Alclair Audio is primarily known for serving the Live Sound market with incredible sounding monitors and driver configurations that make sense for the performing artist at outstanding prices. With the new Studio3, Studio4, and Electro electrostatic hybrid, Alclair has created something truely special for the studio and audiophile markets.
The Studio3 triple driver is musical and dynamic while still revealing detail and clarity. The Studio3 is one of those "must hear" monitors that is hard to describe accurately, but is an instant joy to listen to.
For those who prefer a hyper accurate sound signature, the Studio4 is hard to beat. Four drivers, three bores, and our custom Forza copper cable deliver low distortion and a High Definition output. The Studio4 has found its way onto many studio recordings, in some cases being the only monitoring deviced used to mix.
The Electro is the worlds first custom electrostatic hybrid. Dual electrostatic tweeters and four balanced armature drivers across four bores give the Electro unparalled sonic detail. In our view, the Electro is the best in-ear monitor ever made. But then... of course we do.

Founded in 1970 by Bill Johnson, Audio Research is the oldest continuously-operating audio manufacturer of high-performance vacuum-tube electronics in the United States. Audio Research still crafts all of its products in its Maple Grove, Minnesota facility, inserting and soldering every component into each audio board by hand. Not satisfied with "audiophile-grade" parts, Audio Research designs many of its own parts including capacitors, transformers, and wiring, having them custom-manufactured in North America. Every finished component is bench tested, burned-in, then bench-tested a second time before it is auditioned in a reference music system. The attention to detail is even more fanatical today than it was in 1970. Audio Research strives to maintain the value of its products worldwide, maintaining the ability to repair or restore virtually every product manufactured during its first 49 years. Even with countless rave reviews and product-of-the-year awards over the decades, you must hear Audio Research products for yourself to fully appreciate their peerless sound quality.

Who is Fina ??
Final was established in 1974. Its first product was a cartridge. It had a groundbreaking figure eight air-core coil with a cantilever cut from a one-carat diamond. Through its technology and ideas, final devised solutions for problems associated with the necessary evils of adhesives and iron cores; the resulting extreme clarity of sound was highly regarded. The companyÂ’s approach to things Â– pursuing that which is fundamentally right Â– is no different today, despite our focus having moved to headphones and earphones. In the process of developing Sonorous 10 - released this summer - and Sonorous 8, we went so far as to go back and create manufacturing equipment; in doing so, it took 3 years from our announcement of the models to their launch. Improvements made were low-key Â– we manufactured parts with precision and assembled them with high accuracy. The results were great. We are very happy to have the chance to showcase the fruits of our labor, Sonorous 10 and Sonorous 8. Final audio design has returned its name back to final, the name used when the company was first established. We intend to move forward producing not only earphones and headphones, but a variety of other products too.
At Haniwa we believe that the definition of the perfect audio system is one that exactly and faithfully reproduces music. No “coloration”, no “added bass” no “softening” of the sound. Music must have all the energy, smoothness and creativity of the original performance … no exception. Music should mimic the original artists performance itself in real time. That’s why at Haniwa, we have worked for over 30 years to develop the worlds only system that exactly and faithfully matches the musicians performance. When people hear Haniwa, they know instantly that it is very different and unlike any other stereo system they have heard. Some people discount the system because of its unconventional look and small size or because it is not what they are used to hearing. Many others, especially listeners who frequently listen to live music, appreciate the realism, beauty and simplicity of the Haniwa approach. The technology behind the development of Haniwa is a fascinating study in perseverance toward a singular goal. As an engineer and medical doctor, Dr. Tetsuo Kubo spent his career developing new theories on sound, audio reproduction and how the brain processes what we hear. He has applied that theory to Haniwa where in simple terms “the output is equal to the input” for both frequency and timing (phase) of the music sound wave. What makes Haniwa very, very different from other systems is that in addition to a flat frequency response, Haniwa has a flat phase response as well. With a flat phase response, music maintains its crispness and remains true to the original recording. Two measurements define how closely “the output equals the input”, those measurements are step response and impulse response. The Haniwa system has optimal step and impulse response curves in stark contrast to competitive products. Another innovation unique to Haniwa is that all sound comes from a virtual point source with single driver speakers delivering a pinpoint Real 3D soundstage like nothing you have heard before. The result is Haniwa Truesound.

