We build audio systems for people that are not interested in distortion or compression as being a part of their listening experience. All of our designs are the shape and finish they are in the pursuit of one thing; High Performance Audio.

​Nathan Funk and I created LDLC by inventing the science. We saw that the industry was in a stalemate with it’s own standard and each new standard ultimately ends up being a different way of explaining the same thing with very little progress in actually catering to the way our ears work. We stepped back and critically analyzed audio and found that the fundamentals haven’t changed since the 1950’s. With too much focus on the minutiae of feature filled gimmicks and not enough focus on a product quality and developing a performance standard that holds manufacturers accountable, the industry standard really isn’t for us. We like performance in LDLC terms more. It is clearly defined and does not allow for tomfoolery.

We were disappointed with the selection of off the shelf drivers available, so we set a new goal, developed the science, created LDLC, and abandoned the accepted method of designing, engineering, and even building audio. If that doesn’t make us professionals, it definitely makes us brave inventors.
