    JDF/JMF amplifiers

    Hi folks, does any of you know the JDF/JMF power amplifiers? Are the current JMF amplifiers similar in sound as the older JDF? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Peter, thx for the info link. Yeah, those are the JDF amps. But I need some impressions from someone who has compared those two related brands.

    I heard both products : JDF and JMF, but on different systems. So , it's quiet difficult to have a good idea. The latest products seems to have a high end construction. Logically, they are updates amplifier. There is no reason why they outperform JDF amplifier.

    Here is one of my JDF Audio HQS2400 upm. They sound neutral. You should organize a session in JMF-Audio auditorium. Very instructive and impressive. The products are also distribute by ACOUSTIQUE SYSTEME located in north east of France.
    Regards Stephane

    Here is the last JMF-Audio amplifier line available with wallnut or alu faceplate. The HQS6001c is a stereo amp and the rest of the product are pure monos units (HQS1000, HSQ7001 and the summit HQS9001).

    JDF-AUDIO vs JMF-AUDIO

    That's now three months I can listen and compare the JMF and JDF amps. For lot of people, the new HQS6002(D) replace the famous JDF-AUDIO HQS2400. It's true and not.

    The sound family is here : smooth, details and effortless

    But, the new line seems more accurate, and more precise in 3D image and give us some more space around the musiciens. I believe the power is something like 50w more important.

    I am keeping the JDF-Audio for my DIY application. And today, the JMF-Audio is powering my studio monitors.

    Last point, the wallnut faceplate is beautiful, and even more compare to the "horrible" professionnal amplifier design of the nineties !!!
