Company History

The Company started with two small U.S. east coast custom amplifier makers. In 2001, Richard Wugang family brought in much needed capital, marketing expertise and industrial capability to the company. Richard Wugang, a former banker, audiophile and vintage classic amplifier collector, took the lead for the new company and recruited a few top US designers and engineers and expanded product lines into amplifiers, vacuum tubes, speakers and audiophile grade capacitors.

Today, Sophia Electric is a major tube amplifier manufacturer in the US audiophile market and also has many clients in European/Asian countries. We are looking forward to adding dealers and distributors worldwide to expand our markets to the next new level.

Sophia Electric tube amplifiers are designed by Richard Wugang and his father Dr. DWU and hand made by Richard Wugang family and company in the USA.
