We are proud of the fact that every component used in our vacuum tube production is manufactured in-house. This enables us to have complete quality control of every part of the manufacturing process.
All materials used in tube and capacitor production undergo a meticulous cleaning process such as ultrasonic cleaning, annealing in protective atmosphere and reactive rinsing. The assembly process is carried out by a combination of meticulous manual operations and state-of-the-art production procesess.
All vacuum tubes and capacitors go through an extended burn-in period to ensure superior stability. A rigorous final test for tubes and capacitors verifies every important parameter. In particular, the parameters for flawless tube functioning include insulation characteristics, vacuum level, cathode emission efficiency, filament voltage, plate currents, and microphonics. The quality control process includes several thousand hours of reliability testing on samples of tubes and capacitors.
By using our tubes and capacitors in our own line of audio amplifiers, we continually verify their quality and preformance in the practical applications.
