I have known about Raven Audio and their tube amps for a number of years when I met Dave Thompson and friends at an earlier Capital Audiofest.  I was really impressed with the sound and look of his amps finding it hard to believe they were made in America and at the price point that was quite affordable.

I have watched the product line grow each year and surprised each year with all the new models.

I’m as interested in a good “desk” audio system as the next guy, and I have dabbled in assembling various small systems in my office over the last few years. Thanks to my old buddy Arnold Martinez of Tweak Studio in Chicago and LA, I’ve just experienced a small computer-based audio system with a very satisfying overall sound, so much so that I could use it as my primary system for quite some time without missing a beat.… Read the full article

Lou Hinkley’s musical epiphany came at the young age of 12.
