The Legacy Of Stemfoort
Stemfoort Audio started manufacturing high-end audio components in 1985 and was a partnership between a recording engineer and a small group of enthusiasts and audio designers. Two Pure Class A power amplifiers were the first Stemfoort products to be developed, these were bespoke and made to order. A line pre-amplifier and phono amplifier were later added to complete the range.
J E Sugden & Co Ltd acquired the company in 1988 and launched a high power integrated Stemfoort amplifier called the LPA-10. Two further integrated amplifiers followed and were a great commercial success around the world. The original founder of Stemfoort Audio is still an active and valuable technical director of the company today and designer of the SF-200’s unique circuits.
