Definitive Technology was founded in Maryland in 1990 by a sound obsessed veteran of the loudspeaker industry and a group of brilliant audio engineers on a mission. Quickly, we became the number one premium speaker brand in the United States. Soon, our offering expanded from a core home theater line to a full array of products designed for no-compromise sonic performance for every room and application. Over the years, the assortment has expanded to include Hi-Fi listening speakers, high performance subwoofers, architectural and built-in speakers, weatherproof outdoor sound, and most recently, streaming sound bars with HEOS Built-in and support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X.
We still design and engineer our speakers at our original Acoustic Research and Development (ARAD) facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, but today we’re part of a larger family: Masimo Consumer. With sister brands that include Bowers & Wilkins, Classe, Denon, Marantz and Polk Audio, our product and engineering teams span the globe and include the brightest, most passionate and inspired minds in performance and luxury audio. We share knowledge and ideas and collaborate on a vision to bring joy to the world through sound.
