THE SHOW Newport 2016 Reviews

By |September 16th, 2016|

I had some time to collect a few of the reviews we received from THE SHOW Newport:

Ampsandsound may be missing a few spaces in its name, but a visit to its room at T.H.E. Show in Newport revealed the company wasn’t lacking much else. Indeed, the business founded by medical social worker Justin Weber seems to be making strides in establishing a strong line of components. Weber says Ampsandsound’s goals is to offer hand-built, carefully designed and reliable products offering the highest parts quality at lower prices than a buyer […]

audio-head visits ampsandsound at T.HE Show Newport 2016

By |June 8th, 2016|

I first ran into ampsandsound at the Newport show down in the marketplace at the MrSpeakers table. I had heard rumors and seen some initial PR releases about the southern California company but had little experience with them firsthand. Turns out they have quite the selection of tube-based amplifier that straddle both loudspeaker and headphone applications.

CanLanta… ampsandsound goes on the road

By |May 26th, 2016|

Tyll Herstens did a great job last weekend in Atlanta spending time with all of the vendors and speaking with the attendees and his much anticipated show report just dropped on InnerFidelity.

We had a wonderful event and can’t thank John Morrison, and Joe Saxon enough for the welcome we received. A class group of people in every respect.
And a tidbit for foodies…Atlanta has decent deli suddenly. Matzo ball soup to die for.

I had been looking for a replacement for my Oppo HA-1 for quite a while. I had recently upgraded my DAC to a Schiit Gungnir Multibit and was on the hunt for what I thought would be a balanced amp; probably a Schiit Mjolnir 2 or something similar. I wanted to be able to tune my sound with tubes and had grown slightly bored with the down-the-line neutral take […]
