Valeriy Kuchkovskyy, chief designer and CEO of Audolici, plays the guitar and designs Audolici amplifiers with live music as his constant reference. Throughout his 20 years as a designer in Russia and Ukraine, he has strived to create amplification products that provide exceptional accuracy of timbre and timing and integrity of harmonic structure (hence his affinity for tube circuits), and also offer a state of the art level of precision and reliability.
Valeriy uses components of his own proprietary design in addition to top quality components from other high end manufacturers in all Audolici products. His cutting edge design elements that originate in the top of the line components are frequently incorporated into other products in the line.
Valeriy Kuchkovskyy and Audolici have developed an alliance with Portugal's INENC Porto, a government research and development institution, that offers Audolici a unique, invaluable resource for utilization of new audio technologies. The user experience also is a significant part of Valeriy's creative focus. His designs incorporate superior construction quality and finish. The experience of using Audolici products is one of tactile pleasure and pride.

Those with musical passion have a way of finding their own. I knew the first time I listened to Audolici I had found the component line I had been searching for to fulfill my personal taste to a "T". Acoustical walls seemed to fade away at the moment the toggle was switched to the on position. I was not alone.
In my first conversation with Valeriy Kuchkovskyy, in which he described his approach to design, I remember thinking "that makes sense". Valeriy and I both share the enjoyment of playing guitar and the relationship that develops from being so close to an acoustical instrument in tune. There's a layer of harmonic structure and body that one hears when listening to an instrument up close, as when playing it. Valeriy has created a line of audio components that captures and reveals this richness while at the same time providing the tonal accuracy and subtle spatial cues listeners have come to expect from high end audiophile products. Certainly Audolici components possess the desirable characteristics of "classic tubes" but provide much more in terms of harmonic accuracy, speed and reliability. Not to be overly simplistic, but Audolici components make me think of one word, and that word is "real".
Look closely at an Audolici design and you will see why listeners take such pride in ownership. Its fit and finish is matched by its performance. Many Audolici owners, for example, display their components with the cover off. Look inside or sit in a dark room while listening and experience the glorious glow of Audolici's tube design, and you'll likely understand why.
Audolici is the embodiment of high end audio. From jazz to classical, from live acoustical to studio processed music, Audolici hangs on every note and delivers it with meaning, fullness and remarkable clarity. Valeriy Kuchkovskyy's designs go beyond frequency reproduction and reach the essence of the musical note.
Audolici understands that every tube requires an engineered design unique to the tube's specification and performance parameters. Matching the correct component parts with the performance of the tube is a skill and craft possessed by few. Audolici doesn't end its design process by utilizing the best tubes, it begins with the best.
