PERLA AUDIO, INC.
Cherished as symbols of purity, perfection, and elegance, pearls have been a rare and valued gem for centuries capturing the eyes of many. Pearls are unique among gemstones in that they are naturally occurring and have different grading standards. These factors determine their beauty, quality, and value: size, shape, color, luster, internal and external quality and matching.

Perla Audio is a family owned and operated corporation located in Sparks, Nevada established in 2012. As President/Owner, I Shane Duffy am proud to say that everybody at Perla Audio shares the same passion. I have been an audiophile since the early 80's when I started designing and building loudspeakers as a hobby. As my desire to design and manufacture luxury high-end-audio equipment became an obsession, I began to look for the opportunity to re-enter the high-end audio industry in 2010.
I met Ronald Van Robinson in 2011 and was given an opportunity to hear the equipment that he had been designing and refining for the last thirty (30) years. From that moment on, we knew we had a winner! However, it has been one of the most difficult but rewarding experiences. The team at Perla Audio is fully confident in these products. These handcrafted products are the most unique and rare sounding high end-audio components in the world. Designing and refining musical play back components takes more than just a degree in electronics. It takes passion, skill, and decades of searching for the highest quality parts.
Ronald Van Robinson-Chief Engineer has over thirty-years (30) of experience designing and engineering high-end audio equipment, which is now Perla. Ron has designed tube and solid state amplifiers, loudspeakers, cables, digital and analog source components. Admiring many world renowned designers such as Ken Shindo, Dave Wilson, and Alon Wolf. Ron wanted to produce similar cherished products for consumers worldwide. While discussing our goals and the various products we had listened to, I knew Ron was a perfect fit for Perla Audio. We shared not only similar goals; we also shared the same principles of designing! Placing purity of sound first, never compromising the quality of any component regardless of cost and let the aesthetics complement its performance. Ron knew as well that this was the company he wanted to invest in. The decades of research and testing has been put into the products of Perla Audio. From the day we launched Perla, we have received recognition from some of the world's most respected leaders within the industry. In addition, we have also received awards from the Absolute Sound Magazine, Home Theater Review, AV Showrooms and the Audio Beat. In 2016, we have acquired two authorized dealers with more to come. While the rest of the world moves toward cheaper and smaller penny parts, we build our products with the highest quality parts and most sophisticated circuits, no compromise!
