Von Schweikert Audio has been at the forefront of High-End Audio speaker engineering and manufacturing for more than 30 years. Over this time, our branded designs have earned more than 110 rave product reviews from the world-wide critical press including seven Product of the Year Awards. In fact, most reviews of our systems have received a strong recommendation to buy from the reviewer.
Because VSA is unique from other speaker manufactures in having a Chief Engineer (instead of a “bean counter”) who guides the direction of the corporation, we dedicate far more time and resources to research and engineering rather than marketing. This single-minded focus on achieving sonic perfection has led to many breakthroughs in speaker designs, including Mr. Von Schweikert’s conclusion that a “correctly” designed loudspeaker’s goal is to accurately “decode” the information received by the microphone. In essence, a loudspeaker should work like a microphone in reverse. This fact, coupled with his great understanding of Psychoacoustics (the way the mind interprets sound), has been the foundation of his research.
Von Schweikert Audio’s “sonic mission” has always been to develop speakers that can immerse the listener in a sound-field that is highly similar to a live event. One of our “secret ingredients” is that our speakers are designed to project a “bubble” of sound instead of the more common “beam” of sound. This “sound bubble” is vastly more fun to listen to, as the “sweet spot” becomes the entire room!
Von Schweikert Audio’s design team is well known within the industry and is often commissioned to develop new products or refine existing components for other manufacturers. We have consulted on projects for Lucas Film THX, Apple’s IPod components, MTV Studios, The Bazooka Tube automotive subwoofer, Infinity, JBL and Eggleston speaker designs, among many others.
