Our engineering

We’ve been developing and making CD players for almost 30 years, and for 40 years the descendants of the amplifier with which the company started in consumer electronics, and as far back as 1995 expanded into home cinema electronics, developing a world-class reputation for making some of the best-sounding AV electronics.

In home cinema we’ve also developed our own DVD players and, more recently, Blu-ray players from scratch here in the UK, engineering them using our decades of experience in CD players to ensure they play music as well as they do movies, delivering better all-round performance than other brands’ products.

Hard-won techniques for preserving and handling the most delicate signal and reproducing music with all its subtleties, nuances and excitement intact are now in our blood. We know that as audio moves on from CD to even higher definition formats, we’re determined our products should continue to serve the music faithfully and deliver maximum enjoyment to the listener.

Yes, we listen – we’re a company of music-lovers, after all – but we also test and experiment in a scientifically rigorous manner. We like to say that ‘we measure what we treasure’: we know that the better the engineering benchmarks we deliver the better the results we – and our customers – hear.

The future…

Hi-fi and home cinema systems are always evolving, and we – and our dealers – are here to help you keep up to speed with the latest developments, and make sure you make the right decisions.

Whatever future technology appears on the market we’re confident we can engineer systems that get the absolute best reproduction from whatever format is available.

We’ve shown that no-nonsense engineering can work wonders when it comes to bringing music and movies to life: now we’re delivering ever more ways to do that for a fast-changing entertainment world, and developing new products to make the most of whatever the future may bring.
