Reduced to sell fast: $1250 for the pair (MRSP $3700 + Tx). A true bargain for the asking price.
Like new. Very low hours, they are part of my office sound system which I unfortunately don't listen to anymore.
High-end combo, built like tanks: Jungson Hedo WG 80 integrated amp + CD player in truly MINT condition.
Solid state with very nice and warm tubish sound without harshness and a kind of CLASSÉ look... Excellent build quality which is only found in very high-end audio gear.
High quality metal remote controls.
Bought brand new from Grant Fidelity (Alberta) in 2013. Jungson is a Chinese premier audio manufacturer which has been private manufacturing for many top western brands. Official Radio-China studios are equipped with their products. They've learned how to make high end electronics.
The CD player COMES with a extra brand new SPARE TRANSPORT (direct replacement part) just in case because transports are often the only part which will fail sooner or later in a CD player. I've purchased it from Grant Fidelity at the same time I ordered the CD player.
Very versatile input/output connections - you can easily integrate it into your home theatre system to get much better performance for the front main speakers. By using it as standalone 2-channel amp, it will also bring great performance for music listening. Convenient line out allows to hook a subwoofer.
About Hedo (Duro) Series:
This is Jungson Audio's latest addition to their line of products to not only produce great sound, but also taking care of your wallet in a very friendly way.
Hedo is a short form of Jungson Audio's Chinese name - Heng Dong Audio.
The WG-80 integrated amplifier is of Jungson's well known Class AB design for output and class A power supply circuitry. Built with premium parts selected from Japanese and Danish brands including Sanken, Toshiba and Jantzen etc.. Transformers are custom made by Jungson handwound.
Who is Jungson Audio? Posted on April 14, 2011 by admin: http://grantfidelity.com/factories/?p=73 Jungson Audio (on many websites, it is referred as JungSon) is one of China’s premier Hi-Fi manufacturers. The word ‘Jung-Son’ is from the Chinese pronunciation of the company’s name – Zhong Shen, meaning ‘Spirit of Chinese Ancient Bell‘. Bells were used as musical instrument in China since 3500 years ago for ceremony and important events. Jungson Audio is China’s premier high fidelity audio manufacturer and is best known for its Class A design.
Jungson Audio was started by two audiophiles in 1993 in a small town in southern China, Taishan, where 90% of the families there have ties with North America through their ancestors who went to North America to build the rail roads starting from 1860s. The two founders, one were then teaching electronics at a college, the other one was his student, started the business out of their passion to audio and music. Their start-up stage is like many stories we heard in the western world – self financing, limited space and no brand recognition. They took their first product – 70 lbs solid state amplifier on the train and went to Guangzhou (which is China’s Hi-Fi capital) to look for interested customers. Just while they were exhausted by lugging such a heavy amp without a vehicle (in 1990s, majority of China is still on two wheels – bicycle) from shop to shop but no one paid attention to them, and they were about to return home, a foresighted vendor welcomed them into the shop for a demonstration. Not to mention that the store owner is so impressed by the product and decided to carry the product. From then on, Jungson started to prosper. The real take-off of Jungson happened when China’s national radio station took on one of their amps for studio monitoring in the 90s. Since then, Jungson has been continuously bringing out excellent products, from mighty power 200W monoblocks to smaller integrated amps.
Jungson Audio is also one of the handful manfuacturers in the world who makes full line of audio components, from wall out to the ears. Today, as we speak, Jungson is building their now premise in Taishan with 6 buildings on 15 acres of land. The down-to-earth owners told me: “Many audio companies choose to located in major cities but we decide to stay in Taishan. We like where we started and we would like to stay focused on making great audio, rather than be enticed by money and greed.” I have personally visited Jungson twice in the past two years – they have a great team of designers, all young in their 20s and 30s, except the owners are in their 40s, plus a dedicated production team who are mostly from Taishan.
Jungson Audio’s amplifier products include two series – one is the Classic series with blue LED meter at front and black chassis; the other series is called ‘Hedo’ – which has curvy front but mostly in silver color.
