IES was founded in 1996 by electronics engineer, Chris Jennings and ex-IBM engineer, Greg Speirs. In 2000, Chris resurrected the valve amplifier project and created a new, high-end design which, in the following year, became the critically acclaimed RA-01 mono power amplifier, our first hi-fi product.
All Renaissance Amplification products are designed to be practical, reliable and easy to use whilst providing exceptional performance. We want you to hear the music and not the equipment. As a very small company we compete on quality rather than quantity. New products are created only when we are confident that they will have something special to offer at their price point. From the technical point of view, all of our hi-fi products have an interesting story to tell but the whole point is to increase your listening pleasure by making music playback as involving and convincing as we can.
