    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    If I should elaborate a bit more on the topic, I've written before in this thread about my early experiences with the monos where I tried to use XLR connections, both directly from my true balanced tube based DAC, and from my passive transformer based preamp. The latter was not possible at all, it just gave a high static buzz. When connected directly to the DAC it worked, but I had lot's of noise in the speakers, which probably came from my DAC, but it was not acceptable. Today I'm running the Jobs unbalanced from my preamp with RCA cables, it's dead quiet, and sounds amazing...

    I think this experience is probably not normal, but I also read in the 6moons review about the XLR connections being on the Jobs merely of convenience. All in all, I would say unbalanced RCA connections seems to work best in my experience... and hopefully it doesn't scare you away from the Jobs as I personally think there's so many other parameters affecting things that I would prioritize before going balanced again.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    Srajan Ebaen did not mince words about the balanced connectors on the 250s in his review

    we do know why the 250 can hum when connected XLR. With its single-ended input stage, its XLR is a mere convenience feature. It's not a true balanced input. What's more, it includes a protective resistor. When fed from a true balanced circuit like my new COS Engineering D1 DAC/pre, this resistor can cause hum whilst RCA is dead quiet. Faux balanced connections ...

    I’ve used both inputs and for me, both have been dead quiet. It usually depends on my choice of preamp.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    I just put all my Ayre gear up for sale. I am very interested in the JOB Monos. I'm running Sonus Faber Il Cremonese and the VX-5 Twenty sounded good, but I know the speakers could use more power. Any good options for a preamp? I liked the KX-5 Twenty, but If I could get something that sounds as good for less I could treat my wife to a vacation for putting up with my audio addiction

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    As the Job mono's have an input sensitivity of only .75 volts the preamp will need to be low gain like your Ayre. Likely candidates would be to me Linear Tube Audio, Wyred 4 Sound STP-SE Stage 2, Backert Labs Rhumba or maybe even the Don Sachs Model 2 which has adjustable gain. When I was using the Job stereo amp I had to buy a used STP-SE to work with it as all of my tube preamps had way to much gain which is usually the norm rather than the exception. How much savings any of these will get you over the sale of your used Ayre is yet to be seen.

    Wow that's a drastic move. Assuming you get the Job Monos and MicroZotl, what would your replacement DAC be for the QX-5 Twenty?

    Good question. The Mytek Manhattan II is something I'm currently looking into.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    The Ayre KX5-20 would be great but my choice would be the Micro ZOTL MZ2 with a sweet 12AU7 to lower the gain a bit. It's still only single ended but it's superb and will add some tone and 3D to the mix. The Job 250 monos are awesome, adding the MZ2 will be a great combination.

    I'm not sure that you will gain much power, if any, over the Ayre combo.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    No, unfortunately not. I have not heard any of the First Watt gear from Nelson.

    I was always a little afraid of the power being a little too low for most of my speakers.

    I know we have some members here who either own them or have owned them.

    You are missing out on something very very special Joe. These amps are so truthful and real sounding that one would question the existence of other amps around. If you biamp with these amps it will never seem out of breath. As a single stereo amp it may show its limitation but that also if you drive very hard. But the kind of realism and truth that comes across makes one forget all about tubes, ss, set, push-pull etc.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    And yea, it doesn't sound like any of the typical pass labs products. Those pass labs XA series amps sounds like any other amp. It is the first watt which is amazing

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    I would suspect it's in the 50k range similar to the 225, but if it is important I would e-mail them.

    THE JOB 250

    A Professional Ultra-High Speed Mono Amplifier

    The latest addition to the JOB amplifiers family is the mono version of the family.
    The JOB 250 is a Mono block of 250W in a reasonably small chassis, only slightly higher than the JOB 225.
    Totally protected, easy to use, perfectly silent, it is THE amplifier for an audiophile who is conscious of his budget but demanding the absolute best of the world in sonic quality and having speakers very demanding in power.
    With its extraordinary dynamic capability and its unconditional stability, it can drive anything.
    More, with the JOB proprietary "Ultra-Control" of the drivers, any speaker even a large one will sound better when used with the JOB 250.
    With extremely low distortion, especially IM distortion, literally zero group delay distortion, ultra-wide MegaHerz bandwidth and DC coupling, extreme silence and cool operation, it can be played at high level with the same impression of ease than at low levels.
    Thanks to the JOB Electronics large scale of operation on power amplifiers, the JOB 250 is also offered at a realistic price, where high-end audio manufacturers would charge $6'000 to $15'000 if the same amplifier were sold through the traditional channels.

    Well what i am hoping for is to make a new version of 225 which can be bridged easily by a switch. That makes the product line simpler and thus good for job too.

    Hi Guys, first post here . I too contacted Job today very coincidently about the absence of the 250 mono's. Now I see why. A friend highly recommended the Job 225 as well. I never heard of Job before,but based on the reviews, seems like an awfully good amps for the money.
    (Also coincidently, I have a LTA MZ2 as a pre too , Tidal Piano speakers and a Holo Audio Spring L3 dac right now. I'll just follow along now lol

    The Job 250 monos are better amps, can drive more speakers and sound amazing. I sure hope there’s an update coming.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    Yes Joe, they should be.
    I have a nuforce STA200 which is basically based on 225 - very vibrant sound, full of drive, very clean but never harsh or edgy or lean
    However I cannot say it's a mellow and warm one, so I guess paring is still important.

    Here is their response, doesn't look good from the sound of the email for the mono's to return. Bummer:

    Dear Sir,


    yes we just stopped producing it at the end of 2017 and we are delivering the last orders currently.


    Thanks.

    Bad news.

    The 225 will NOT be made bridgable and the 250 is definitely discountinued due to poor demand.
    The last of the 250s are sold and will be shipped this week.

    A classic gone forever!

    Wow ... That really sucks!

    I was pondering on a plan for a couple of 250s down the road.
    Gone too soon. Definitely one of those rare audio unicorns.

    Anyone knows how the Job 250's (or Job line overall) would compare to Goldmund Telos 280?

    Maybe I missed it, but did anyone ever compare the Jobs to the Benchmark AHB2's?

    I was considering the Jobs, but went with a Benchmark because I wanted a neutral amp with balanced inputs. But I always wondered how the two compared? Based on reports, they would seem to sound similar.

    Re: Job 250 monos amps: absolutely wonderful ...

    Its been 3 years since the last post, but I also would be curious to read impressions of anyone who s done such a comparo: Job 250 mono vs Telos 280, or Telos 350 & 360 monos as they all of these use the same variation of a Telos circuit . Hope to get a reply

    I wonder if folks still own and are enjoying their JOb 250 monos, or found something "better"?

    I still have, use and love my Job 250 monos. I still use my Job integrated. Both are wonderfully open, lots of 3D, great vocals, quiet, air/space around voices and instruments and extremely articulate.

    I’ve never compared to Goldmund in the same system but have heard Goldmund. I’d love to go up the ladder to Goldmund but jeez, they are expensive. My Job integrated was $1700. The Goldmund version is $10K. Sure I’d love new Goldmund integrated (I forgot the model) but it’s $30K retail.

    I love the Goldmund sound but wish my pockets were deeper.
