This Is Our Destiny
Our founder was an audiophile legend and classic bootstrap success story. With decades of wins in the speaker business—and renewed ambition to realize his potential as a California movie producer—1990 was the year he decided the home cinema experience demanded a high-end speaker that captured the million dollar sound he sought with relentless fervor… an unmatched sound engineered to revolutionize the entire audio landscape.
This Is Obsession Realized
His passion for entertainment and precision sound is what allowed him to surround himself with other like-minded individuals—engineers, designers, and classically trained musicians—who also were compelled to create speakers fashioned for detailed, full-range audio. As a result of these combined efforts running parallel with the digital audio revolution of the early 1990s, Definitive Technology was born and quickly rose to prominence as the number one premium speaker brand in the country.
This Is Proven Sound
Year after year we continue to innovate, garnering top awards and the praise that's all part of it. Our perennial achievements are a constant fount of renewal because we invest in only the brightest minds to give life to our sound—hiring proven talent and work ethic from the most prestigious institutions around, universities like MIT, Johns Hopkins, Stanford and Princeton. So from concept to creation, you're assured a finished product that is a confluence of intellect, resourcefulness and real obsession.
This Is Divine Sound
Located just 600 feet from Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan in New York City, the Trinity Church saw its 30-year-old pipe organ destroyed in the aftermath of 9/11. So, they opted for Opus 1, the Epiphany, a virtual pipe organ that is nothing short of revolutionary. Needing robust yet musical speakers to reproduce their original organ’s sound—complete with 9,000 pipes that ranged from 2-inch tubes to mammoth 32-footers capable of 16-Hz notes—Trinity employed the power of 60 Definitive Technology BP 10B tower speakers and eight BP 30 bipolar tower models because our superior audio matched the glory and vision of their world-class sound stage.
Our Design Is Timeless
A healthy obsession with sound requires a high level of intelligence to create forms that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to ear. Our design ethos is purposeful and rational—every detail you see serves a higher purpose. We don't do flashy nor whimsical. Sophistication and precision are the tenets we live by to exceed your unrelenting expectations. Yet, as we aspire to a look that’s sharp and precise, this method never undermines the emphasis we place on forward-thinking audio technology in everything we make, so the sound you hear is just as clean as the look you demand. In the end, bringing Definitive Technology into your home is the intelligent choice.
This Is Sound Unlike Any Other
Next-gen audio integration supported by cutting-edge research and implementation. Advanced speaker materials refined to perfection. A look that inspires every time you listen. No other brand approaches speakers like we do—giving them equal treatment as pieces of technology and design made to be revered. With headquarters in California—where modern technology continues to flourish and the birthplace of entertainment—we operate within a specific culture that demands nothing less than the extraordinary. And to that end, we feel right at home.
Innovation Never Rests
Developing our world-class sound allows us stretch our sphere of influence from coast-to-coast as we engineer each speaker from our Advanced Acoustic Research and Development (ARAD) facility in Baltimore, Maryland. More than a sound lab, it is a destination for only the best audio engineers and sound technicians in the country. It is the place where they can hunker down create the audio's future with total focus—a place where we cultivate their talents and ensure new ideas have a home and a platform to continue perfecting our definition of precision sound.
