The folks at Audio Note are hard core. Purist. Unfailingly committed.
They might be the closest to kindred spirits that Deja Vu has in the audio world. As outsourcing and subcontracting have flourished, Audio Note still does it all, from wiring and cables fashioned from slow-drawn metals to every capacitor, resistor, choke, and transformer in their amplifiers and preamplifiers. Audio Note turntables, tonearms, and phono cartridges reflect a long history of respect and affection for analog playback. Audio Note's speakers are handcrafted from baltic birch plywood, because designers found that plywood helps to control resonances, rather than kill them. Audio Note speakers boast a stunningly open, lively sound--like musical instruments. Simplicity and elegance are the hallmarks of Audio Note products. No flash. No bombast. Nothing superfluous. Always in service of the music.
