It is exponentially more difficult to design a great sounding budget product than a state of the art contender.
When we're shooting for the moon the budget's not a consideration. We're not constrained by anything other than skill and technology.
But when an economic hard line in the sand is drawn now the game gets intense (at least for a company like us).
We don't compromise sound quality. Ever.
Given a cost challenge, like Sprout or the upcoming Sprout loudspeaker, we set an economic challenge to be met. It is understood by every person on the design team that its performance level is unquestioned.
Our criteria are simple. It's something we would be happy using at home or it isn't.
When the sky's the limit it's easy to fly.
