Our amplifiers are hand-assembled with an uncompromising approach to precision engineering and Scandinavian design. Every component is chosen for its ability deliver sound at its purest, including world-class triode tubes and our silver-coated wires and solder. See the Company page to learn more about our approach and why it produces exceptional amplifiers.
LARS Power Amplifier
Named after our company’s co-founder Lars Engström, LARS is our critically acclaimed power amplifier. Each unit features the world’s best components and materials, hand-selected by Lars himself, alongside our own custom parts. Timo Engström’s unique glass outer mantle design causes a chimney effect that supplies ventilation and creates a constant working temperature for the tubes and interior. It also provides aesthetic balance, protects the tubes, and symbolizes the amplifier’s ability to provide a transparent quality to voices and instruments.
The LARS is a fully balanced power amplifier that operates in class A. It has a linear construction throughout. No negative feedback is used. It is configured as two monoblock amplifiers. Each amplifier has two inputs, one balanced XLR and one unbalanced RCA connector.

MONICA Pre-Amp & Phono-Stage
Named after one of our favorite Swedish singers, MONICA is a fully balanced and perfectly matching pre-amplifier for the LARS. It looks simple from the outside, but inside are best-in-class components and a lifetime of engineering experience. The MONICA is controlled via our own mobile app, so you don’t need to add another remote to your table.
The MONICA pre-amplifier has a fully balanced line stage. No negative feedback is used.
In the power supply all voltages are stabilised. The filament voltage is DC. The MONICA is a two-box design. One box contains the fully analogue pre-amplification itself and the other box contains power supply and control circuits.
All input and output connectors are located on the back of the analogue unit.
MONICA has six inputs for each channel, three balanced XLR and three unbalanced RCA connectors.
MONICA has four outputs for each channel, two balanced XLR and two un-balanced RCA.
