    Egg-Shell Tube Audio Amplifier

    We are Encore Seven
    We are the creators of the Egg-Shell Brand

    We are a specialist producer of stereo hi-fi vacuum tube amplifiers for home use

    We take great care of giving our products superb and unique look, with no compromise on the quality of sound. We are proud of wide soundstage, high detail separation, musicality and natural sound with full dynamic range which our amplifiers are able to reproduce. Our style and values are fully reflected in the Prestige series amplifiers. Every single unit is hand-crafted, with the greatest focus on the workmanship.

    Egg-Shell brand

    For us design and manufacture is art

     

    In the Egg-Shell amplifier you will touch, feel and hear our passion, you will notice expertise and see experience gained throughout years of designing vacuum tube amplifiers

    Our experience in engineering and production of the vacuum tube-based musical equipment has its beginnings in the mid-90s of the 20th century. So has the brand name and the Egg-Shell logo. It was the time when one of the company owners started his first experiments and attempts to design and create his home made valve amplifier for guitar to use in the band he played in. Right the next step was to build a unit to listen to music at home. He built it for himself, slowly, with no rush, with the paramount ambition in mind: the sound to be reproduced with help of this amplifier should be perfect enough to satisfy the designer himself. This special sound was soon given a name: the Egg-Shell.

    We own the Egg-Shell brand which covers all the existing models of our tube amplifiers. Our experience in engineering and production of the vacuum tube-based musical equipment has its beginnings in the mid-90s of the 20th century. So has the brand name and the Egg-Shell logo. It was the time when one of the company owners started his first experiments and attempts to design and create his home made valve amplifier for guitar to use in the band he played in. Right the next step was to build a unit to listen to music at home. He built it for himself, slowly, with no rush, with the paramount ambition in mind: the sound to be reproduced with help of this amplifier should be perfect enough to satisfy the designer himself. This special sound was soon given a name: the Egg-Shell.

    Usually everything starts with some need. When additionally the need meets with the passion, skills and technical capabilities, then something good is created. Our need was a desire to possess a good amp music playing a clear sound without compromises and without an embarrassment when it is accompanied by the branded devices commercially available, even if they were of the highest quality.

    This need was able to meet only the equipment built on tubes. But that’s not all – it should have looked different than that you can currently buy – just better! We decided to do it for us and our friends for the best.

     

    The body was designed by professionals. The design studio of Paweł Hankus successfully fulfil this task, giving us a simple, balanced body with excellent proportions with the idea of putting graphics on the top panel and the wheel of the volume control placed innovatively. The large, horizontally positioned wheel gives an utmost precision in setting the volume. And the front panel should have made of glass. This inspired us to deploy the tubes in the middle of the amp in a different, attractive way. We invented V setup. The inclination of the tubes was also the only way not to affect the body proportion and fit them inside. Graphite glass and mirrored surface inside the amplifier have resulted in a remarkable visual effect. The removable top panel further enhances this effect, and a proven electronics scheme isresponsible for the excellent tonal qualitity.

    Review of Egg-Shell Prestige 15WS vacuum tube integrated amplifier

    It is very nice to see an artisan manufacturer expressing their skills in their own way and not following the herd! The circuit, functional and style design are different to anything that has passed my way before.

    Review of Egg-Shell Prestige 9WST vacuum tube integrated amplifier

    It’s just a pure high-fidelity. These are the amplifiers with very high-end quality. The Egg-Shell Prestige 9WST delivers the sound of maturity and sophistication. It can be compared to a vacuum tube devices like Leben or Cary Audio – a similar class elegant and sophisticated style sound.

    You should know that Encore 7 substantially contributed to the record-breaking Audio Show exhibition in Warsaw (8-9 November 2014). And here is why: in the Jan III Sobieski Hotel we displayed our latest top model of the integrated vacuum tube amplifier: Egg-Shell from the Prestige line.

     

    The 2014 edition of the Audio Show beat the record, indeed, when considering the number of visitors. They could hardly push their ways to audio rooms of the most interesting manufacturers or dealers. And so was the case with our room no. 429 in the Sobieski Hotel. This was the very location for the live demonstration of our most powerful vacuum tube amplifier, which we specially prepared for the exhibition.

    Until then in our Prestige line you could choose between two models based on theEL34 power tube: Prestige 9WST (9W power output per channel) and 15WS (15W power output) and one model based on KT88 (10W per channel). We have now complemented the range with the new 20 W output power Egg-Shell Prestige 20WKT model, with absolutely unique remote control.

    For the perfect sound transmission we used Dave Acoustics Monitor 1 loudspeakers and the Audia Flight CD player (this superb brand is distributed in Poland by Audio Cave, who also showed their impressive collection of vinyl LP records). Wiring from theBlack Rhodium was perfectly matched with the whole system by Mr Karol Zieleznik from the Hi-Fi Studio in Bielsko-Biala, Poland.

    It is finally worth mentioning that in our showroom we proudly showed for the very first time an analogue signal processor ASP LITE-02 by PONA. This revolutionary design helps bringing back all the physical and acoustic rules to sound reproduction when playing a CD or better HD files. You may learn more about this unique concept from thePolish Audio Claster website.

