TOAD is proud to partner with many fine companies

Without further ado, here’s a little bit about our manufacturing partners.

Joel and Ruth Spira founded Lutron Electronics Company, Inc. in 1961. Lutron’s first product was called a “dimmer switch” and represented the world’s first solid-state electronic device used to dim lights in a home, replacing bulky rheostats and autotransformers that were inefficient and unattractive. Although Lutron has grown substantially over the past several decades, the company still maintains the feel and personal closeness of a smaller firm, and to this day still operates under the guidance of the company’s 5 Principles:

  • We Take Care of our CUSTOMER
  • We Take Care of our COMPANY
  • We Take Care of our PEOPLE.
  • We Continue to INNOVATE with a HIGH STANDARD OF QUALITY.
  • We Always Deliver EXCELLENT VALUE.

Today, over 45 years later, Lutron is still devoted to controlling lighting. Our focus on product innovations, technology, quality, and customer service has made us the undisputed leader worldwide in the area of lighting controls. We offer more than 10,000 products to satisfy virtually any residential or commercial project. Lutron products adjust the intensity of virtually every kind of light, and we remain to this day the only company that provides an integrated solution for controlling both natural daylight as well as electrical lighting.

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives and the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship. Quality also marks the search for an ideal after necessity has been satisfied and mere usefulness achieved.

Bose Corporation was founded in 1964 by Dr. Amar G. Bose, then professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As an MIT grad student in the 1950s, Dr. Bose decided to purchase a new stereo system. He was disappointed to find that speakers with impressive technical specifications failed to reproduce the realism of a live performance. The quest for better sound was on.

Team spirit underlies all of our work at Vienna Acoustics, but when it comes right down to it, we achieve outstanding results because we are passionate. About what? Music, music, and music. And we have a vision: to bring you nearer to music by creating loudspeakers, clearly the most significant and important mediator of any sound system. At Vienna Acoustics, we have always been fascinated and motivated by the dramatic sound improvements a great speaker can provide. Mediocre systems prevent too many people from truly getting to know the joy of music, and we really appreciate the positive feedback we receive from all over the world about the musical Vienna Acoustics sound.

Vienna Acoustics loudspeakers are the embodiment of our passion, our self-realization brought to life in loudspeakers that bend technology to the service of music.

The brand that delivers excellence in driver, cabinet, electronic and acoustic design is Monitor Audio. Since 1972, Monitor Audio’s near fanatical commitment to quality in every aspect of loudspeaker design coupled with its willingness to innovate has inspired global recognition and acclaim. Daring to challenge design orthodoxy has been its signature approach.

The Acoustics

Music reproduction as a special auditory occasion. Offering the emotional excitement of a pure musical event to every listening experience through reproduction instruments that let the entire expressive power of music envelop the ear. These are the aims with which we Sonus faber build our loudspeakers. Our projects draw inspiration from the construction criteria of the lute-maker’s craft, as we are convinced that the quality characteristics of sound in a loudspeaker depend above all on the acoustic chamber – on its form and the materials it is made of – just like any other musical instrument.

The Design

Loudspeakers as elements integrated into the environment. The aesthetic component in Sonus faber loudspeakers stems from a conceptual choice: the result of a perfect dialogue between the language of forms and functionality. Acoustics and design meet in sonic euphony and visual harmony, just as is the case with musical instruments in which the stylistic matrix is also intended to define sonic identity.

Craftsmanship and Tecnology

Another essential contribution to the acoustic identity of Sonus faber loudspeakers comes from our special combination of craftsmanship and technology: on the one hand contemporary artisan craft in which the maximum expression of human sensitivity and skill can be seen in the process of selecting, working and treating the wood and building the cabinets; and on the other technology that reaches toward the avant-garde and employs renowned Northern European know-how to guarantee excellent performance from the individual drivers fitted in these units.
