As well as complete audio products including power-amps, headphone amps, DACs and cables what makes them particularly innovative is their creation of building blocks such as hybrid Op-Amps. Their philosophy is simple; have components that don’t interfere with the audio signal. If the equipment is designed well and transparent enough then the pace, rhythm, timing, dynamics and tonality will become a natural expression of the music.
