60/70wpc remote tube integrated amplifier
$2299.00 with EL34 tubes (60 watt/ch) Sale $1699.00
$2399.00 with 6550 tubes (70 watts/ch) Sale $1799.00
The 6802 is a remote controlled tube integrated amp that does 140 watts/ch of music power and is rated as either 60 or 70 watts continuous depending on tube choice. It has a switch to go from EL34's to 6550/KT88's. These amps come with ESA clarity caps, Hexfred diodes, and Vishay resistors. The 6802 can run with 6550 tubes, EL34 tubes, KT88, KT120, or KT150 tubes..Jolida kept all the well liked sound characteristics of the older 801 model and improved the unit with an easy interchange of tubes, lower noise, increased clarity and a smooth presentation with midrange weight and enhanced 3 dimensionality.

Soundstage Expander & Tube buffer
The Foz SS-X is a small box that does 3 things. They are:
1) Tube buffer
2) Bass Control
3) Soundtsge Expander
"I have rarely had so much fun reviewing anything audio. I was like a kid in a candy store. Experimenting with three dimensional sound using the bass control and adjusting the stage between my speakers. Switching between different sources, bad recordings and wonderful recordings. All the time anticipating what I would hear if I added a little more warmth, a bit more bass or widened the stage of a live performance. My years long battle with the uneven acoustics of my small listening space has ended. The futile addition of sound shaping things on my walls, some reflective and some absorptive, black Argent Helmholtz pipes. Sticky backed foil things on speakers even a block of clear acrylic on top of my system to focus sound. If you can relate to the fight I fought and the money I wasted then you owe it to yourself to give the $400 Dollar SSX a try. I’m keeping it."

Electronic crosstalk and axial tilt corrector
See the youtube video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kr_x26E5eE
The XT-R represents a distinctive electronic approach to solving crosstalk inherent in many turntable cartridges and acoustic problems due to axial tilt. The FOZ XT-R was designed by Jim Fosgate. Jim (Foz) Fosgate’s life long career in audio design represents decades of work on every possible circuit approach to car stereo, surround processors, tube amplifiers, preamplifiers, phono preamplifiers and other accessories. This wide array of designs have all been explored in depth, built, and auditioned by Foz. In coupling Foz’s XT-R design with Jolida’s decades of manufacturing experience; the result is a unit which can provide our customers with a distinct improvement in turntable sound reproduction at an affordable price. Foz has designed an elegant electronic circuit to effectively reduce crosstalk and axial tilt. The XT-R represents a breakthrough since axial tilt and crosstalk is compensated for electronically and does not use the traditional approach of physical adjustment to mitigate the problems. The XTR incorporates signal cancellation to reduce inter channel crosstalk. This is the same technique that is used in high separation surround processors. The XTR corrects for a misaligned stylus or cantilever, misaligned generator, misaligned tone arm azimuth (axial tilt). It also reduces crosstalk from cross coupling of the generator coils or tone arm wiring. This works with moving magnet, moving iron, and moving coil cartridges. The XT-R will compensate for up to 7 degrees of axial tilt and can improve crosstalk to a maximum of 40dB. The result will be an improvement in stereo imaging.
