New Vintage might be the way to describe the latest from LA-Based hifi shop ampsandsound. “Chief Mensch” Justin Webber just announced a new crop of hifi products that fit the bill well for anyone who wants to dive back into the days when 300b tubes ruled the roost. Some might argue that day is still the present, but few would deny the allure of the glowing warm tube that is perhaps the most revered amount analog enthusiasts. Along with the 300b Black Pearl power amplifier ($18k), a new 3-way speaker called the Hudson ($18k) and Yellowstone pre amp ($35k) will debut at AXPONA 2024 in Chicago next week.

“New House Sound Debuting at Axpona
Aliso Viejo, California: ampsandsound is thrilled to announce our new flagship sound, The Black Pearl
(300b), Hudson (3-way speaker), and Yellowstone (Preamplifer) all showcased together to exemplify
our House Sound. Following founder Justin Weber’s philosophy of quality above all else, our House
Sound’s uniquely American sound personifies what it means to have your cake and eat it too.
Much like its namesake, the Black Pearl is made of the stuff of legends: the Western Electric 300B. The
most famous audio tube ever made, and for good reason – it’s low distortion, clarity and purity of tone
set it apart from even other triodes The Black Pearl is SET perfection, and it truly excels with music
featuring a lot of inner detail or acoustic instruments.
The Hudson is a partial horn-loaded three-way loudspeaker system. These big horn, small form
loudspeakers offer the bass response, efficiency, dynamic capabilities, low distortion, and scale of
much larger designs in a much smaller enclosure.
The Yellowstone preamplifier is the newest and best example of ampsandsound’s work yet and
showcases the fidelity and bandwidth possibilities with a tube preamplifier employing strictly turret board
construction. The Yellowstone is the consummate purist’s choice.
If you wish to demo the Black Pearl, Hudson Speakers or Yellowstone, please contact us, or find us at
Axpona room 550 where the preamplifiers will be making their world debut. Our Nautilus Headphone
amp can also be heard with Audeze in the Ear Gear Expo, Booth 8200. One last surprise addition is the
Little Nugget our yet unreleased 17watt Stereo EL84 based power amp.”
