By: |

Respondent: Phil Marchand, Marchand Electronics, Room 5218, 2019 California Audio Show.

What’s the “elevator speech” description of your company?

Marchand Electronics is Phil’s hobby that got out of hand. His main interest is designing analog electronics for audio.


What makes your company and products special – how do they stand out from the pack?

We try to make quality products at a reasonable price.

We specialize in electronic crossover, solid state and tube.


Which of your products do you plan to demonstrate at CAS 2019?

At the CAS we will show our latest tube SE amplifier that uses a big 211 type tube, the BTA40. It uses modern solid state circuits to drive the big vacuum tube.

This Single-Ended amp has an output power of about 20W with peak power of 30W.

Driving the BTA40 will be the PR41 Passive Preamp.

We will also have our solid state and tube electronic crossovers on static display.


Which sorts of CAS attendees should be interested to see and hear the products you will be demonstrating – and why?

Anyone who likes unique audio products of solid value will like our products and the show.


What are your thoughts on exhibiting at smaller, regional audio shows such as CAS 2019?

The larger shows have gotten too big, perhaps.


In your product space, what are you most excited about in terms of technology and market trends?

It is fun to apply the latest generation of components into analog audio designs.


Assuming you had the resources, what product would you want to create?

A bigger tube amplifier with giant tube would be great fun.
