In the late 1960s the development of the transistor led most American manufacturers to pivot away from tube amplification.
Audio Research was the exception…

They knew tube amplification sounded better, and have been moving high end audio forward ever since.

Many accolades have followed, and today they continue to stand as one of the best American-made audio companies.

We are thrilled to be New York City’s premiere venue for Audio Research, and to introduce the New Reference Series.
