Fezz Audio’s Evolution Series Amplifiers Unveiled: AXPONA 2023

From beyond the Iron Curtain? A new generation of Polish high-end audio manufacturers are creating some incredible new amplifiers. The Fezz Audio Evolution Series has arrived in North America.

Fezz Audio Evolution Series Tube Amplifiers 2023

Eastern Europe’s emergence as a hotbed of high-end audio is no accident. If you are surprised to see state-of-the-art electronics, headphones, and loudspeakers being made in Romania, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, and Poland — you need to get out more and understand that we don’t have a monopoly on talented engineers, innovation, or a deeper appreciation of music and cinema.

Poland is proving to be one of the most intriguing parts of this entire renaissance.

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.

The Evolution Series amplifiers are essentially identical to the existing models, known as the Legacy Series, except they are in a cosmetically different case. Legacy and Evolution models have the same features and specs and they sound the same. The Evolution models are priced slightly higher due to the higher costs of their cosmetically enhanced casework.

All Fezz Audio integrated amplifiers stocked in USA include tube cage and remote control. Fezz Evolution models are stocked in Black Ice and Sunlight finishes as shown below, Legacy models are stocked in Black and Republika finish as shown on the Introducing Fezz Audio page. Home theater by-pass, subwoofer output and Bluetooth are extra cost options available by special order only.
