In the process of designing a new loudspeaker, Phil Clements painstakingly selects component parts to optimize numbers regarding the sound and the performance of the final product, not the numbers on the accounting department's spreadsheet. The only shareholder he needs to make happy is himself.
Because of their crushing overhead and massive shareholder pressure to squeeze every last drop of profit out of every last unit, our mass production competition is forced into choosing components based on cost, which necessarily introduces compromises in the design.
We are a small and nimble operation, if we were selling many hundreds of thousands of units, a few dollars per speaker would matter a lot more to the bottom line. However, it would also matter a lot more to important things like off axis response or the joy that you realize when you listen to your favorite music translated by one our innovative and masterful designs.
There are a few other good small design oriented companies out there, we think that there is plenty of room in the marketplace for all of us. We encourage you to check out their stuff, we are confident that unless they have licensed our H-PAS technology, you will like the music that we make better. Even if they are in the H-PAS fold, we are constantly refining the design and the finer points of the technology will always be in our products.
After all, it's about bringing the music home to our friends. We will always remember that.
