Acoustic Energy Limited was founded in 1987 and originally based in West London before relocating to its current 15,000 sq. ft. facility in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. Its 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 worldwide. The hi-fi market rapidly became an integral part of Acoustic Energy's growth and AE has grown from strength to strength around the world and now distributes to over 40 export markets, in addition to a strong multiple and independent distribution base within its domestic market. Since the company's relocation in 1995, AE has formed a strategic alliance with a large manufacturing and purchasing facility based in the Far East. This alliance has enabled AE to focus attention on further growth objectives, by targeting the more volume orientated entry-level and mid-range hi-fi and multi-channel home theatre markets, with the introduction of the '100' and 'Aegis' Series of loudspeakers. The immediate award winning success of these products has provided significant growth for AE, resulting in re-investment geared towards new product development and marketing plans that will continue to ensure new standards of product quality, value and performance are consistently achieved.
