Alphason Design web site (December 2006): Alphason Designs Limited was formed in 1985, Lancashire, England. UK. Initially Alphason Designs produced a range of specialist audio products mainly consisting of turntables, turntable tonearms and loudspeakers. Designed to satisfy the requirements of the most discerning audiophile, these products soon created a strong following for the company amongst audio specialists. This following culminated in the launch of the 'Symphony' turntable which received glowing acclaim in the international press. The 'Symphony' turntable still enjoys that acclaim and has achieved almost cult status amongst the audio fraternity. Similarly the HR-100S tonearm was considered to be one of the worlds' finest.
Alphason Designs' considerable experience in designing high performance audiophile products made the company realise there was a glaring need for quality audio furniture designed to ensure that the audio system is allowed to perform to its maximum potential.
To perform at its best, hi-fi requires a support system that is stable and free of external vibrations. Meeting this requirement Alphason Designs launched a new concept range of audio furniture and loudspeaker stands, manufactured to a standard hitherto unavailable. Its design was modern, functional and aesthetically pleasing. Its "performance" was stunning.
Continuing on the success of the original hi-fi range, Alphason Designs then developed 'Akros', additional products designed to meet the requirements of 'lifestyle' audio-visual systems. The design criteria of the original audiophile products were applied to this new range, through the use of the unique tension rod structure and careful choice of materials, enabling the benefits of Alphason's design disciplines to be available to a wider audience. The name 'Akros' was chosen from the Greek word meaning, extreme and topmost.
In line with the company policy of continuous improvement several new ranges of products have recently been introduced. The 'A Series' is designed for the discerning audiophile to improve the performance of any equipment it supports. The 'AD Series' has polished 'D' shaped safety glass shelving providing a practical solution for the hi-fi & vision enthusiast. The aesthetics of these models are further enhanced by the options of coloured glass shelves and striking upright finishes to complement equipment design in any modern domestic environment.
In addition there is Alphason's 'Essentials' range which offers complementary products to "value for money" electronics. Not being a company that "rests on its laurels" the very latest introduction is the 'Aragon' range, providing a firm foundation for all equipment in a number of finishes.
Not surprisingly, independent and national retailers in the consumer electronics industry sell Alphason Designs' products throughout the UK. An increasing network of worldwide distributors also serves many countries, growing year by year.
With the company's close contact with specialist retailers and equipment manufacturers, the Alphason design team is always working on new and innovative ideas. As equipment manufacturers develop audio and visual products to set new horizons in sound and vision, Alphason Designs is developing new support systems to optimise their performance. The 'Aragon series' is the latest innovative range of equipment supports.
Many of these leading consumer electronics manufacturers use Alphason products to display their equipment at exhibitions, which is an endorsement in itself. As further confidence in the audio visual furniture, several of these companies have their own branded supports specifically manufactured by Alphason Designs.
Alphason Designs is dedicated to creating quality products, enhancing the sound and supporting the vision by designing the highest performance support for the equipment to operate on or in.
