From Beyond the Iron Curtain: Fezz Audio is Bringing Polish Hi-Fi to America

The Polish audio manufacturer finally has proper representation in the United States and they are part of the next generation of Eastern European Hi-Fi brands ready to make a splash overseas.

The Warsaw Audio/Video Show 2022 just concluded less than a week ago and it’s a show that we plan on attending in 2023. Having been to Poland twice since 1995 when I participated in “March of the Living,” it is a country with a very bright future. As we’ve seen from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Poland has become the leader of Eastern Europe and that extends well beyond geopolitical events.

Poland’s growing industrial and manufacturing base crosses over into multiple industries including consumer electronics. My family lived in Poland for more than 2 centuries prior to World War II, and the country is awash with talented engineers and entrepreneurs who never really had the chance to succeed abroad — until now.

The end of the Cold War and collapse of the Iron Curtain brought more than just political freedom to Eastern Europe and the Balkans; it created an environment for entrepreneurship and design innovation that has had a profound impact on the culture and economic future of the region.

The creation of a new middle class has fueled demand for western consumer goods, but more importantly, led to investment in domestic start-ups who have proven capable of competing with well-established brands from America, Western Europe, and Asia. Companies like Fezz Audio who have exceeded every possible expectation.

Bluebird Music, distributor of fine audio products since 2000, is pleased to announce their appointment as US distributors of Fezz Audio amplifiers.

Fezz Audio is an Eastern European manufacturer of exceptional vacuum tube amplifiers, preamps, and integrated amps. Fezz offers amplifiers in both single-ended and push-pull configurations, allowing customers to choose their preference, and pair loudspeakers with the most suitable amplifier.

Fezz’s single-ended amps are the first in the world to feature toroidal output transformers, which preserve the unique character of SE amps while optimally coupling their limited power output to loudspeakers.

The quality of tube amplifiers is largely determined by the quality of its output transformers, and Fezz is sister company to Toroidy, which supplies high-quality toroidal transformers to a number of well-known manufacturers.

The unique relationship with Toroidy provides Fezz with superb-quality toroidal power and output transformers designed specifically for their amplifiers, at a lower cost than ordinary transformers from outside vendors.

Why toroidal transformers? Toroidal power transformers have far lower flux leakage and less radiated energy than standard EI laminated transformers. This ensures that sensitive circuits won’t pick up noise from the power supply. Fezz’s toroidal output transformers provide extended bandwidth, flat frequency response, and low distortion; a patented winding process guarantees uniformity.
“Fezz amplifiers are equal or superior to those of many well-known brands, at very attractive prices,” said Jay Rein, President of Bluebird Music. “We think Fezz amps will be accepted and appreciated by both dealers and audiophile end users. They’re beautifully made, sound great, and are priced right.”

Pricing and Availability

Fezz Audio offers three push-pull class AB integrated amplifiers priced between $2,395 and $3,495, three single-ended class A integrated amplifiers priced between $3,995 and $4,995, as well as phono stages, headphone amplifiers and separate components.

    Beautiful. Style such as this never goes out of style. Tubes are the paintbrush of fine audio that gently strokes not just our ears but our hearts and souls. All is fine until we cross over into the pitifully, nay…make that the hideously obsessive world of the frAudiophile.

    And paint our selves in to a corner.

    For the record, “Fezz Audio” is a cool name for an audio company and I wish them all the best. That and they need VU Meters. Just like tubes those meters are class in glass.
