Over 550 backers support "amplifier for the modern home"
Boulder, CO: (June 25, 2014) - PS Audio, manufacturer of fine audio equipment for over 40 years, is proud to announce that their Kickstarter campaign for 'Sprout', an all-in-one integrated amplifier, has now passed the $250,000 mark. The campaign, launched June 16, reached its goal of $36,000 in just over an hour.
"We're all incredibly excited by the support that's been shown to 'Sprout', " said Scott McGowan, PS Audio Director of Sales, and son of PS Founder, Paul McGowan. "We were sure there was a market out there for a basic music center with a modern, clean design, and the response to the campaign proves that!"
'Sprout' is the simple but high-quality hub of a home music system, and contains a 50 watt/channel integrated amplifier, a passive EQ'd phono preamplifier, 24/192 asynchronous DAC, low output impedance headphone amp and a Bluetooth receiver. 'Sprout' can thus play music directly from a turntable, any digital input, and wirelessly from a smartphone. The campaign can be seen here.
"'Sprout' is a step into a new market for us, and we're really pleased to see that the media and the public in general are excited by it, " said Paul McGowan. "We see a bright future for this little guy, and other family-members, yet to come."
The Kickstarter campaign for 'Sprout' runs until July 16, 2014.
