Founded by "Triode Pete", a licensed Professional Engineer, with a B.S. from Clarkson University and a M.S. from the New York Institute of Technology, Pete has been an avid audiophile since he was 10, when he repaired and restored his older brother's blown JBL L-100 speakers. Working for over 26 years in the power generation industry, Pete has gained considerable experience and knowledge in electrical theory and construction.
Experimenting with DIY power cords as well as interconnects, Pete constructed numerous variations and configurations with different metals as conductors, assorted construction techniques, various stranding sizes, different twist lengths and insulation, as well as grounding and shielding techniques. After all this experimentation, he found a material and construction combination that worked best for hi-fidelity audio applications that also could be assembled for affordable audiophile prices. One of Pete's philosophies as an engineer is Efficiency & Effectiveness; he believes that AFFORDABLE AUDIOPHILE should not be an OXYMORON!
