Forty years of devotion to tubes, because they sound right.
Several decades ago, when most audio companies were abandoning vacuum tubes for solid state, Conrad-Johnson kept the faith.Their reasoning was simple--solid state just didn't sound as good. That confidence, passion, and commitment has endured over four decades, with the current owner confessing an obsession with quality and “serious lust for vacuum-tube technology.” Music played through Conrad-Johnson gear is warm and smooth, never muddled or lifeless, always enjoyable. Moreover, their amplifiers produce enough tube power to drive virtually any speaker without strain. Conrad-Johnson components will never drive you from the room, because the company's philosophy eschews specs and measurements and honors the listener: "Performance cannot merely be measured; it must be heard. It just sounds right." All Conrad-Johnson components are designed and built by hand in the USA, with parts manufactured in-house or sourced from North American vendors. Small wonder that the company is renowned for its consistency, reliability, and integrity.
