Welcome and thank you for checking with us.
We are a Polish company, founded in March 2010 and wholly owned by Lukasz Fikus.We operate out of Warsaw, Poland, and manufacture everything by order in our Warsaw plant.
Here are some principles we follow and those we don’t:
•We design for the sound
•We choose to over-specify everything, even if only on the assumption that it does not hurt
•We believe that triode vacuum tubes sound good and that op-amps sound bad.
Everything we do is designed in-house and manufactured by hand from components and parts sourced locally from adjacent businesses.
It is hard to position a small ambitious company among the existing giants. On one hand today’s electronics is dominated by Sony, Samsung, LG and Apple. On the other end there are the high end giants , at least those who survived the “MP3 armageddon” and the home theater tsunami. Like MBL, McIntosh, Goldmund, Audio Note, Audio Research and the like. I strongly believe there is a room for a company which mission is to deliver the ultimate musicality using down to earth solid engineering principles and out of the box thinking. We want to create products that have no equal in terms of sound, but that cost reasonably at the same time.
We don’t like the way 90 % of the products on the market sound. Not that we think they are bad products, they just don’t sound right to our ears. We design our stuff differently. We listen to our customers and we listen to the music. We listen to our products for extended time. Each and every employee of Lampizator is an audiophile himself. Each of us listens to the music at least half of our non-sleeping time. we have a superb listening living room in the factory where products are tested in real life situation and environment. Untill everybody in our team is happy with a given new product - nothing gets shipped.
Tubes will never go out of style and digital conversion technology already WAS great in 1985. Nothing new will happen there in our lifetime. It is our genuine craftsmanship that makes the difference.
We are a Polish company wholly privately owned. We don’t have investors, silent partners, bank credit or any kind of debt. We are a sound business growing organically and collaborating with 40 vendors and selling in all continents and all countries. There are over 1800 happy users of our products in over 100 countries.
•We believe that feedback is a bad practice and we never use any of it - neither local nor global. We only use customer’s feedback.
•We don’t spend money on marketing and on shows and on advertising. You pay less this way. Our only way of communicating the message to the potential new buyers is via the word of existing happy users. Occasionally our dealers do participate in shows and reviews or audiophile get-togethers.
•We are not retro, we are not about nostalgic stuff, we are not grandpa’s radio with magic green eye. We use tubes only because they help us achieve desired technical goals in the best possible way.
