1999 The worlds first range of electro-dynamic dipole loudspeakers

In the nineties, the dipole loudspeakers were electrostatic, magnetostatic or ribbon designs. Thus, the advantages of bipolar designing met the disadvantages of these technologies, such as high requirements for amplifiers, the big surface area of membranes and their difficult placement in the listening room. Crystal Audio was the first manufacturer to present a bipolar electrodynamic design - even among the largest loudspeaker companies in the world. The three models from the original dipole series Grand Dipole, Dipole 6 and Dipole 4 ideally combined all the benefits of the top electrodynamic loudspeakers with the benefits of the dipole panels, while having none of the handicaps.

1998 A passion for music and an in-depth knowledge of the science of sound led to the formation of Crystal Audio

To venture into a market dominated by big manufacturers takes enthusiasm and devotion.

Since then, introducing new technologies and radical manufacturing techniques has remained a prime factor in Crystal Audios success. Crystal Audio has one important advantage over other manufacturers: besides immense technical knowledge it has a real and profound love for "good sound" and, naturally, a passion for music. Thats why Crystal Audios creations are unique
