The main parts of creating a good tubes amplifier are the output transformers. They are made by hand on a mechanical winding machine, following the fundamental principles of passion and research by Cesare Sanavio who then handed down his son Luciano. His invaluable expertise is the milestone of the high quality of his products. They allow you to achieve high-end performance by surpassing competitors in the quality and power of his amplifiers without limit the sound. For this MastersounD, keeps his business secret very carefully.
MastersounD maintains a comprehensive inventory of quality vacuum tubes for every product it has produced during its history. These tubes are secured in quantity from leading manufacturers and vendors around the world, and must meet stringent standards for quality and reasonable cost. Once purchased and received by MastersounD, vacuum tubes undergo exacting quality control measures to further assure reliable. Power output tubes are first mounted in test fixtures and burned in for 48 hours. Only after a tube successfully passes these exacting challenges is it labeled and put into stock to be used in a new product .
Since 1994 MastersounD has been manufacturing high-end audio components of unsurpassed quality. From the very beginning the objective has been to create a perfect blend of highest-quality sound. Highly trained technicians assemble all MastersounD components by hand in its Arcugnano factory. Because “Made in Italy” is a label that is taken very seriously by MastersounD. Each component that bears the MastersounD name has been developed in its entirety in-house. As an audio pioneer, MastersounD has created a number of legendary components that have become icons of the audio universe.
TEST / LISTEN
After the production phase, the device is extensively checked. Each device passes 24 hours of continuous operation; finally, the parameters of the output tubes are checked. In the listening room, the devices are listened to and pass another 24 hours test. For the different models, different loudspeakers are available. One possible source is an analog disk player. Our acoustically optimized listening room allows reproduction of sound characteristics under optimum conditions. Once the devices have run through this check procedure, they have to pass different safety tests before they can be shipped into all parts of the world.
