The dual chassis design is laced with carbon fiber and mirror-finished glass panels decked out with a LED back lit touch sensor, that provide a rigid home for the one of the newest circuits to date.

The Odyssey Circuit, designed in 2015, is a dual phase V drive circuit. With El34 power tubes, it pumps out 120 watts of pure tube magic. Silky smooth and emotional, the days of the smoke filled, low light jazz clubs are making a come back.

Using the Exact Biasing Vu meter, changing over to the 6550/KT88 power tubes is a breeze and the F100 becomes 140 watts of dynamic force to rock any room.

When it’s time to kick it up a notch, the F100 can be bridge with another F100 to double the wattage and experience music at concert level.

These are a balanced design done by Jim Fosgate. They will be offered with three tube types and run from 120 (EL34) watts to 140 watts (6550) to 150 watts (KT150). They can be run in mono to double their power. Pricing below is for the pair, black or silver.

$6,495.00 with EL34 tubes (120 watts per channel)
$6,749.00 with 6550 tubes (140 watts per channel)
$7195.00 with KT150 tubes (150 watts per channel)
