Founder and President

Sound Lab has been in business since 1978. The founders of the company, Dr. Roger West and Dr. Dale Ream, shared a belief that electrostatic transduction was potentially the optimum technology for loudspeakers. During this time the company has successfully addressed the major problems of electrostatic loudspeaker technology and has developed a series of speakers each of which is designed to fulfill a specific purpose. The basic philosophy of Sound Lab is to provide the finest products possible at each of the price points selected. Not only are the products optimum acoustical machines, but they are beautiful pieces of matched furniture that will grace any decor.

Categorically, Sound Lab is a research and development organization since it has elected to develop only truly state-of-the-art products. This means that the technology base of the company necessarily continues to grow, and this is the case. A strong patent and trademark base has resulted from this continued effort. From the perspective of the customer, however, this could cause some uneasiness since a particular product could possibly become obsolete if the technology level passes it by. To allay this fear, we have a policy that any product we manufacture can be brought up to the present technical level at a reasonable cost.

Our product is meticulously hand-crafted unit by unit. Each operation is carefully accomplished and checked to make certain that it is correct. Batch processing and mass production techniques would simply not ensure the individual quality of each item that we make. Our success is built on the hard work and dedication of our staff.
