Yves-Bernard André discusses "Signature" line
---with English subtitles and viewable in 720HD & Full Screen---

In 1981, Yves-Bernard André created YBA following his time designing electronics & turntables at Goldmund. In a very short time, YBA became a legendary brand that offered reference level accuracy AND to allow the listener to hear the music as well as feel the emotional connection.

Today, YBA returns to the US market with updated designs that incorporate world class construction quality...but always reflects the philosophy of  Yves-Bernard André.

˃ High Current (to drive difficult loads)
˃ Ultra-short signal paths

Anti-Vibration techniques including:
 
Signature series milled from 1 solid block of aluminum using "Space Base" technology to isolate circuits
 
Passion & Genesis series' thick, 9mm solid bottom plate to function as a vibrational grounding sink
 
3-feet with one foot providing a mechanical ground to evacuate vibrational distortions
 
Wood blocks on DAC chips to mitigate vibration (on select models)

Interview with Founder & Chief Designer - Yves-Bernard André
This interview was conducted in early 2013 by the journalist Matjek Isak after reviewing the Passion 650 Power Amplifier. It is a long interview and gives great insight into the man behind YBA.

α-Class A
"alpha Class A"

Yves-Bernard André:
"The power supply works like a class-A design, but the output stage delivers only the power required by the music signal. Therefore, you have the advantages of Class A operation - linear output with current on demand - without the negatives. Therefore, our amplifiers run cool, which improves reliability and avoids thermal stress on the components and the resultant parasitic vibrations."
