Roger Gibboni Discusses: What’s the Warmth in Tube Amps? Featured in Copper Magazine’s 31st issue.
 
Why are we, as audiophiles, entranced by the reproduction of music using vacuum tubes?
 
As it turns out, noise is traditionally thought of as something to be minimized in all high end audio systems. However the proper reproduction of noise is actually the key characteristic that makes tube amplifiers sound so good. This article explores why noise is so important to the “tube sound.”
 
There are volumes of theory regarding how tube amplifiers saturate and produce harmonics and how their distortion characteristics affect listening. Here, we will explore how tubes reproduce noise and how this particular characteristic represents the basis of why tube amplifiers have a unique, characteristic sound that defines audiophile listening.
 
In order for us to explore the reproduction of noise, lets first define what we mean by noise. Noise, as applied to audio listening, is defined by three separate characteristics. For the purpose of this article, lets separate those characteristics and define them and their sources. Instead of using the generic term, noise, lets call anything that is not part of the desired soundtrack an artifact….

To say our first show with Burwell and Sons Loudspeakers was a success would be a huge understatement. The speed and balance of the Mother Of Burl horn loudspeakers were perfectly matched with the warmth and power of our mid-level EHF-100 MK2 integrated amplifier and delicacy of our PA-1A phono-preamp. A special thank you to all of our show partners and visitors, we hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did!

One of the chief reasons I fly to woebegotten Las Vegas, USA is: I love all the wild, eccentric audio persons that treat CES as a business-building pilgrimage site. The other is that CES is the best place to find new products to review. This year I found several, and the one that has me the most stoked is the Rogers High Fidelity 65V-1 class-A, single-ended EL34/KT88 integrated amplifier ($3999). Not to mention: I have never seen an amp painted with industrial-black crinkle paint that I didn’t love.

I have met Rogers’ president and chief designer Roger Gibboni several times, at his New York dealer Stereo Exchange. I have auditioned his amps powering a variety of loudspeakers, including the fabulous DeVore Fidelity Gibbon XLs, and they always sound vivid and athletic—fast-moving and excitement-generating. But I’ve never felt the urge to review one, until now. This time it was love at first sight.

Rogers High Fidelity introduced their new 65Wpc 65V-1 integrated amplifier ($4000) as part of a neat system: Besides the EL34 stereo Rogers amp, the system included a pair of EgglestonWorks Niko Bookshelf speakers ($2500/pair), and a Detroit-manufactured Shinola Runwell turntable ($2500). The components weren’t just made in the US, but beautifully made in the US. All combined, this system produced very pleasing sonics—and the Rogers integrated amplifier could be controlled from a Bluetooth-based iPhone app.