    Feedback

    • "I loved, I mean LOVED the Voxativ stuff from Berlin. (...) Very impressed." - Commented the famous mastering engineer Steve Hoffman in his forum after listening to the Pi loudspeaker at T.H.E. Show in Newport Beach (USA)
    • 6moons reports about Voxativ and the 9.87 system. click here
    • The web based magazin Audio Traveler about the 9.87 system: "The sound was very linear and cohesive with the single drivers giving pinpoint imaging and 3D-sound staging and the spruce cone and Japanese-paper whizzer lending a life-like timbre to strings and voices with tight, authoritative bass that never gave a hint of boominess or disconnect from the midrange."
    • AUDIO magazine - One of Germany biggest High-end audio magazine reviewing the Ampeggio Due: "This loudspeaker is one of the most frugal converter in the over 35 year history of AUDIO. (...) So directly real and vividly you have probably never heard a concert grand on a hi-fi system." 
    • Jonathan Valin - The Absolute Sound (Highend Show Munich, May 2013): "...the sound was extraordinarily present, a little lightweight in balance, but exceptionally open, boxless, and detailed. In the midrange single-driver speakers are nearly impossible to beat for sheer liveliness and life, especially on voice...for their midband realism alone, the Pi and especially the new Ampeggio were 'Best Of Show' contenders..." 
    • Jason Victor Serinus - Stereophile (RMAF, October 2012 ): "...extremely impressive, solid, warm and inviting sound. 'A cut above the rest' I wrote in my notes..."
    • Peter Breuninger - AV Showrooms (RMAF, October 2012 ): "...the sound was superb but three rooms stood out... the MBL suite, the Wilson/VTL suite and the highend- electronics suite featuring the Voxativ loudspeaker. " 
      "...the most involving and intimate sound was to be had from the Voxativ loudpeaker being driven by KR amplifiers."

    The Ampeggio also won the "AV Showrooms Gold Show Award for Best Sound" at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest October 2012. CLICK HERE to watch a video on YouTube from our room with highend electronics at the RMAF 2012.

     

    • Jason Victor Serinus - Stereophile (T.H.E. Show Newport, June 2012 ): "... Beautiful! Remarkably close to natural sound. The highs are wonderful, ..."
    • Customer feedback (T.H.E. Show Newport, June 2012): "...This was the most musically involving and musically 'correct' system I have ever heard. I have never felt so emotionally connected with the music"
    • Jonathan Valin - The Absolute Sound (RMAF October 2011): "...I can tell you this: On the Gospel Ship cut of Joan Baez in Concert no other speaker at RMAF sounded as lovely, lithe, and lively as the Ampeggios. It was the most natural reproduction of voice I heard at the show..."
    • Clark Johnson - Positive Feedback Online (T.H.E. Show Newport, June 2011 ): "...in the Highend-Electronics room we encounter magnificent one-way sound from the German Voxativ loudspeakers driven by KRamps... the Ella cut I've been playing around, on a CD-R made from a 1963 master tape, sounds better than ever!"
    • Winner of Product of the Year 2011 Award (Stereophile December 2011): "...clearly, the Voxativ Ampeggio fuels our passion for music. And with that in mind, it really should come as no suprise that thisstrange new speaker is our Product of the Year 2011. In its design, appearance, and sound, the Voxativ Ampeggio is bold, beautiful, distinct, and fun - a product to admire, love, and honor. Congratulations Voxativ - and thanks!" 
    • Art Dudley of Stereophile wrote (August 2011): "...the Voxativ Ampeggios showed the same considerabletransient speed, spatial presence, dramatic ease, and physical impact as the best Lowther applications I've heard - and lacked the English speakers' most egregious flaws."
      "Low frequency tones, from just below 40Hz and up, hadreal power, color, and physicality via the Voxativs... Midrange sounds wereopen, clear, and stunningly present: the kind of playback performance that makes use of the word transparent not only forgivable but almost mandatory. The trebles were similarly clear... and, perhaps most important of all, there was no upper-mid response peak. No shout. No glare. No shit!"
      "...the Voxativ Ampeggio went beyond sounding good: More than once, with too many records to mention, I found myself stopping to marvel at its brilliantly good pitch certainty... I was able to enjoy everything I played through them - not just as sound but as music - withoutfatigue, frustration, or, worst of all, lack of interest." 
      "...the sort of spatial presentation that some audio perfectionists cherish: a deep and sizable chunk of pure, open sound, minedfrom the original quarry and transported to the listener's room, "air" and all: The Voxativs, more than any other flea-wart-friendly speakers with which I'm familiar, did the soundstaging thing. In spades."
      "More than just a Lowther without a shout, this is a Lowther with a foundation, a Lowther with real bass - a high efficiency, single-driver loudspeaker for which no excuses need be made. Just a few years after giving up on the idea, I've now encountered a single-driver dynamic speaker I could live with; in most audio reviews that's faint praise, but in this one it's a revelation. In the months ahead, I'm certain the Voxativ Ampeggio will change many more minds..."
    • Srajan Ebaen of 6moons.com wrote (September 2010): "...the Ampeggio appears to be a milestone inmodern widebanders... it's presently one of the most compelling samples of the breed and surely the best I've encountered by not a small margin. The Ampeggio also is a musical instrument not merely on looks or because of who makes it. It's a musical instrument in how its superior time domain performance establishes proper harmonic fidelity in ways that read abstract or poetic but in the listening seat communicate themselves without any mouthfuls of fancywords."
      "Be assured though that the Voxativ Ampeggio goes places no Lowther I've ever heard has before... In my book then, this is a breakthrough." Read more at app.audiogon.com

    STRUSS AMPLIFIERS – Listen to more…..

