Founded: 1979
Amber was born in 1979 in Charlottesville, Virginia USA.
It's founder was Keith Rosenfeldt.
Keith and Bertani Electronics in conjunction with National Semi Conductors had developed an audio circuit utilising the Motorola MJ2640 and MJ2650 as driver transistors driving the NSC LM391 03/04 chips.
Amber's first products released to critical acclaim in the US market were the CCCP Pre Amp and the original S70 Power Amp.
These were followed by the 50A and 50B Integrated Amps.
In 1985 the original business partnership had begun to deteriorate and financial issues ensued.
In 1986 Nikola purchased all stock, WIP, spare parts and design rights along with the naming rights to Amber Electronics from Bertani.
These products were shipped to Australia and local manufacturing began.
Originally Nik wholesaled the product via Audio Reference Technology.
In 1987 Audiophile was established in Brunswick st.
Since that time Amber has continued to locally manufacture Amplifier (Tube and SS) and Speaker Products.
At times, Amber has also rebadged certain items manufactured by others.
Amber also has Australian made cable drawn to their specific design.
Currently Amber products are retailed via Audiophile as well as being exported to the Czech Republic, and Austria.

This manufacturer was suggested by Franz Scharner.
