Lars Engström: "We aimed for the best possible audio listening experience and created a power amplifier with a sound so pure that you never get tired of listening to your music."

The wood and glass exterior is made with the same philosophy. Designer, Timo Engström continues a long Scandinavian design tradition. He works with traditional materials to bring form and function in to one.

Timo Engström: "We wanted to match the pure sound quality with an equally elegant form. Like a beautiful music instrument, we think of the Lars Type 2 as an instrument for music reproduction."