    The "Struss” brand became famous at the market 17 years ago. But that moment was not the real launch of the company. The founder and chief designer of Struss Amplifiers, Zdzisław Hrynkiewicz - Struss went for the Rolling Stones concert in Warsaw in the 60's and that day changed his life. Willing to relive the concert experience at home, Mr. Struss, who heard the Rolling Stones concert, began designing audio amplifiers. Many years of research followed from the passion for music and the desire to aim at something that was not previously available on the market.

    The company has offered the following amplifiers: Struss 01-2, Struss 140, Struss Q since 1995, as well as the Struss Chopin amplifier, which was received particularly well by the market and was produced in various versions until recently. We cannot fail to mention the Struss R500 amplifier, which was the culmination of all previous research, ideas and patents of Mr. Struss. This amplifier was produced on demand, setting a new threshold for the integrated reference amplifiers (Dual Mono).

    Over the years, the company went through its ups and downs, but at the same time it consistently increased the number of its loyal customers and fans. And that's what convinced Mr. Struss to introduce a new project.

    Zbigniew Dyśko, a new investor and owner of Struss Amplifiers, impressed by Mr. Struss’s designing talent decided to support the company financially and with his business experience. Mr. Zbigniew Dyśko has worked for many years in the corporate world within a non-audio sector, but he contracted the passion for music a long time ago. Being an owner of the Struss Chopin amplifier and having the opportunity to use the R500 reference amplifier, he motivated the designer to work on new designs of the Struss amplifiers.

    New image of the company at the market, development of the sales network in Poland and Europe, and, most of all, new products offered by the company – these are fruits of more than one year co-operation of these two gentlemen.

    A few words about us.

          Our small, independent company was

          in 1979, the wave of demand for

          various electronic devices (mainly

          amplifiers). Insufficiency and poor quality I Started

          existing devices on the Polish market,

          caused the growing interest

          products produced by private

          manufacturers. We decided to make this market.

    Our products are from this period were under the name "BDSound"
     1977 - the first guitar amplifier transistor, unfortunately, was poorly rated by musicians which forced us to develop a tube amp. Served as a prototype for the old "Marshall" on loan for 1day from the Hungarian group "Scorpio" It was not an exact copy, because some elements could not win but the amp was good. He had, among other things transformer from the TV network "Rubin 710" and the voice amplifier outputs from Polish "Bis 100". Musicians were satisfied. From that time began? Us closer to familiarize themselves with the lamps and their applications, despite the general trend of the market, designers escape from the lamp to the transistors and integrated circuits. Years later resulted in the execution of dozens of amplifiers for musicians, especially guitar. On Our amplifiers played, among others, Stefan Machel of "TSA" and musicians from the "BIG CYC" 

    We built a large
    sound systems for horn speakers, including speakers from companies such as: Elektrovoice, JBL, Gauss, Fane, Celestion.

    After the release of the first CD players, returned to the concept of building tube amps for listening to music. We have performed their little you to order. In most cases, after listening they had better sound than many transistors amplifiers.That's why we decided to bring music enthusiasts tube equipment, such because we are. Mindful hope that the many hours of listening to music does not dissuade you from attending Audiophiles dear to the Philharmonic or jazz clubs, we recommend you our tube amplifiers.

    Renaissance tubes

    In the early 90's tubes and gone, and it seemed that the transistors and integrated circuits, and later digital technology will replace them completely. Tube devices were associated with large, heavy and energy-intensive structures.

    But who listened to every tube amplifiers quickly stated that the lights have their advantages. More familiarity with disappointment lovers noticed that the sound of transistor devices is far from ideal. Complained of dryness and metallicity, the lack of atmosphere and trim audio.

    Tubes although less vitality and energy efficiency are undeniable advantage. They can give a great atmosphere music scene, with soft velvety bass, and hot and suggestive diameter satisfy the most demanding connoisseur vocals.

    Such great results we get from the amplifier phonograph. Listening to him, we can be assured that the music will give us a lot of pleasure. The Renaissance lamp was reflected in our designs.

    Technology

    In our amplifiers use tubes made today by companies such as JJ-Electronic or Electro-Harmonix.

    Assembly technology is based on a combination of spatial and assembly of printed circuit techniques. This ensures complete repeatability produced amplifiers.

    Output transformers are performed on the multi-layered moldings of a suitable coupling EI core cross-section that provides high transmission of both low and high frequencies.
