Behind the product
Behind the Angel stands our engineer Filip Tot, which is the main culprit for the creation of this device. Read his words below:
"I have been with Auris for more than 4 years. The arrival itself is a story unto itself. I had very little experience as a young engineer when I applied to the company HCP, which deals with the development and production of cash registers. During the conversation, I met my current colleagues as well as Milomir Trosic who presented some of his views on the company in the future and me as a worker in it. I liked the enthusiasm because I am a great optimist, so I accepted the job and within 4 days moved 350km away to the town of Krusevac, about which I knew almost nothing, and now I live in it and started a family. Miki very quickly recognized some of my qualities that I probably hadn't seen myself, so he transferred me to the audio sector, which I knew very little about, I didn't even understand the people who buy such expensive devices and I admired them. I got a lot of support and patience, and I returned it with tireless work because I recognized the potential of the company and what it needs. During these years I worked on many amplifiers together with Miki and other colleagues, such as Headonia, Nirvana, Euterpe, Legato, Ha2-SF ... Somewhere my contribution was bigger, somewhere smaller, but it was not so important as long as we went the right way.
Earmen's birth came like lightning after radiation, it was so natural. We wanted to reach more people because we had a lot of good to offer. We improved our knowledge of designing tube amplifiers, so we got the first devices, such as TR-Amp, Sparrow, Eagle ...
From the very beginning, we set out with all our might in search of the perfect sound, like a gold rush. That’s why we pay a lot of attention to subjective feeling, not just measurements. Whenever I work on something I always stick to our motto: Sound above all.
The path that Auris has traversed since its founding, and now Earmen as well, is special because we started many things from scratch, and our goal is to reach the top. We work tirelessly on new devices to try to share the happiness and excitement we feel when we first listen to them.
One of those devices is Angel, which I worked on for more than a year, looking for the perfect combination of components and a result that would not leave anyone indifferent. I wanted it to be perfect: multifunctional, with a lot of power, a big battery and beautiful sound. From the beginning, the solution seemed to be at my fingertips, but even when everything worked perfectly, the sound was not what I was looking for. I didn't sleep, I read until late at night, sometimes I was shocked but my colleagues supported me, so I continued that battle even when we all thought that there were no solutions to some things and that they had to be like that. It was only when I put it aside and relaxed that the idea for a completely different concept was born that brought us a handful of dynamics, Low Noise and distortions. The sound was absolutely beautiful.
I used to think that many things were illusions and exaggerations, but now I know that creating such devices is sometimes as much art as the songs that are played on them.
