A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1973, Walter Becker of Steely Dan commissioned M&K Sound to design a studio reference subwoofer and monitoring system for the Pretzel Logic LP mixing sessions. The result was the world’s first balanced dual-drive subwoofer. Pretzel Logic went on to become a million-selling top ten hit and one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
For the past 40 years, our philosophy has been that the only truly worthwhile listening experience is one that transports you to the site of the original acoustic event. That can only occur with absolutely minimal loss, addition or distortion, which is why our speakers are designed as a conduit to allow you to hear exactly what the performers and recording engineers heard — no more and no less.
Complete History of M&K Sound
Our company is founded equally on professional recording and high-end home entertainment. As a result, the basis for all M&K Sound design work has always been the accurate and realistic reproduction of the original acoustic event within its intended acoustical space. That sound could be anything from a human voice or a musical instrument to an explosion or a gentle breeze caressing the leaves of a tree. Naturally, this must include the ambience of the space in which the source was recorded. Our commitment to this high standard has led to the development of loudspeakers that deliver exceptional sound.
Because our emphasis has always been exclusively on accurate reproduction that maintains the full integrity of the original recorded signal, M&K Sound has developed a fiercely loyal following both among professional users and music and home cinema enthusiasts. We are a dedicated band of audiophiles and music lovers with a passion for the art and science of high-quality sound reproduction. With staff on three continents, M&K Sound represents a serious investment in and commitment to research and development and quality assurance.
