Audio Analogue was born in that beautiful part of Tuscany between Pistoia, Lucca and Pisa in 1995. The synergy between experts of high fidelity, electronic engineers specialized in various fields of electronic design and sales managers with years of experience in various sectors could only create the base of what is Audio Analogue today: a company, but mostly a brand among the most renowned in Italy and around the world to satisfy the palates of the most demanding audiophiles.
Products such as Puccini (both in the basic version that SE), Maestro Integrated, the Paganini, the Maestro CD, Verdi Cento, the Class A as the integrated amplifier as in the power amplifier version, along with all other models and their various versions that have come and gone over the years have marked our history and consolidated the statement of our brand in the world that has always been known for the undeniable sound quality.
Products truly MADE IN ITALY, heart, soul and substance, using mainly small and very skilled industries and craftsmen almost Km0 to make the most of the Italian excellence and raise the quality of our and their work. Equipment completely hand-made, tested with first-rate equipment, but also with listening tests, finding always the thrill of having created something which may give emotions through listening to favorite music.
What is the goal of a high fidelity device? The answer may seem simple or almost rhetorical, to reproduce voices, sounds and noises as they are created naturally. The answer is so easy but it is not as easy to realise the devices that allow us to implement fully this intention.
The main function of a unit created with this purpose is to manage a music signal and propose it to the fullest, but what does it mean to propose it in the best way?
Music is a wonderful world of the full cycle of our lives, gives us emotions, makes us laugh or cry, makes us remember and especially helps us to live, is the most abstract art form but also the easiest and most immediate to understand.
To reproduce a musical event, means making it more enjoyable to listen and keep trying to convey the emotions wrapped in the execution of the author or performer.
The basic concept that we use for the design and development of our equipment and the target we set ourselves is to get so high fidelity compared to the live event, but above all what primarily interests us is to get the '"high musicality" and then listening pleasure over time.
This is the reason why in the early stages of the project, the latest refinements are always those made "by ear" and that is just taking long listening sessions and going to touch those who are in our view the key points in the architecture of the device for the desired results, sometimes even having a detriment of laboratory measurements. With the introduction of Puccini Anniversary, product celebrating twenty years of our first product and then twenty years of our company activity, we have produced a decree that would mark a turning point in the history of Audio Analogue and would define the way for what will be the products of the future, created with the intention of giving the best sonic performances, but also technically very advanced. Products that will keep another tradition of Audio Analogue, the high quality/price ratio, but at the same time will have no compromise and every feature or functionality will be the maximum you can get for the type of product. Each new model will be designed and built for exactly what it must do, beautifully minimalist and targeted the objective of getting the most.
This is certainly a tall order and to begin this new cycle something unique like Puccini Anniversary was needed and here it was an even greater collaboration with Airtech laboratories that will give us in the coming months/years those products that for Audio Analogue will be the most significant for this new cycle.
