Lars Hansen had been the President of the Dahlquist Corporation. Dahlquist was known worldwide for its innovative loudspeaker designs.
Lars Hansen, had headed up the engineering and design of the entire (then current) model line up, including the new DQ 10 model. Lars Hansen's passion however was to utilize all of his wisdom and experience to design the very finest loudspeakers possible regardless of price. This was not the mandate of the Dahlquist Corporation. Lars chose to leave and follow his passion!
In 2003 Lars Hansen began to lay down all the foundations for his new company. This company would produce only the finest audio equipment possible. Every model would represent the best of the best. All of the latest scientific information would be incorporated. Materials would have to be invented to produce enclosures that would set new performance standards. Proprietary drivers using exotic high performance materials had to be designed and engineered. All of this would be manufactured in house!
Hansen Audio was born!
In the years since the beginning, Hansen Audio has indeed successfully set new standards on both the engineering side and more importantly on the performance side. Our enclosures have been called "Graceful", "Organic" and "Elegant". All of the enclosures incorporate the exclusive Hansen Composite Matrix material. The Hansen Audio enclosures have set a standard in being completely sonically invisible. Hansen Audio drivers incorporate the proprietary Sound Wave Deformation Prevention technology.
