When an artist creates music, they build a world: a universe of details that intertwine and collide to create something unique. Behind each of these fine details is a story, a thought, a feeling or an idea, and it’s only when we are able to hear them all that we can truly immerse ourselves in a performance and see the world that an artist wants us to see.
For us, these details extend beyond the physical or technical to encompass the very essence of music itself. By resolving all aspects of recorded sound, from the subtlest inflections and intonations, to the sense of space, depth, time and harmonic movement, we strive to uncover not just the artistry in a recording, but the emotion, tension and atmosphere that lies beneath - presenting an experience where music feels both ‘right’ and complete.
We achieve this through fearless engineering, exhaustive development and meticulous craft. Founded in 1987, we have spent over 30 years redefining the boundaries of digital audio, developing a succession of pioneering products and technologies that present sound with every last nuance intact.
With each product we create, we exercise the same care, thought and obsessive attention to detail as the artists and creatives our systems are built to serve. Each one of our systems is designed and hand-assembled in Cambridge, England, by our world-class team of designers, engineers and technicians: an extraordinary group of people who are united by a passion for music and an unwavering commitment to mastery of their field.
