日本音响作坊Over the years Yamamoto Sound Craft has garnered universal praise for their single-ended tube amplifiers. Their line of amplifiers, preamplifiers and DIY parts are exquisitely hand crafted and wholly unique.
官网介绍：HANSS ACOUSTICS prides itself on designing and manufacturing high performance analog and digital components for the serious audiophile.
Our goal is simple, portray music as accurate to the original production without interfering, degrading or modifying what the composer or artist intended.
This is accomplished through precision crafted components built to exacting standards, which are extensively tested mechanically as well as carefully evaluated by our knowledgeable and experienced staff of audiophiles and engineers.
Our components are a combination of innovative design, high performance and a true love and appreciation of music. Our product lineup is meticulously engineered and built to last while taking into consideration the serious Audiophile who demands performance above all.
Tracing roots through Marantz, Dynaco, SAE, SUMO Electric, Great American
Sound Company (GAS), Constellation Audio and his last self-started company,
Spread Spectrum Technologies (SST), James Bongiorno's imprint on the audio
industry was as wide as it was deep. Recognized as one of the "pioneers of
audio" by The Absolute Sound magazine and one of the preeminent audio
designers of our time, Mr. Bongiorno is credited with designing the first
full dual-differential complementary amplifier topology that is the basis
for nearly all modern solid-state amplifiers today. Certainly the name
“Ampzilla” is one many audiophiles around the world fondly remember as
one of the most popular amplifiers developed. James' circuit topologies are
the stuff of legend, lore and imitation. His deep love for the music drove
his desires to create timeless works of audio art and in the end he created
a lasting legacy realized in his ultimate creations— the products for
Spread Spectrum Technologies.
Later in life, it was apparent to James that he needed a partner to honor
his designs and help with manufacturing. James had known about EJ Sarmento
of Wyred 4 Sound because EJ had been earning a reputation as a brilliant
engineer and Wyred 4 Sound products had been making a significant impact on
the current audio landscape. EJ was also well known in the OEM world as
someone who possessed mastery of circuit design and execution and deep
knowledge of manufacturing. Initial meetings included mutual friends and
associate engineers like Bascom H. King. The great BHK had been associate
designer for both EJ and Jim for some time. A great synergy was beginning
to take shape among like-minded audio pioneers.
In the early days of this partnership, EJ provided manufacturing
improvements and a “repeatability quotient” while honoring the circuit
genesis and ingenious power supply design of James'. EJ’s job was to make
these products work in a manufacturing environment that had equal parts
refinement and process control. This proved to be a wonderful exercise for
everyone involved. At no time did EJ stymie or contain these ideas. Even
down to the outrageous cosmetics of James' products, EJ simply made it all
possible in a repeatable and reliable manufacturing environment. Everyone
was happy, and the dreams of a legend were slowly taking shape.
More products were in the works, and EJ was at the helm of both development
and manufacturing. Concurrently, his reputation for designing and producing
audio products of his own that were innovative, reliable and sonically
brilliant continued to grow. At this point, the story began to go viral and
a growing underground buzz around this collaboration and product line was
taking form. Particularly in the rarefied circles of the high-end Asian
markets, the SST brand and products had begun earning a stellar reputation
for quality and artistry. The momentum continued to grow.
Unfortunately, some important decisions had to be made due to health
concerns of James' and the sustainability of the brand. James and EJ (with
the help of others) were beginning to map out a long-term plan for EJ to
take control of the ship. Eventually, EJ was able to purchase the company
and the rights to build these products and others that were already on the
drawing board prior to James' passing. It was important for EJ, then and
now, to honor the man, the designs and the spirit of their collaboration.
Today, we have a vibrant company with some exciting products like the re-
designed Son of Ampzilla II amplifier and Thoebe II preamplifier. These
products carry on James' tradition of innovative circuit designs, power
supplies and cosmetics. It’s a perfect marriage of classic yet innovative
design with the talents and forward-thinking of new leadership, and most
importantly, a pledge to make these audio products the best the industry
has to offer.
We would like everyone to know the depth and level of our commitment to SST
’s abbreviated but vital history and our plans are to expand this line,
including adding a dealer and distributor network. These are truly exciting
times for SST, and we are looking ahead.
