A pair of LexieTubes are used to display information and help give the I/50 its distinctive look. The I/50 is designed to be easy to use, and has three controls on its top panel – Power, Input, and Volume. A full-function metal remote control provides further functionality and operation.
