The commitment to high-quality tube audio gear of Thermionic Culture™s founder, Vic Keary, dates back to the first studio he built in the 1950™s, and his company has taken the best of what tubes have to offer, updating the circuits for the low-noise and distortion levels required for modern recording. Solid-state components are confined to power supplies so that the audio path is pure tube musicality.
