Jolida JD100S

Can't find much info on this unit other than it uses four tubes instead of the two used in the JD100. Just curious if it would be worthwhile to replace my JD100 with this "S" model.


I bought mine in 2005 if memory serves. I really enjoy the sound from the JD100 which is why the JD100S piqued my interest. The JD100S uses a pair of 12AX7 and another pair of 12AU7 tubes. I think it was distributed by the Jolida Chinese Shenda factory and not by Jolida Maryland.
My system is a Jolida JD9 phono pre and a Jolida Fusion preamp both being heavily modded. The JD100 is stock except for some internal dampening and nos tubes. Klipsch modded KLF-20 speakers, Fosgate Signature headphone amp, Denen AH-D9200 headphones. VPI turntable.
I considered going with a new/newish transport and DAC but there are so many DACs out there I don’t know where to start. I haven’t really kept up with all the new tech for the last several years.

If I did not buy the Raysonic tube cdp , I will buy the Jolida JD100S. I’ve heard the JD100 it’s superb.Its available at Saturday audio Exchange here in Chicago.

I bought a used BAT VK-D5SE at a very decent price. It's been well taken care of and came with a spare new Philips cd drive. Seller gave me a deal I couldn't pass up. If I don't like it I can always resell it.
The JD100S at Saturday Audio Exchange has no remote and remotes for the JD100 series are unobtanium. I made a fair offer for it but they wouldn't budge. I'm not paying their price for that unit with no remote.

Slovell the most they will discount is $100 , I wonder if Jolida or black ice can sell a remote for this unit.You did the right thing.

Talked to Mike at Jolida, Maryland and Walt at Underwood HiFi with no luck. Mike said they can't even really do a complete service the JD100 as they have no parts  left and forget about a remote.. Walt advised me to call Mike so there you go. lol  I think you can still find a new drive for it on EBay so I probably should pick one up for a spare.
I'm probably going to keep my JD100 and just use it sparingly, it's a really nice sounding player.
Can't wait to hear the BAT. I wanted to get one with the SuperPak upgrade but it was a lot more money and way out of my budget. Getting a new spare drive with it is definitely a plus.
