Extraudio are a small company located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, dedicated to the research, design and development of high-end audio products in pure class A and its combination with class D, creating a new category of amplification they call class AD.
Extraudio products are both unique and exclusive, hand made and long lasting, beautiful works of art for audiophiles. The amplifiers combine vacuum tubes with solid-state transistors as they do not defend any one technology in particular over another but prefer a combination of both of them to achieve their objective – maximum high fidelity and a completely flat frequency response.
The Extraudio line of products consists of preamplifiers, power amplifiers, integrated amplifiers, MM/MC phono preamplifiers, headphone amplifiers, DAC’s, CD players and CD transports.
“We very much like the sound of analogue as well as the sound of live music; we are obsessed by quality and attention to detail in our finished products; we care about beauty and purity in the reproduction of music; and, above all, we do not make the same mistake as other manufacturers whose products are created from a science or technology approach and with an eye on economic considerations. Extraudio was conceived not only as a logical result of our devotion to music and our professional experience as specialists in the audiophile sector but is also the result of more than six years of research and development dedicated to achieving a product that has not yet appeared on the market. Our multidisciplinary team made up of engineers, programmers, musicians, designers and audiophiles has worked closely together until they managed to create the Extraudio experience, which goes far beyond the present limits. The external design was inspired by the design concepts of Dieter Rams So, it should be noted that their design is very much in the line of “less is more, but with better execution.
“Extraudio, authentic, honest and sincere sound.”
