What tube amplifier company has a pedigree of NASA engineering, military specifications, and is handmade in the USA?
Why, that would be Rogers High Fidelity of course.
Basically, Rogers makes some of the best tube amplifiers on the planet. When we had a chance to visit their factory and listen to Bruckner's Symphony No 8 on their 34S-1, it sent shivers down our spines.
We chose to play up the heritage of the brand by showing the historical significance of electrical engineering in America. Radios were built tough for critical military and space applications, and that level of craftsmanship is embraced and used by Rogers today.
