ZESTO AUDIO

Lehmann ​uses top grade components without exception, which we buy from selected manufacturers. Thus our Linear SE is equipped off the shelf with capacitors from Mundorf in the power supply and also in the signal path, an ahp fuse and Mogami cables. Vibration-absorbing SSC feet are another standard feature ot the Linear SE. This reference class headphone amplifier also copes with the highest of aesthetic demands. The housing variants developed by product designer Guido Gutenstein range from a noble silk flat aluminium finish to high-gloss piano lacquer to high-quality real wood veneers. Match different housing and faceplate versions with freely selectable LED colours and black or silver SSC feet, as you desire. That way the Linear SE will become your very personal gem to assort well with your taste and/or existing devices. READ MORE....

​In the mid 1980s, long before anyone had heard of 'lifestyle' design, the first Primare range of hi-fi components was launched. The now celebrated 900 Series and 200 series products symbolised a radical shift in the way music systems were perceived: they proved that great sounding hi-fi could also be rewarding to look at and easy to use. Overnight the rules had changed: Primare made hi-fi for living as well as for listening!

​Then an association with Xena Audio of Sweden, famous for its Copland and QLN brands, integrated the talents of Primare’s Bent Nielsen and Xena’s Lars Pedersen. Pedersen’s production experience and Nielsen’s unrivalled comprehension of the brand’s ethos combined to create a new commercial momentum for Primare, which would optimise its potential to enhance every living space with extraordinary looks and breathtaking sound.

​The Conductor Virtuoso is a USB DAC, Headphone Amp and Preamplifier. Most enthusiasts use its DAC and amplifier to drive their prized headphones with one beautifully-built, modestly-priced component. With over 4 watts of power on tap the Conductor Virtuoso will drive any headphone with ease. The Conductor Virtuoso’s headphone amp section is essentially the Soloist which reviewers have raved about. Or use the Conductor Virtuoso’s preamp functions to make it the center of a headphone and speaker-based desktop system with headphone option. You can choose from two interchangeable DAC boards with different sonic characteristics and the modular design makes for no-fuss upgrades. As always, Burson eschews densely-packed opamps and designs all discrete circuitry for superior tonality, clarity and a lower noise floor. READ MORE....

ADL

​Aesthetix amplifiers are capable of driving virtually any high quality speaker. An innovative hybrid design incorporates a bipolar output stage, bipolar driver stage, and vacuum tube input gain stage. They stand alone as the only hybrid amplifiers with zero feedback, essential for maintaining harmonic integrity, air, space and coherence. The Atlas provides your choice of full range or high-pass inputs. This unique built-in filter is ideal for speakers featuring powered woofers or for audio and home cinema systems using outboard powered sub-woofers. Saturn Series design themes are evidenced in the specialized all-aluminum chassis construction and elaborate power supply design.

The Altas stereo amplifirers are available in Standard, Signature and Eclipse versions. The Mono blocks are available in Signature and Eclipse versions. READ MORE....

​Audia Flight was founded by Massimiliano Marzi and Andrea Nardini in 1996 with extensive experience and backgrounds in the professional electronics industry. Located in the Italian town of Civitavecchia, near the Mediterranean and just over 40 miles from Rome, Audia Flight has been building some of the finest amplifiers and audio components to be found anywhere in the world for nearly 20 years. Audia Flight not only incorporates an original approach toward modern amplifier circuit design, but does so with Italian style.

Audia Flight’s core circuit design objective was, simply stated to: ensure that no component of an audio chain will alter the audio signal, and maintain appropriate signal speed so as to not introduce low transient instability. Shortly after the company’s start, Audia Flight released it’s new circuit design, thereby retiring the need for traditional voltage feedback circuitry in their amplifier applications. The new circuit utilizes current feedback to generate ‘high speed response” capable of accommodating reactive speaker impedances simultaneously. READ MORE....  

PRIMARE

PrimaLuna has pioneered numerous technologies to redefine tube amplification. From increased reliability and tube life all the way to our unique, signature sound. PrimaLuna does this by using a true and sophisticated Adaptive AutoBias system while running tubes at the minimum dissipation (power) and giving more slam and bandwidth through superior output transformer design.

PrimaLuna employs Point to Point Wiring on all products. The entire signal path, including resistors and capacitors, is painstakingly hand wired with heavy-gauge cable by craftsman.

​The MANLEY brand has been around since the late 1980's. Manley's first commercially available products were upper echelon high-fidelity vacuum tube amplifiers and preamplifiers constructed at the old Vacuum Tube Logic of America factory.


​Manley Laboratories, Inc. in recent years has expanded and thrived under EveAnna Manley's leadership. Our 11,000 sq. ft. building houses our own machine shop, printed circuit board manufacture, audio transformer winding, engraving, and silk-screening facilities. All custom design, R&D, assembly, testing, and quality control processes are performed with precision and pride at the Manley factory, located just 35 miles east of Los Angeles. All MANLEY products are built in Chino California. READ MORE....

​Triode Corporation of Japan or Tri for short was founded by Mr. Junichi Yamazaki in 1996. Being a music lover and audio hobbyist, Yamazaki san changed track from railway engineer to full-time audio designer with his inaugural VP-300BD. That paralleled single-ended integrated amp garnered prestigious awards from Japanese audio circles one short year later. Success bred success and model after model. Yamazaki san gradually established himself as one of the leading tube amp gurus in the land of the rising sun. READ MORE....

Goerge Counnas founder of Zesto Audio started doing research on past tube designs going back to the original RCA circuits of the 1930’s. Those guys got a lot of things right, even though their tools were slide rules and trial and error. Their “classic” designs were my starting point. But I had the advantage of CAD software to simulate electronic circuits. Ah yes, the old and the new. But even with the engineering skill, history, technologies, in the end it’s designed by how it sounds, by ear. The resisters are very quiet, the capacitors are transparent, and the transformers have minimal distortion. To make sure its visual aesthetics lived up to its sound, I had an industrial designer (Musky Mistry) and an artist (Carolyn Counnas) collaborate to create an elegant enclosure that’s built like a tank. In the end, however, it is about what you hear. Hearing is believing. READ MORE...
