Response Audio is Back - Tubes/DHT/GaN FET Hybrid
« on: April 17, 2024, 11:06:27 AM »
After a long hiatus while working for Purity Audio Design, I am no longer associated with Purity. Response Audio has re-emerged and is now back building custom designed versions of our products.
Products that will remain in the lineup but now under the Response Audio umbrella.

1- Spirit Class A tube linestage — for pairing with any of our amplifiers or yours
2- Spirit Hybrid GaN FET amplifier (while inventory last)
3- Harmonia v4 DHT output stage/preamplifier

Coming soon
- Master DHT preamplifier
- Master DHT Hybrid. 200/300 watt GaN FET output stage with 300B input stage
- Master DHT amplifiers 45/2A3 and 300B

The new Response Audio wed site is in process of being build and will go live this weekend. I will continue to build the site over the next few weeks.
Further details to follow.

Thanks guys. I decided it was time to go back to my roots and design and build products ranging from the affordable to more exotic designs. I also have a series of DHT amplifiers that have been in the design stage for some time now behind the scenes. I’m back where I belong.  :thumb:

Thanks for the kind words guys. It feels good being back in my original comfort zone after 30 years.
 I will be offering custom builds to the products on our web site.
Other than our Hybrid GaN FET amplifiers, we will be doing all tubes. The new GaN FET amps are just too good to not work with :drool: (We do not build our own GaN FET amplifier modules)
The MB series preamp, MB200H GaN FET hybrid will be available in acrylic or hardwood chassis with aluminum corners in addition to our standard aluminum chassis.
Being custom built, base product will be shown on the site but will have a dedicated section to showcase all of our builds. Per customers consent of course.

I am also still working with Raven Audio doing their assembly work. If you are looking for amazing sounding integrated amplifiers, cabling or speakers, be sure to check them out.
