We dedicate ourselves to the search for absolute sound in our own type of amplification that we have come to call “AD class” with our own EPAM amplification modules, a mixture of classic and new technologies because discovery lies in the pairing.
In the year 2008 we asked ourselves a question:
Can we create a new class of power amplification that is faithful in reproduction? What has a lot of power? Which is more electrically efficient? No quality loss? What does not generate high temperature? Could we create an ecological brand within electronics? Committed to the environment? Deliver real audio value in our creations? Go further and go beyond the established limits of electronics? and many, many more questions…
And the answer was: Yes, Extraudio™ products.
Extraudio products are both unique and exclusive, handmade and durable, and beautiful works of art for audiophiles.
The amplifiers combine vacuum tubes with solid-state transistors since we do not defend any particular technology, but prefer an alchemical mixture of both, to achieve our goal: very high fidelity in reproduction and completely flat frequency response up to 1Ghz.
Our product line consists of preamps, power amps, integrated amps, phono preamps, DACs, accessories, and three ranges of artisan cables. And we are constantly working on research to create even more efficient and intelligent products in the future.
We really like the analog sound, as well as the sound of live music; we are obsessed with quality and attention to detail in our products; we care about beauty and purity in the reproduction of music; and, above all, we do not make the same mistake as other manufacturers whose products are created from an aesthetic, scientific, and technological approach and with an eye toward economic considerations and cost reduction, eliminating from the equation what is truly important “music”. and the audiophile or music lover end user”.
Design, research and development, ease of functionality, and carefully crafted, handcrafted products all combine to enable us to create unique and exclusive high-end audio products that preserve music, which, in the end, is what it is. that our hobby is the faithful reproduction of music.
Extraudio was born not only as a logical result of our devotion to music and our professional experience as specialists in the high-end audio sector but also as the result of more than ten years of research and development dedicated to achieving a product that has not yet been had appeared on the market.
Our multidisciplinary team of people, almost 16 people have participated in the design team, made up of engineers, programmers, musicians, designers, and audiophiles, who have worked side by side to create the Extraudio experience, which goes far beyond the limits established in high-end audio.
We have been working with thermionic valves since the 1980s.
We have repaired, distributed, and imported high-end audio products; we have broadcast great musical events; We have created professional studios for radio, TV, video, and broadcast sound. Likewise, we have managed to revive the memory of those musical notes, sounds, sensations, instruments, and voices buried in our auditory memory, managing to remember them again with Extraudio products.
This is what has driven us to create the philosophy that underlies all the products of our brand, “Extraudio, authentic sound, honest and sincere”.
We have created products that are beautifully minimalist, highly efficient, and uncompromisingly designed without any cost cutting on electronics and made in short runs, to pay attention to every detail and avoid planned obsolescence.
We make sure that not a single nuance or detail of the musical compositions is lost and the listener can perceive all the reality and all the sensations, subtleties, and micro details of the recorded music, as well as the correct timbre of all the instruments. The amplification products smoothly reproduce large orchestral masses without lack of energy and the amplification of all frequencies is flat amplification.
“Extraudio, what is in the original recording, is what you hear”
The external design was inspired by the 10 industrial design concepts of Mr. Dieter Rams from Germany.
So it should be noted that our design is very much in the vein of Mr. Rams “less, but better executed”.
