Looking for “tube sound” in Australian hi-fi audio? Build your own with one of Tube Sound Audio’s DIY tube amp kits suitable for use in Australia or check out our custom built systems.

So why is the vacuum tube back in favour? For some, like guitarists, the tube never went out of favour. It’s quite simple; in its operation a tube produces a distortion called second harmonic. The second harmonic is a frequency which is double the original sound and is an overtone which is abundantly produced by various musical instruments. It gives depth and richness to the sound, especially the human voice. The human ear loves it.

The solid state amp, on the other hand, produces distortion mostly in odd number multiples, which our ears find harsh. Serious counter measures in the solid state amp are required to overcome this making for a very busy circuit.

In audio, numbers do not always tell the story. At Tube Sound Audio we can demonstrate a few simple truths, like lots of wattage does not mean better sound.

Tube Sound Audio offers a new hi-fi experience. Discover the immense satisfaction of building your own tube amp, either by kit or at Amp Camp (see our Amp Camp page), our workshop in tube amp building where you are supervised through your own tube amp build.

We also do custom made, unique systems, carefully hand built and finished.
