Image Audio History
By Adam Rackham, Chief Designer at Image Audio
I have always had a great interest in quality sound reproduction and originally worked as a sound engineer in a London based recording studio.

That’s what I believe, and if you can experience the music or soundtrack like it was intended to be heard from a pair of speakers that can’t even be seen, that’s got to be worth having.
