Hafler web site (Febuary 10, 2010): David Hafler is regarded by many as the father of high fidelity. His design theory: create products that offer elegantly simple circuitry while providing superior sound.
In the early 1950's this passion and sensitivity of sound quality led to the patented design of the Ultra-Linear transformer technology. This was Hafler's infancy, Dynaco. This new company instituted the "kit" philosophy of customers building their own amplifiers which allowed the David Hafler Company, formed in the mid 1970's, to be very competitive in delivering incredible products like the DH-200 and the DH-500.
In 1987, the Hafler product line was acquired by Rockford Corporation of Tempe, Arizona. This led to more advances in products and technology including the patented Trans-nova power amplifiers.
Now, the largest recording studios in the world have adopted Hafler as their standard. From the single rack space P1000 to the award winning 9505. Hafler is the standard by which your work deserves to be judged.
Hafler website (September 2000): In 1954 David Hafler's 50 watt tube amplifiers shocked the audio world. 22 years years ago, the David Hafler company came to life by allowing audiophiles to assemble the finest amplifiers available. Today, Hafler offers the manufacturing expertise and technical innovations of a world class organization that provides the highest standards in critical listening.
