In 18th century Vienna, Joseph Brodmann earned widespread acclaim for excellence in piano making and in furthering the development of piano soundboards. Among the friends and customers of the Brodmann house were Ludwig van Beethoven and Carl Maria von Weber.
Joseph Brodmann's name is still the driving force behind Brodmann Acoustic's commitment to excellence in both their loudspeaker and piano ranges. The choice of quality raw materials, the masterly workmanship, language of design, and tonal philosophy, have all grown out of Brodmann Acoustic's conscious loyalty to their place in time. Brodmann pride themselves as internationally successful makers of musical instruments and speaker systems. With branches in Hong Kong and the USA, they have a network of more than 200 choice retailers.
Famed acoustic engineer and Brodmann speaker designer Hans Deutsch believes that "speakers need to breathe like instruments to reproduce life-like sound."
Conventional speakers use filters and dampeners to correct distortion and unwanted resonance from inside and outside the cabinet. Hans Deutsch´s designs minimise distortion in the first place. He carefully developed an extremely stiff speaker cabinet with custom designed drivers to specifically preclude additional dampening. This frees the drivers to follow the electrical signal without any need for correction. Controlled, resonating, acoustic soundboards complete the equation to create three-dimensional, true-to-life sound.
