|About Mark Levinson|
In the 1960's, as an aspiring jazz trumpet player, I became fascinated with recording and reproducing live performances of my teachers, friends, and great artists. I was fortunate to meet and play with many of them. I noticed that the sound coming from speakers did not really sound like or create the emotion of the live event. In 1972, I began my career in the design and manufacture of no-compromise audio equipment. Now, in 2010, I have had 50 years of experience in studying and playing music, and 40 years of learning about what creates emotion in music reproduction.
There are two things you can do with electrical energy turn it into sound or turn it into heat. High efficiency speakers need very low power to play loud, but have suffered from sonic limitations. Daniel Hertz SA has overcome these limitations. Now, for the first time, music lovers can have the audiophile's dream of natural sound, with the punch, body, deep bass and wide dynamic range of professional audio systems. Daniel Hertz speakers require only 1 Watt to produce 100dB of sound pressure level.
Today, the market is flooded with speakers that require hundreds or thousands of Watts and still cannot generate the dynamics of real music. The high end audio market has become a land of huge price tags without commensurate benefits in performance. Daniel Hertz offers a global solution.
