Great recordings are the culmination of years of intensive musical training, great artistry and masterful audio engineering. Recreating the magical moments of inspired live or studio sessions with the help of audio techniques is a very challenging, but also rewarding, task. THÖRESS Puristic Audio Apparatus are designed to serve the distinctive music connoisseur who has the intuition and confidence to follow a path far beyond the mainstream fashions of high-end audio towards the utmost refinement in sonics.
We present radical and unique solutions to the essential design problems of tube-based audio amplification regarding circuit design, internal construction and build. The attention to detail present in all of our power amplifiers and preamplifiers results in outstanding characteristics which set them apart from the rest of audio. Since the true music connoisseur is certainly not willing to restrict himself to digital
audio formats, an emphasis on vinyl reproduction will be observed in our preamplifier product line. Our Parametric Phono Equalizer is probably the most sophisticated and versatile (tube) phono device available worldwide. And the phono section within our Full Function Preamplifier is by no means an afterthought or "add-on." It is a state-of-the-art phono amplifier onto itself, with three cartridge inputs fully dedicated to maximum performance from vinyl records.
THORESS considers power amplifier and speaker design to be symbiotic. Effective speaker design has to follow the principles of room acoustics closely, as the speaker performance is strongly dependent on the acoustical properties of the listening environment. We have carried out extensive studies in room acoustics and have developed a highly efficient speaker to perfectly suit the capabilities of our integrated and mono triode power amplifiers. As with our amplifiers, we have not adopted standard design approaches in developing our speaker. As a result, our speaker combines excellent efficiency with wide-band and smooth frequency response while preserving exceptionally good dispersion - within a very modestly sized cabinet! Bringing all these contradictory requirements into balance is not a compromise, but an art. THORESS systems are designed to be universal, in the sense that every kind of musical program will be reproduced in an equally appealing and convincing way. We consider this to be the most important characteristic of a truly world-class system for music reproduction. In order to reach the very top of musical reproduction, it is necessary to integrate all aspects of the audio installation. Accordingly,THÖRESS provides extensive customer support regarding room acoustics, speaker positioning, component matching, cartridges and effective vinyl record cleaning.
