DECWARE / High Fidelity Engineering

75 S. Riverview Drive, East Peoria IL 61611

(309) 822-5255

Hi... and welcome to Decware!   

Decware is a trademark of High Fidelity Engineering company, located here in the United States.

We are a small company where everyone takes a great deal of pride in producing the wonderful products that we've become known for.

We started with a single 2 watt amplifier called the Zen Triode in 1996.  Today the fidelity and design of our products is legendary in over 54 countries around the world.

As far as I know, we are the only audio company making high quality tube amplifiers with a lifetime warranty...  and there's a reason for that!

If you scroll down the page here, you'll see our highly competent staff.  We have over 100 years of combined experience in the lost art of hand making tube amplifiers and high efficiency loudspeakers.  Of course we also have the good karma of our company cat who you will probably meet if you decide to visit!

Listening appointments are always available.  Also if you haven't yet, please don't forget to bookmark our site so you can come back!  Owner and chief audio guru Steve Deckert has written 100's of great articles on hi-fi that you might like and we have a very active online forum that you might also enjoy.

Oh... one more thing... if you see something you would like to have on our web site, please buy it!  We think you'll be very glad you did!

Nikko had to sit on the speaker during the photo shoot because that's what cats do...  and he actually sat motionless during this 30 second exposure!
