Issue 1 – Our mindset of engineering design and technical methods for optimal sonic performance of ThivanLabs vacuum tube amplifiers

Point-to-point (P2P) is a method of connecting electrical and electronic components in a circuit directly without using a printed circuit board (PCB). This is one of the best classic methods of making vacuum tube amplifiers because if done correctly and optimally, the amp will have the best connection quality and the amplifier will have extremely impressive durability. Because it is a manual connection method, it takes more time and effort to be assembled than the method using PCB boards.

Minimalism and efectiveness in ThivanLabs R&D philosophy

The FR10 is the speaker model that embodies the ThivanLabs sound philosophy most clearly. We believe that “enjoying good music” is the same as “enjoying good food”. The first step to making a delicious dish is to get the freshest ingredients. In addition, we also appreciate the naturalness of food, corresponding in the audio field is the naturalness of sound. The naturalness of food can only be preserved when it is not changed too much after seasoning, and the use of too much seasoning is able to change and make it difficult to preserve the natural taste integrity of the original food. This is similar to sound! If too many objective elements are applied to the original sound, it will not be possible to get the so-called “natural sound”. Manufacturing audio equipment is similar, this process is both an art with rich creativity and requires strict technical standards. We don’t care too much about which manufacturer the raw material comes from and how grandly it is advertised. It can be the raw material of any unit that meets our very high quality criteria and meets the expectations we set for the product.
