Like the vast selection of speakers and music in the world, there are many flavors in the world of hifi electronics. There are amplifiers that employ vacuum tubes in the circuitry, some that use only solid state devices in their circuit, and sometimes designers mix the two together. Which one is best? We’ll let you decide. And then there are other choices: go with separate components or with integrated amplification? And some amplifiers have multiple choices in a single chassis such as digital to analog conversion for your digital audio sources, a phono preamplifier for your turntable, and some even include an headphone amplifier. And then there truly separate components such as preamplifiers, amplifiers, CD players, independent DACs (digital to analog converters), phono preamplifiers, headphone amplifiers, and more. Which is right for you? What do you need? What IS all this stuff?!!! Well, that’s where The Audio Shoppe’s experience and excellent showroom comes in: we’ll help you decide using your own ears, budget, existing components, and more.

Audiophiles and sound engineers know that what feeds a loudspeaker will ultimately be as critical as the loudspeaker itself. This is perhaps similar to why top performing athletes pay close attention to the food that feeds their finely-tuned bodies. While Verity Audio’s engineering team of Bruno Bouchard and Julien Pelchat have designed their ultimate loudspeaker Monsalvat System to work with high quality electronics from a variety of manufacturers, their continued research has led them to develop their own Monsalvat Series electronics. The Audio Shoppe initially had to ask, “Why electronics? Your speakers are just so darn good!” But then we heard what these electronics can do and now understand why Verity Audio has entered the field of electronics design and manufacturing.
