Craftsmanship creates lasting value

Even more so than the choice of materials, the workmanship will determine how precious an object is perceived. Only when the veneer sheets are perfectly aligned, we will sense the warmth and durability of the precious German smoked oak surfaces. Only hand polishing the V2A stainless steel parts will single out the solidity and elegance of the material, augmented only by the optional 24K gold plating, another hand-made process. And even where just the ear will sense luxury, only a painstakingly monitored and precise winding process will finally render the pure and lucid sound that our hand made super-capacitors permit. True luxury knows only one goal: perfection.
