The story of the McIntosh brand of distinguished home audio systems dates back to 1949. The brand has since been synonymous with delivering impeccable experiences in music and film. Specialising in two-channel stereo sound systems and multi-channel home theatres complete with surround sound, McIntosh is a brand that offers the ultimate home audio entertainment experience for the discerning listener.
All of the iconic McIntosh home audio systems are designed and hand-built from its Binghamton headquarters in New York, U.S. McIntosh has powered some of the most iconic periods in pop culture and music history. Most notably, President Lyndon Johnson’s inauguration speech relayed to Woodstock via the infamous Grateful Dead “Wall of Sound”.
Solution Audio is a Swiss-owned company that specialises in the design and production of premium audio systems, inspired by Cyrill Hammer and Roland Manz; both of whom are enthusiastic about state-of-the-art audio systems. Inspired by a string of leading amplifiers built by manufacturers in the Far East and North America, Solution Audio has sought to push the boundaries further to create new benchmarks for audio performance.
With most Solution Audio products combining stunning sonic qualities with timeless, elegant aesthetics, it’s safe to say that messrs Hammer and Manz have successfully achieved their ambitions.
Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries (DALI) is a long-standing Danish manufacturer of award-winning sound systems. Established by Peter Lyngdorf in 1983, it quickly grew to become one of the most popular brands within the Scandinavian Hi-Fi community. The brand’s growth plans were rather more ambitious than this however, and it has since pushed its products in over 65 countries worldwide.
The DALI brand was put well and truly on the map in 1996 following the launch of its MegaLine series of high-end loudspeakers. This product became a flagship for the brand, setting a new benchmark for everything that is possible in terms of audio and aesthetic qualities.
Technical Audio Devices (TAD) is another brand that DB HIFI is proud to specify. TAD speakers and audio components are increasingly hand-picked for their high-dimensional sound imaging and sound-field immersion in neat, compact designs. TAD Labs originated as a one-off research and development project at Pioneer, with a remit to build studio-quality loudspeakers for home entertainment.
Since then, TAD has become an incorporated company in its own right, underpinned by the appointment of world-renowned loudspeaker designer, Andrew Jones at the TAD Labs helm. Jones’ Model One speaker helped put the TAD Labs brand firmly on the map. However, it was the later Reference One loudspeaker that is still considered one of the greatest speakers of all time today by audiophiles.

Precision engineering, innovative design, and visual aesthetics are embodied in the products from AMG (Analog Manufaktur Germany).

Pink Faun has become a stable brand always searching for new ideas, investigating new techniques, and offering excellent customer support. We make all our products by hand and design with only one thing in mind: No Sound, Just Music.
When developing our streaming products, we keep in mind that the principle ‘digital’ is non-existent. Digital is merely an analog signal interpreted as a 1 and a 0. Important to note is that Pink Faun works from the principle: if you add nothing, you do not have to filter out anything.
