Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

And neither was David Sarnoff!

But look at the empires both of them built. Sal may not have been an engineer but he sure as hell understood their value and hired some of the best. As did Sarnoff.

How many amplifiers has Marantz sold in the history of the company? How many had Dennis sold? Doesn't look like much in common to me.

And who said these classic amps were state of the art? I sure didn't. Compare them to a modern SS amp in measured performance. Today 0.001% distortion is achievable in a consumer product. They couldn't do that back then so I think it;s safe to say audio engineering has advanced quite a bit.

I have worked in the broadcast and later the Hollywood studio business of 35 years. The absolute top recording studios are in Hollywood and Nashville. I have never heard the name Dennis Fraker in any studio technical discussion. How many commercial customers are using his products? Who are the recognized audio manufactures that consult with Dennis? Surely with all the RAMF awards somebody would have brought him on board by now?
