Our founder was an audiophile legend and classic bootstrap success story. With decades of wins in the speaker business—and renewed ambition to realize his potential as a California movie producer—1990 was the year he decided the home cinema experience demanded a high-end speaker that captured the million dollar sound he sought with relentless fervor… an unmatched sound engineered to revolutionize the entire audio landscape.
His passion for entertainment and precision sound is what allowed him to surround himself with other like-minded individuals—engineers, designers, and classically trained musicians—who also were compelled to create speakers fashioned for detailed, full-range audio. As a result of these combined efforts running parallel with the digital audio revolution of the early 1990s, Definitive Technology was born and quickly rose to prominence as the number one premium speaker brand in the country.
Year after year we continue to innovate, garnering top awards and the praise that's all part of it. Our perennial achievements are a constant fount of renewal because we invest in only the brightest minds to give life to our sound.
