While consistently advancing the state of the loudspeaker art for over 42 years, PSB claims no single technological “breakthrough.” The truth is rather less exotic and a good deal more labor-intensive: hard work. That means careful, critical system design, strict adherence to “value-first” principles, and deliberate – even dogged – development of drivers, crossovers and enclosures – all pursued over thousands of person-hours of lab, prototype-shop, and listening-room work. By concentrating on the continuous refinement of basic principles – smooth, accurate tonal balance, extended frequency and dynamic range, and true-to-life spatial imaging – PSB has produced results that are far more persuasive, and speak far more eloquently for themselves.
One of SONY's co-founders was a man named Masura Ibuka. Mr. Ibuka was a remarkable man and it was his drive and foresight that helped to make SONY what it is today.

The SONY name now stands for quality and innovation. Today, SONY Corporation is one of the most widely known business names in the world. The SONY name stands for quality, coupled with unique and innovative solutions. It seems that they have revolutionized most of the areas in which they have chosen to compete.

Sonos is a wireless HiFi system that lets you stream all the music on earth to every room in your home. Access your personal music library, favorite streaming music services, and over 100,000 Internet radio stations from around the world. The Sonos app lets you find, play, control and explore your music, your way.
Easy to expand, you can start with one room and then add throughout the home. Wireless technology makes it simple to install speakers in rooms without wiring. No speakers in the garage or by the pool? No problem. Sonos has a variety of products to meet every audio need. Choose from a line of fully integrated wireless speakers or wireless amplifiers (just add speakers). Sonos even has a soundbar and sub-woofer for your surround sound system. All your rooms are integrated so you can play a different song in the living room, bedroom, even kitchen, or the same track in every room.
One simple app brings together all your favorite music services, and lets you control everything – from songs to volume to rooms. And it runs your smart device, Android®, iPhone® or iPad®, so no hunting for remotes. Worried about fidelity? Don’t be. The Sonos Trueplay app listens to your room then fine-tunes your speaker so it sounds great, no matter where you place it.
Sometimes, you have to make something different to make something great.
All Episode products are conceived, designed and manufactured with one goal: sounding great in your home. The result is a line of audio products that deliver real performance in the real world. Episode is more than just speakers and their wide range of audio applications were built with you in mind - to bring your favorite sounds to life.
Episode speakers deliver an immersive audio experiences that you will remember forever. That infamous movie line, flawless piano solo, or the ultra-realistic sound of your team’s winning game are all perfectly heard - every time. They have speakers perfect for any room. Filling the space with pure, full sound that begs the question: what have I been listening to?
Episode Signature speakers make you sit up and take notice. The opening credits of your favorite movie will give you chills. That great riff from your classic vinyl will seem studio-crisp. Every moment resonates with a heavy mix of the bold and the familiar. Get ready for the next generation of sound.
Episode Signature speakers feature ribbed surrounds to create linear cone movement and cleaner, tighter bass. Full, room-filling sound starts with proper dispersion. When a woofer is set too far back in a speaker, the sound tunnels and you lose that “sound everywhere” quality. With forward-mounting and flared baffles, Episode Signature speakers fulfill the promise of wide dispersion to fill your room – and your life – with excellent sound.
An elliptical tweeter avoids peaks or dips in sound – when it sounds too hot or too muddy – because it breaks up the resonant frequencies that cause those peaks and dips. The elliptical shape spreads frequencies over a wider range for a difference you can truly hear. No matter where you install a speaker, you want to hear the same fantastic sound. An adjustable tweeter allows you to perfectly aim the output to suit your space. Top-notch sound is a given – you just get to hear it where you want it.
It's Not Just Sound. It’s Science. Full, pure sound is something that can actually be quantified. When you hear the fantastic sound of Episode Signature speakers, you probably won’t care why they sound great. Episode started from scratch to design speakers that would surpass what’s come before. After all, anyone can make speakers - but they make great speakers.

The growing popularity of smaller lighting has presented a peculiar dilemma to the designers of in-ceiling speakers. The Director Multi-Finish system matches the footprint of 4.25” recessed lighting. Seamlessly blending in with interior designs, this system adds an audible layer of Feng Shui. Origin Acoustics solves height obstacles with their ThinFit™ Collection. Featuring sealed enclosures that are only 70mm deep these in-ceiling speakers can be installed in even the tightest spaces.

Making speakers to be heard and not seen has been Acoustic Origin’s passion for decades. Once installed the only visible element is the grille that is magnetically attached to the speaker. The ultra-fine perforation pattern and incredibly thin outer bezel in the Director Collection hide the speaker and blend discreetly into any décor leaving nothing but an almost imperceptible shadow. The fit and finish of Origin speakers are as clean and impressive as their sound quality. Once installed the speakers become a part of the environment where they disappear unless, of course, your pride of ownership moves you to point them out.

The real point of all audio equipment for the home is obviously enjoyment — of lifelike, involving sound from music and movies. Some of the fun in buying audio components is deciding (and swapping views on) just how lifelike their sound really is. NAD takes as much pleasure in that as anybody else, but never loses sight of the central aim - enjoyment. The three qualities they feel are central to enjoyment are performance, value, and simplicity.
In audio electronics, the bottom line is that the waveforms that go to a loudspeaker should be identical to the ones originally produced. They should have the same time-relationships and dynamics they did at the outset. Keeping those factors straight – without adding any overlay of any kind – is what every NAD component is designed to do. Every NAD product at every level is designed and manufactured for satisfying performance – for realistic, detailed, convincing reproduction of the original sound.
The absolute rock-bottom principle from which NAD design philosophy operates is that good design is never at the listener's expense. They throw ingenuity rather than money at design challenges. The focus is on supplying everything customers would want in a given product.
Complexity is the enemy of good performance in audio equipment. Every step up in the elaboration of an electronic circuit is another chance to get it wrong – to introduce something that degrades the final sound. Going for simplicity and high value produces excellence. The result is sound as clean as that of a fine piano. People consistently notice it in NAD equipment. They also notice a level of sonic detail from NAD products that is the direct result of simplicity.
This design approach in no way degrades performance. NAD’s energy and engineering goes into internal components of extremely high quality. Inside the gray boxes you will find parts you otherwise would see only in very expensive equipment. NAD puts their focus on the inside where it counts, and you can hear the results.
