BAlabo (Bridge Audio Laboratory) is pronounced Bee-A-LABO. BAlabo is an audiophile company based around the designs of Fumio Ohashi. The BAlabo BP-1 MK-II power amp and BAlabo BC-1 MK-II control preamp make up much of the current audiophile lineup for the brand which is imported to the United States by Jay Bertrand.

All BAlabo products feature a unique industrial design and are fantastically overbuilt.
