Founded in 2010, Stenheim quickly became a leader among Swiss audio brands.
Its five founders, Jean-Loup Afresne, Antoine Petroff, Maxime Perrin, Sébastien Benz and David Jilli are all engineers, passionate about sound and music. Prior to launching Stenheim, they worked together at one of the biggest names in audio equipment.
In 2011 – after two years of research and development – Stenheim launched its first range, the Alumine. These compact, all-aluminum speakers were created to be the reference model, to evolve over time to include a full-range system with subwoofer.
Given the Alumine model’s success, the five founders decided in 2013 to expand the young company’s horizons, handing over the company reins to Jean-Pascal Panchard – he too, a music aficionado and engineer by training, who brought extensive experience in the “High End” audio market – including experience gained with leading names in the Swiss audio industry.
Since its founding, Stenheim has embodied the values of precision and outstanding quality for which Switzerland is renowned. Inspired by micromechanic and watch-making expertise, we aim to offer very high quality products, with lively, warm audio rendition, and uncompromising design.
Wolf Audio Systems has a singular purpose. To bring great audio and the freedom of choice to listeners around the world.
Wolf Audio Systems sees a void in the digital audio market, where audio players are built on the notion that low-power equals high fidelity… an outright misconception. Wolf believes audiophiles deserve uncompromising sound and functionality.

Audeze’s origins go back to 2008 when founders Sankar Thiagasamudram and Alexander Rosson met engineer Pete Uka who developed specialized flexible circuit materials for NASA. They quickly realized the material might be perfect for headphones. That’s when Dragoslav Colich, who has 30+ years’ experience in designing planar drivers, joined the team as CTO to create the LCD-1 headphone.
They then created the legendary, award-winning LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones, and the higher-efficiency LCD-X and XC models. More recently, Audeze made planar magnetic technology accessible to a wider audience with the EL-8, SINE and iSINE series headphones.
Audeze feature proprietary planar magnetic designs with extremely thin-film driver materials and powerful custom magnets.
At Revel, science is at the heart of everything we do. While the rest of the industry focuses on shallow aesthetics, our engineers are busy in the lab perfecting the audio accuracy of our products.
Since our very first loudspeaker, we obsessively test and re-test every element so you get the most out of every product. The result is music produced with the utmost purity— music that's played the way the artist intended.
Every Revel product is the result of thousands of hours of work. Since 1996, we've relied on our technical resources, one-of-a-kind testing facilities, and cutting-edge design tools unavailable to most manufacturers to create every loudspeaker we produce. That's how we continue to set the standard for acoustical accuracy and allow Revel customers to experience a level of acoustic clarity that they've never heard before.
INNOVATIVE SYNTHESIS LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEMS take control of your emotions and never let go. For 60 years, JBL, Inc., has been the leading manufacturer of professional loudspeakers for recording artists and touring musicians, and, in a close collaboration with Lucasfilm® engineers, developed the underlying THX technologies, which set a new standard of realism in movie sound. JBL Synthesis loudspeaker systems represent, well, a synthesis of everything learned over the years about the precise reproduction of recorded sound. With horn-loaded compression drivers (an essential of cinema sound rarely heard in consumer systems), wide-dispersion titanium tweeters and high-definition crossover networks, Synthesis loudspeakers are among the most powerful and capable instruments ever to be used in home entertainment applications.
Arcam is based just outside the famous university city of Cambridge, and their story started the classic way: two friends with a passion for music and electronics met up while engineering students at Cambridge University, and founded Amplification and Recording Cambridge in 1976.
Thorens is the oldest name in entertainment electronics, founded in 1883 by Hermann Thorens in Sainte-Croix, Switzerland. The brand is still worldwide known for its high-quality record players. During the sixties of the 20th century the company moved to Lahr in Germany.
Formed in the early 1980s by Philip Swift and Derek Scotland, Audiolab earned worldwide acclaim with the 8000A - an integrated stereo amplifier that became a classic ‘step-up’ from the budget models of the time.
During the ensuing years, the 8000A established itself as one of the most successful British amps ever produced, and was joined by a range of electronics including CD players, pre/power amps and an FM tuner. The brand switched hands in 1997, changing its name to TAG McLaren Audio; and it so was known until 2004 when Audiolab became part of the International Audio Group and returned to its original name.
"If ever a product defined its market, the 8000A is the one. Reliability, ease of use, engineering excellence and a well-behaved sound are the pillars supporting the justified reputation of the 8000A. Over the years, Audiolab's no-nonsense, evolutionary approach to design has widely been recognised."

Exposure has been perfecting the art of creating real hi-fi for real music lovers since 1974.
When products were expected to concentrate on doing what they did exceptionally well without fail, rather than getting bogged down with the latest gadgets and gizmos? That’s what we mean by real hi-fi.
What it will do, is to give you real music. Hair-raising and spine-tingling listening experiences. Exposure hi-fi is renowned for its ‘rightness’ of sound. There is delicacy in the upper ranges and openness in the mid-range, underpinned by deep yet agile bass that dances along. The design philosophy is to make hi-fi that gets on with the task of authentically reproducing any and every kind of music, while the equipment itself hides in the background. Which is smart thinking, since real music lovers prefer to listen to their music rather than the hi-fi.
Founded in 1986, we are a family-owned British company, passionate about sound and design

The pNEUPOD NP-1 is a pneumatic isolation device developed by pNEUANCE Audio. This product uses air compression as its major isolation method. The rubber diaphragm is a clever way of containing the air and allowing it to isolate in all planes.
The pNEUPOD device decouples (or isolates) the attached component from the platform on which it is sitting.
They say the devil is in the details but we’re more inclined to say that’s where the real difference is. To be honest, we’re a bit fanatical about it. Right down to the smallest screw. Seriously? You bet! There isn’t a single object or process in a Gamut speaker, amp or cable that hasn’t been examined to within an inch of its life to assess its impact not just on sound quality, but on musical performance. Every little thing earns its place, and every last detail serves a purpose.
Larsen speakers are designed to stand flush against the wall, using the wall to create a deep and full bass from a relatively small cabinet. This placement, combined with the unique positioning and angle of the drivers, flanked by absorption material, virtually eliminates the wall behind the speakers, thus eliminating early sound reflections from interfering with the initial direct sound from the speaker.

No useless bells and whistles. Just the pure and simple efficiency of leading edge technology.
Even our packaging follows this principle… nothing expensive, flashy or unnecessary .
But we think that you should judge for yourself. Try our cables… Your retailer will gladly lend you the model of your choice.

Wolf Audio Systems is the creation of Joe, David and Fred Parvey. Joe is an IT systems architect who has designed computer networks containing thousands of servers, and programmed and configured the automation solutions that manage them. So, I guess the guy knows something about how a computer works!
Wolf was initially founded as an R&D business, but Joseph’s early audiophile server designs were so coveted and requested by friends and family that he thought he would explore it further. Joe sees the audiophile landscape as being harmed by the move to file playback. However, he also feels that with the correct solution, an extreme server for audio and video, a new generation of listeners can move from ear buds back to audio systems.
