    MY TAKE: Since 1981 Mike Sanders has been producing well made, dependable and great sounding tube electronics. In a word, Quicksilver products epitomize the term value. The company’s designs are simple, reliable, and well-executed. Mr. Sanders believes in the value of point-to-point wiring, eschewing circuit boards in favor of more robust junctions between component parts. The quality of each and every part of the design is chosen with the intended task in mind and is selected for its sonic contribution to the goal. You won’t see advertisements for Quicksilver products in audio magazines. Mike believes that if you offer a quality product, reputation will spread by word of mouth. This cost savings allows Quicksilver to use top quality parts, and labor-intensive hand construction while keeping their prices low. We think you’ll find Quicksilver's designs to offer a unique blend of sonic strengths, excellent reliability, and superb value. - Galen Carol
