AGD Productions – The Audion Monoblock Amplifier
What’s new in audio? Not much in the past 40 years or so. When was the last technological shake-up in audio? Compact Disc, maybe? From there, digital technology has spawned endless formats of claimed resolving power that is rarely capitalized on. What I have had a hankering for is not another format war, rather, HARD technology. Like the birth of the solid-state transistor that knocked vacuum tube amplifiers on their heels.
To my surprise, such a technology flashed into existence a couple of years ago, that is truly revolutionary, and I have been oblivious of its existence until now. AGD Productions leverages this technology in The Audion amplifier. For the first time in my roaming of the “audioscape,” I can say I found a product that is truly a “giant killer.” Honestly, I despise “audiophoolery” when it comes to cliché descriptors, however, The Audion has forced my hand. C’est la vie!
