oido audio

Our aim is to produce a loudspeaker that combines the state of the art in music reproduction with contemporary design and compactness

 

 

  • It must be big enough to accomodate speaker drivers that can easily produce realistic sound pressures and transients throughout the sound spectrum

 

  • It must be small enough, and eye-pleasing enough, to fit any modern living space

 

  • It must excel at all kinds of music

 

  • It must be possible to drive with low power amps, such as single ended triode tube ones - the first watt is the most important!

 

  • It must have a single driver producing the entire frequency range of the human voice - for optimal stereo imaging and depth

 

  • It must be physically time aligned - for minimal filter complexity and maximum transient impact

 

  • It must be fun! Why not enjoy both the esoteric music reproduction of a high-sensitivity, old-school, field coil wide range driver and the punch of 500 Watts straight into an 18 inch bass driver?

 

  • It must be attainable - we sell direct in order to keep the price as low as possible

 

 

The result is the oido 12 loudspeaker
