Our history

 

Since 1978, we have built loudspeakers with one ambition: to give you the best sound at the best price. We want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy good sound quality at home.
 

Our job is to make speakers that sound good, as well as scoring high in audio tests. You may think this sounds silly, but what’s really silly is that many speaker makers construct their speakers to deliver the ideal frequency curves when tested in echo-free (anechoic) testing chambers. Who lives in an echo-free testing chamber? No one we know.

Why this standard, you might ask. Many years ago, some sound engineers decided to apply what was, to say the least, a peculiar standard: namely, if a speaker had a straight frequency response in an echo-free (anechoic) test chamber, then the speaker's frequency curve would also be straight in a room at home. However, it's not that simple - the acoustics in a padded test chamber and those in your living room have nothing in common. If you've never been in an anechoic chamber, then you should know that the acoustics there resemble those of a small closet filled with winter overcoats.

In an ordinary room at home, on the other hand, all sorts of sounds are reflected as they bounce off walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, etc. If you put a conventional speaker in a room at home and measure the frequency response, it will be anything but straight.

Today, you will find Audio Pro in over thirty countries on four continents. If you ask the owner of an Audio Pro system what sets us apart from other speaker manufacturers, you will probably get a range of answers. Many speak of the magically pure bass, or what good sound quality they got for their investment, or in more ephemeral terms: “it just sounds so good... you can feel it!” It’s hard to describe a listening experience in words. There are only 26 letters in the English alphabet, but each of the marvelously complex mechanisms that are your ears contain 20,000-30,000 sensors that transmit the nuances of the sound image to your brain. Use them to judge for yourself. Listen...
