Orchard Audio started in 2017 with my passion for electronics design and all things audio.
I designed an audio system for my own house. My guests and visitors loved it so much that I decided to commercialize the product(s).

The focus behind all of my products is audio performance. My product use state-of-art technologies to deliver a sonically accurate and unbiased sound.
I believe that all aspects of sound quality can be measured. Hence R&D efforts are focused on getting the best possible objective measurements. This will make great subjective results.
The PecanPi Streamer Ultra just received a fantastic review from Clive Meakins at Enjoy the Music.com
"What an amazing single box streamer/headphone amplifier! "
"Without a doubt, the ULTRA performs very well indeed. It produces a very even and balanced sound that is highly transparent, spacious, and..."
The PecanPi® USB/SPDIF receives a stellar review from Harris Fogel at Mac Edition Radio.
"The PecanPi® USB combines absolute silence with effortless dynamic range, and amplification. There is no sense of grain or grit, no matter how hard the unit is driven, even at full volume, nor is there any distortion, drift, crosstalk, or lack of musicality. We tested it with a variety of phones and IEMs, and in all cases it was a superbly musical, and invisible product. At no time could any of us discern an “Orchard Audio Sound” as it just got out of the way and let you feel the music."

Firstly, I would like to thank all of my customers for choosing Orchard Audio (OA) and putting your trust in my products.
2020 was a year of challenges for many of us. As more people are staying at home during the pandemic, they are also upgrading/updating the things around them. This included audio equipment. Due to this, OA saw a record number of orders, as customers rediscovered their love of music. However, COVID has disrupted many logistics chains, often cases causing delays. Thank you to all of my customers for being patient during these times. One of the things I am doing is maintaining a larger inventory to address these logistics issues.
Spending more time at home has also allowed me to develop a new, more powerful version of my Starkrimson® amp. These new amps will be called Starkrimson® Ultra. They will be able to do 250W into 8-ohms and 500W into 4-ohms and will be 2-ohm stable. Be on the lookout; more details coming soon.
Lastly, due to COVID, my operating costs have also gone up in order to be compliant with CDC and local regulations. Hence in 2021, there will be some price increases in my products. However, I will now offer free shipping on all orders to help offset this for my customers.
Try out these two curated playlists to start the year off with some great music:
Let's make 2021 a rocking year!
