Lightning Boy Audio
is dedicated to building high quality gear the old school way, but with the best NOS (new old stock) and modern components. Our sole-purpose is to hand-craft audio art that will last the ages and inspire future generations to reach greater levels of musical genius.Each and every LBA innovation is hand-crafted and hand-wired, point to point with silver solder no less, right here in the USA. North Collins, NY to be specific, by mad audio scientist, Dr. Mikenstein. (It should be noted that Dr. Mikenstein's alter ego is Engineer, Producer, and Owner extraordinaire at Gallery Acoustics Recording Studio.)
The Secret of the Lightning
In order to reduce costs and to increase corporate profits, many audio equipment manufacturers resort to using inferior parts and low cost building techniques. LBA is committed to using only the highest quality components and hand craftsmanship to make your sonic experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. We build the old school way, using turret boards and wire rather than the printed circuit boards (PCB's) used in most mass production equipment. All LBA equipment is hand wired point to point in North Collins New York USA. It takes longer to build this way, but it simply sounds better and sound is what we are all about.
