The relationship between designing equipment and verifying its performance through measurement, and the effect on what we subsequently hear, and how this is perceived, is a complex one. So much so that many audiophiles and even designers claim that you can’t measure what you hear, and implore us to simply trust our ears. At OneAudio, we unequivocally reject this. There is no doubt that such measurement is difficult, requiring new levels of accuracy, novel approaches, and new insights in interpreting the data. But it is absolutely essential if we are to consistently design equipment capable of delivering the high levels of performance and musical enjoyment demanded by us at OneAudio.
While we dare to be different, we are not different just for the sake of it. Where an existing component or technology is capable of achieving our high standards, we will embrace it and perfect it. But we are also continually developing new approaches as well as challenging conventional so-called wisdom.
After all, popularity is not a criterion of excellence – but a road all too frequently travelled by those too comfortable to contemplate the considerable risks and challenges required for innovation.
Our Core Values
– Systems approach to design – perfect synergy for ultimate performance
– Secure investment
– Anti-obsolescence – upgradeability, scalability, expandable flexible architecture
– Invisible technology – ease of use and installation
– Subtle, understated appearance
OneAudio does not focus on audio components as such, but rather complete systems in which the components work together in perfect synergy. Only then can our high performance goals be achieved.
What is more, these systems are easy to install, providing consistent performance that is astounding for the size, without requiring critical installation nor being overly dependent on the acoustic environment.
Due to ease of use and low cost of ownership, we like to refer to this as “accessible audio”. We feel there is no point developing such a system if high cost, critical installation and complexity of operation would make the musical enjoyment it provides available to only a few.
Our music systems are designed to be invisible – neither adding nor detracting from the music – but rather getting out of its way. Similarly the appearance is sophisticated, refined, yet understated, in order to blend in with existing environments.
Users should never be made aware of the considerable technology that makes this possible. Paradoxically, the simpler the system is to use, and the less obvious it is, the more complex the technology required.
A OneAudio music system is designed to fill your living space and indeed your life with music, not equipment.
We hope that whichever OneAudio system you choose, it will become one of your most cherished and prized possessions, and continue to provide you with the highest levels of musical appreciation and enjoyment for many years to come.
