Alpha Recording System (ARS) uses only the finest of components in their products. They are respected for the fact they never compromise over the cost of parts, and are also aware that the usage of the best components available doesn’t always assure you the best output quality in a club setting hence the effort they go to deliver outstanding results as known by the world’s best DJ’s and clubs. Providing insight into every single details from the basic circuit design to the design of circuits in each section, their power transformers, resistors and capacitors they are very transparent in the production process.

Using industrial grade components that is not normally associated with audio can well be the key to produce surprisingly tasty sounds with unique depth and thickness. If they aren’t totally satisfied with the quality of a components, they go above and beyond to bring the manufacturers into negotiation and have them produce special orders to achieve their vision. They then run a series of tests for each of the components to make sure they are best suited to deliver the best results for club settings under a range of scenario’s. This aptly characterises ARS products showcasing the superb workmanship involved in their production. Relentless attention is given to every detail and stage. To finalise each products design, they run rigorous tests over 30-40 prolonged time periods in clubs not only in Japan, but also in the US and across Europe. All necessary changes are then made, taking considerable time which reflects in the price. It’s duly noted their inherent love for club music feeds their ongoing quest for best possible sound output, which signifies ARS different from any other manufacturer on the current market.
