There’s a fine line between loving sound and being obsessed with it. Or so we’ve been told. Because when it comes to making things sound their absolute best, we have a hard time believing that “good enough” is good enough. Even greatness is not enough. Sound must be flawless. Perfect. Uncompromising.
Definitive Technology was founded in Maryland in 1990 by a sound-obsessed veteran of the loudspeaker industry and a group of brilliant audio engineers on a mission. Quickly, we became the number one premium speaker brand in the United States. Soon, our offering expanded from a core home theater line to a full array of products designed for no-compromise sonic performance for every room and application. Over the years, the assortment has expanded to include Hi-Fi listening speakers, high-performance subwoofers, architectural and built-in speakers, weatherproof outdoor sound, and most recently, streaming sound bars with HEOS Built-in and support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X.
We earned our award-winning reputation by crafting loudspeakers of the highest performance and quality standards. These loudspeakers provide an unmatched, signature sound, renowned globally for their big, immersive sound field, ultra-wide dynamic range, crystal clear highs and thunderous bass. In short, speakers that deliver thrilling experiences to music and movie lovers like you, wherever you live, work or play.
We still design and engineer our speakers at our original Acoustic Research and Development (ARAD) facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, but today we’re part of a larger family: Sound United. With sister brands that include Boston Acoustics, Bowers & Wilkins, Classe, Denon, Marantz and Polk Audio, our product and engineering teams span the globe and include the brightest, most passionate and inspired minds in performance and luxury audio. We share knowledge and ideas and collaborate on a vision to bring joy to the world through sound.
