Martin Audio was founded in 1971 by engineering maestro Dave Martin. His vision was to enable bands to play to larger audiences and be properly heard for the first time.
The reputation of Martin Audio speakers quickly grew and soon we were producing world class touring systems for the super groups of the day, including Pink Floyd, The Who and Supertramp.
We are very proud of this heritage and Dave’s central philosophy of the importance of the audience experience has remained. Today, Martin Audio enjoys an international reputation for supplying superb professional loudspeaker systems across the spectrum of touring, theatre and installation applications.
Renowned for integrity in design, technical excellence and the longevity of its products, Martin Audio takes system creation into a further dimension. Our mission is for every member of the audience to enjoy an exceptional sonic experience faithfully reproducing the artist’s performance.
Martin Audio products are more than just a box. The design philosophy places emphasis on the subjective sound experience as well as technical excellence. Led by Martin Audio’s highly respected Research & Development Director, Jason Baird, the R & D team works to produce the ultimate product for every application, with the conviction that the correct sound characteristics should be inherent in the acoustic design, not dependent on subsequent electronic correction.
The cornerstone of Martin Audio's success has always been commitment to quality. Only the best quality materials and components are used. Martin Audio enclosures are manufactured primarily in wood with its natural acoustic qualities and good look. They are reinforced where appropriate and finished with care and attention to detail to ensure we meet our customers' desire for durability, ease of handling and manoeuvrability.
