    Founded by Billy Thompson in 1974 on the wings of a successful live sound company, Ashly Audio is celebrating its 40th anniversary. “Ashly has always had a relatively slow but steady growth trajectory,” states company president Mark Wentling. “Many similar companies started out around the same time as Ashly Audio but have since closed their doors or been absorbed into other companies to become just another ‘brand.’ People have moved on and factories have been shuttered or moved overseas. “Our… View this story

Tudor later studied electrical engineering at the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute but switched to the Berklee College of Music, where he studied film scoring, jazz, and music production. He co-founded Boston’s Metropolis recording studio and recorded such well-known… View this story

    Chandler Limited is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Company founder, owner and chief product designer Wade Goeke started the company in 1999 while living in North Hollywood, CA. Goeke worked a “day job” in order to make ends meet and, during nights and weekends, spent what little time he had left in his workshop, which at the time, was a walk-in closet in the house he rented. It was here that his vision for his contribution to music and sound began… View this story

    Brock Adamson first got into audio as a teenager while living near Toronto, but entirely by coincidence. “When I was about 16,” he explains, “I was exposed to some fairly high-powered amplifiers and loudspeakers – a stereo system for the family home that had a lot of horsepower that came without any enclosures for the woofers. I don’t know why, but I went after it and built the boxes.” In fact, his success in the audio industry, examined as the… View this story
