BUILDER PROFILE > EPIFANI
the suits who advised against such a move.
We pushed ahead at a later date, and the
PS 400 and PS 1000 were born. Our flagship amp, the UL 902C, utilizes an amplifier about the size of two packs of cigarettes to produce 1800 watts. We chose to
put it in a 19" rack, but easily could have
made it fit in the palm of your hand.
What sets your amps apart from others?
Well, first of all, when we started all other
amps used to have some type of sound—
the manufacturers decided what sort of
sound you would get. You know when
you hear this brand or that brand. We
decided early on to give the tools back to
the player to achieve whatever sound they
want without limitation. We let you make
your own sound. We constructed the
preamps to be as flat as possible, with the
opportunity to create any type of sound
you have in mind. Also, we have fewer
components in our amps. When you run
the signal through too many components,
the sound is washed out. So we try to
keep circuitry down and keep the signal as
