A Letter From Mike Sanders

As the founder and owner of Quicksilver Audio I am first and foremost a music lover. I believe the equipment should serve and honor the music, conveying the emotion of the experience to the listener.


Simplicity is my approach to all engineering at Quicksilver Audio. For 35 years I have been involved in the audio industry, intent on reproducing music in its clearest form. By the time I founded Quicksilver Audio, I realized the fewer parts, connections, and wires that the signal goes through, the more the essence of the music comes through. This also makes great audio gear affordable and reliable.


Adjustments that are simple to use are also characteristic of Quicksilver Audio products. All of our current amplifiers come with built-in meters to check and adjust bias, or are self-biasing.
Each part we use is chosen for the specific application from the best quality parts available. We then hand wire our amplifiers to obtain the highest sound quality and to maintain the build quality that Quicksilver is known for throughout the world. Quicksilver Audio’s transformers are custom built to my specifications. I personally check each amp and preamp before it leaves the factory to insure correct operation and so that you, our customer, will enjoy your Quicksilver Audio product for many years to come.
Our testing facility includes:

  • two Brüel & Kjaer 2033 High Resolution Signal Analyzers
  • Hewlett-Packard 3580 Spectrum Analyzer
  • three Sound Technology Harmonic and Intermodulation Distortion Analyzers
  • two Heath IM 5248 IM distortion analyzers
  • three Tektronix Oscilloscopes
  • Hewlett-Packard Harmonic Distortion Analyzer
  • Panasonic Low Distortion Oscillator
  • three Wavetek Function generators
  • two Tektronix 570 Tube Curve Tracers
  • two Tektronix Transistor Curve Tracers
  • three custom-made Tube Burn-in Machines for burning-in and DC matching power output tubes
  • General Radio Pink Noise Generator
  • B&K Precision 885 LCR meter
  • SMD wideband impedance meter
  • Audio Control Third Octave Realtime Analyzer
  • Computer controlled 24th Octave Realtime Analyzer
  • two Brüel & Kjaer 4133 Microphones, 2619 Microphone Preamps, and 2807 power supply

At Quicksilver Audio we have the knowledge and the equipment to ensure that all our audio gear is working optimally. This provides a solid foundation for the reproduction of music.

The Experience ...


You find yourself drawn to the listening room; you can’t wait to get home from work to turn on the stereo; you forget to eat and sleep while listening to your hi-fi–these are some of the symptoms of the Quicksilver Experience.


During the 35 years Quicksilver Audio has been making tube-type mono amps, we have gained a worldwide reputation for clean, uncolored musical sound. Our customers report the presence of the Quicksilver “magical midrange” in all our amplifiers, from the least to most expensive. Perhaps it is this; perhaps it is the direct clear highs, the defined but never “boomy” bass; perhaps it is something even less tangible. But the emotional experience of musical performance is conveyed through Quicksilver electronics in a way that is totally involving.


What our customers say …
“The Quicksilver Audio phono preamplifier is amazing value. When it arrived on our doorstep, I hooked it up immediately, let it cook for a while, while I started digging out almost our entire record collection. This unit really sings! If I had to describe the preamp’s qualities in one word, that word would definitely be: WOW!”


Fam. Michiels-Van den Steen, Belgium
“I have listened to a lot of high end equipment that dealers have loaned me. I have owned a lot of vintage and modern tube equipment. Nothing sounds better than Quicksilver amps and preamps.”

Tony Mauldin, Lewisville, Texas
“I am not in the habit of sending manufacturers love letters, but I had to tell you how much I’m enjoying this unit. My record collection has been reborn!”

Jeffrey Sorensen, Chehalis, Washington
“Mike–thanks for all your time. Your reputation in the business is the best of them all. Keep up the good work.”

Mike Gerardi, WINY, Putnam, Connecticut
