ELROG Vacuum Tubes Now Available in Australia
German manufacturer of vacuum tubes that have become widely popular, ELROG, have appointed Line Magnetic Australia as its sole Australian distributor.
ELROG's bespoke, handcrafted vacuum tubes are regarded by many as one of the best in the world for production valves today and are backed by a 12-month replacement warranty. The good news is that if you purchase a pair and one tube fails within 12 months, you'll receive a replacement pair.
ELROG today has a lengthy heritage. Deutsche Elektronenröhren Manufaktur GmbH was founded by Tube Amplifier Designer and Manufacturer Thomas Mayer in August 2016 to take over the manufacture of ELROG Vacuum tubes.
ELROG tubes were originally made by ELROG Elektronenröhren GmbH & Co KG, which was founded in 1986. The company says its roots, however, reach back to the famous Telefunken tube works in Ulm.
After becoming insolvent in 2016, all assets, production machines, brand names and know-how were acquired by Deutsche Elektronenröhren Manufaktur GmbH. ELROG tubes continue to be manufactured on the original production line at the original location of the former ELROG GmbH in the city of Hagenow, located in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Since founding the new company, Thomas is said to have reviewed all tube designs, engineering significant upgrades to improve sound quality and long-term reliability. The product portfolio has been extended from the original line up of 211, 845 and 300B tubes and now includes ten different tube types today. The tubes are entirely hand made in Germany by highly skilled and passionate people.
StereoNET caught up with and sampled ELROG valves at the Manila Hi-Fi Show in the Philippines last year, and we've been keen to try them ourselves ever since.
Campbell Nunn, General Manager, Line Magnetic Australia, told StereoNET:
We're proud to represent ELROG exclusively in Australia. We think that the ELROG products will complement any suitable tube amplifier to provide an outstanding upgrade, including the Line Magnetic range.
