TentLabs is founded and headed by Guido Tent, born in 1967 close to Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Guido studied analogue electronics and graduated on the subject of linearity of (directly heated) triodes at a company called deJongSystems. For a few years he worked with that company, where he gained massive experience on design and repair of tube amplifiers, though limited prospects made him decide to change jobs and join Philips Semiconductors. He was involved in the field of EMC and signal-integrity (application, design and innovation of silicon). After gaining 5 years experience he changed over to product development where he worked on the first digital DVD recorder (Philips DVDR1000). He proceeded developping high speed DVD recording (mainly for PC industry).
In his spare time audio kept him interested. He developed and built tube based products and designed a high-end audio DAC. The DAC development gained deep insight in the field of digital audio, especially jitter. This finally led to a successful low jitter clock module.
As a result of all this work, and the interest of various people, TentLabs was born. Main businesses are:
High performance audio modules - analog and digital