The Paradigm Brand Story
Most speaker companies were started and run by a clever guy who had specific ideas about what was important in speaker design. He typically implemented his ideas with off the shelf parts, put them into cabinets, wired up a crossover and sold them. People’s reactions tended to be either love or hate – which led to the belief that what defines a good speaker is purely subjective.
However, Paradigm isn’t like most speaker companies. We combine science, engineering, art and manufacturing to produce speakers that are not only better sounding, but integrate better into the home and provide a better value.
We base all of our speaker development and design on landmark research that was done by Canada's National Research Council. Over two decades of double-blind listening tests with thousands of volunteers proved that 96% of people prefer speakers that have the following characteristics: flat, accurate midrange response; wide, smooth off-axis response (wide dispersion); and low distortion. We combine those parameters with industry-leading driver designs that gives every speaker we build significant low bass response and higher power handling than our competitors. The results are neutral sounding speakers with less of their own sonic signature, fuller bass and higher output than our competitors' designs.
We are known around the world for our performance and value. At the time Paradigm was founded in 1982, the top-ranking speakers that exhibited the 3 main NRC parameters were very expensive - out of reach of the average music lover at the time. So, Paradigm’s goal was to produce speakers that were preferable by 96% of the population, and also be accessible to the majority of people interested in music in their homes.
Paradigm's founders poured their money back into the company, building the largest, most complete speaker and electronics manufacturing facility dedicated to a single brand in North America, if not the world. This gives us an economy of scale that ensures the highest quality, performance, and value in the industry. Over time, repeat customers wanting something even better drove us to higher levels of performance with commensurately more luxurious industrial designs, fit and finish. As the prices rose in proportion to performance, being the best value in the market remained the same. Today we still rely on real science and engineering; we fine tune the speakers based on controlled listening sessions, wrap them in world class industrial designs, and build them ourselves from the ground up. Our approach produces speakers whose performance is less subjective or a matter of taste. Because they don't have a sound of their own they sonically get out of the way while gracefully integrating into a home. Paradigm speakers reveal the true essence of a recording better than any other brand of speakers in the world.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded by one of Austria's leading high-end audio distributors, Heinz Lichtenegger, in early 1991. A genuine music lover and a dyed-in-the-wool audiophile, Heinz challenged the common "cost-no-object" approach to analog audio equipment by manufacturing turntables, tonearms, and accessories at a reasonable price without compromising build quality or sonic performance. With his passion for high-end audio fueling a desire to take a familiar industry in a new direction, Heinz proceeded to use Pro-Ject Audio Systems as a locomotive to bring high-end gear to the masses. Since then, Pro-Ject has been steadily gaining steam to assert itself as one of the most respected names in affordable, audiophile-grade analog gear. In 2007, Pro-Ject Audio officially launched Box Designs, a subdivision of the company dedicated to redefining the concept of audio electronics once again. Focusing on a small form factor that could easily integrate into any lifestyle, Heinz was able to pack the same sophisticated circuitry found in traditional high-end audio components into a box a fraction of the size. By adhering to that philosophy while still only using quality electronic components that deliver sound that far exceeds their stature, the engineers at Pro-Ject redefined what is possible in high-end audio and proven that great things do come in small packages.
We love music and high-end audio and have been building products and providing services that support both for 45 years.

Raidho - For the Journey
– In Denmark, exploring is in our blood. Our ancestors built ships – and what ships they were. Sailed across the widest seas to undiscovered lands, horizons were for expanding, corners for turning, chasms for crossing… These days that spirit of adventure is alive and well, embodied in innovative Danish design and iconic products. It’s in our DNA. At Raidho we too follow our dreams and our hearts: what our ancestors brought to geography we bring to the art of recorded sound. They built ships previously undreamt of: we build speakers that make music a living, breathing, thing. Beyond the facts of the sound, beyond the technological horizon, that’s where you find the essence of the performance, the emotions it stirs, the reactions it conjures. That’s what we seek and where we seek to take you. We do it by using new technologies and innovative materials, blue-sky thinking and a lot of experience. We make our own drivers and components – because nobody else does it the way we want. We build everything in-house – because the devil is in the details (and there’s a little bit of devil in every Dane). We build speakers with boat-shaped cabinets – speakers that stand bold and stark, like masts against the sky. The result is a range of products that are anything but ordinary; they don’t look – work – or sound like other speakers. It’s what makes them special. It’s what makes the music they make simply extraordinary. Take them on your journey and you’ll experience extraordinary too.

Sonore was founded with a simple question....how do we play hi-resolution music in audiophile quality? As it turned out playing hi-resolution music was the easy part while making them sound good was not. When large off-the-shelf computer hardware with complex software players were the norm we preferred making things smaller and simpler. When the thinking was that 1s and 0s didn't care about the quality of your power supply we preferred making things cleaner. When computer audio meant using computer parts we preferred audiophile inspired designs. When the audio industry seemed content with business as usual we preferred to call for change one product at time. It's time to be inspired again by your music.

Vandersteen Audio always has been and always will be a technology company. Vandersteen speakers for decades were built around Richard Vandersteen’s patented reflection-free aerodynamic midrange drivers, which remain paragons of low-distortion musicality. Minimal-baffle cabinets, bi-wiring, resonance-reducing spiked feet, battery-biased crossovers, high-pass-filtered powered subwoofers and powered-bass speakers with built-in room EQ are just some of the innovations that originated with Vandersteen Audio’s speaker products.
Vandersteen Audio’s speaker designs today are built around the most advanced dynamic drivers ever conceived, the patented Perfect-Piston™ drivers featured exclusively in Vandersteen Audio’s Model Seven Mk II and Model 5A Carbon speakers. Richard Vandersteen spent 10 years developing these Perfect Piston drivers, which utilize a totally unique carbon-fiber/balsa wood/carbon-fiber sandwich that provides perfectly pistonic driver performance and accuracy without the sonic colorations inherent in metal drivers.
These innovations illustrate the difference between a speaker company and a true technology company, and begins to describe why listening to Vandersteen Audio’s speakers and electronics is such a transcendent, one-of-a-kind musical experience. The kind of unforgettable experience that stands out in a world of products that are all “good.”
Vandersteen Audio designs and manufactures time- and phase- correct loudspeakers and cutting-edge electronics. All Vandersteen products are proudly designed and manufactured in the USA, in Hanford, CA.
