Having examined many of the amplifiers that were commercially available at the time they were generally disappointed with what they found.The mass produced Japanese equipment compromised sound quality while some of the more specialist British and American designs, though sonically better, weren’t very reliable.

In 1976 the company had designed and built its very first domestic Hi-fi amplifier, the A60. Having initially planned to make just 50 units the company soon found that demand greatly exceeded supply. In fact the A60 went on to become a Hi-fi classic, with more than 30,000 sold around the world. Many of these amplifiers are still in use today. It was the simplicity of the original design, coupled with the integrity of the materials used, that gave the A60 both superior sound and a long, reliable life.
