Acoustic Energy Ltd was founded in 1986 and is a very well-known and respected UK based loudspeaker company. Based in the beautiful Cotswold Hills in the West of England in their own 15,000 square foot facility, Acoustics Energy – ‘’AE’’ – was originally launched to satisfy the needs of the professional audio sector of the market, offering great accuracy, precise stereo imaging, dynamics, and transparency coupled with high power handling and linearity. Due to these product benefits, the AE1 acquired a global reputation with musicians, recording artists and studio engineers that it still enjoys to this day.
As the company and the product line developed, the now legendary AE1 won the British Hi-Fi Award for Best Speaker in 1991 and 1992, and acclaim for the Reference Series within the hi-fi press grew world-wide. Over time, the hi-fi and home theatre market has become the principle focus for the company.
Acoustic Energy hired AV EMEA in 2015 in advance of a planned management buyout and a return to British ownership in 2016. Our team has become an integral part of the AE Management team and has been responsible for a large (and still growing) increase in the company’s International sales, with new distributors in new markets regularly joining the AE Family. AV EMEA also assists with the company’s marketing, product launches, training and gives valuable market and product feedback to the management team.
The new management team in the UK has the company embarking on an aggressive product roll-out plan to add several exciting new product lines to the company’s existing award winning lines this year.
