LFD is a deliberately small company, well funded and thriving … and based in England.
We operate in the audiophile end rather than mass-market end of the industry and we deliberately keep a low profile. This is because every piece of LFD equipment is truly hand built – which means that production is not large and therefore every one of our models is subject to delivery delay varying from three weeks through to some months.
Our designs are proprietary which means that unlike some other makers we do not buy in preloaded off-the-shelf boards or apply similar cost cutting exercises. In many instances, key components such as the torroids that are part of our power supplies and our multi-diameter silver interconnects used internally in our more advanced products are built exclusively to our demanding designs and are not available for purchase by other makers.
Excerpt from Stereophile Magazine Review
“Dr. Richard Bews, proprietor of England's LFD electronics, has once again upgraded his and Dr. Malcolm O. Hawksford's original integrated amplifier, the 65Wpc LE (née Mistral): a perennial ST favorite, owing to its complete lack of convenience or "luxury" features that degrade sound and add expense. To those ends, all iterations of LFD's solid-state amp have lacked balance and tone controls, headphone jacks, extra sets of speaker outputs, digital displays, and, especially, remote controls. The LE, which Dr. Bews builds in small batches, provides five line-level inputs (but no phono section), and is made with only the highest-quality parts, some vintage (NOS), some custom-made. According to ST, the new LE V—whose improvements all seem to arise from a combination of sturdier casework and more refined parts—"is a showstopper. I mean that literally. I didn't want to write; I wanted to listen." Compared to the LE IV, which ST owns and loves, the LE V represents "a substantial improvement. Everything just fit into place: harmonics, timing, resolution." Quoth he: "Buy your LFD LE V today." (Vol.37 No.7)”
