Lightning Boy Audio is all about NOS (New Old Stock) Tubes and hand crafted paper in oil capacitors.
Most companies cut corners on components to save a buck, often using parts and building techniques that get the job done quickly and for greatest profit. LBA uses the best components regardless of price and you don't pay more for it. The LBA way is the old school way of using turret boards (if any boards at all) and wire instead of printed circuit boards. It takes longer to build something this way, but LBA firmly believes it sounds better and the enjoyment of sound is what its about.
