STEENSSEN products are built solidly on my three decades of designing loudspeakers and hifi electronics. My design company - DNgroup have designed series after series of speakers for Dynaudio, DALI, Scansound Podspeakers, Coin Audio, JS Speakers in Asian - and through them to Sony, and so on. However many speaker systems have traditionally been separate from television. Stereo has been the main way forward and still is for the nerds. STEENSSEN products start at a different pl
Listening is the very essence of what we do. If you think about it, a good loudspeaker is not about just producing sounds, its about how we listen to it. At STEENSSEN we have also been listening to the people who have bought our products. And to be honest, no amount of market research could give the super feedback and inspiration that we have received. So with a nod of thanks, its worth noting who listens to AIR. What we found was a bit unexpected. Mostly people chose AIR bec
The shape of a tv screen now is more or less just like a sheet of black glass. It has length and height, but the thickness now is down to just a few millimetres. Actually is a most elegant product. Starting from about now with 8K screens, the sharpness and definition on the screen is getting very close to photographic quality. You remember when photographs used to be on paper? The slimline shape of the tv is also its weakness. A sheet of glass doesn't sound good. While HBO, V
On the 8th August 1969 the BEATLES released their ABBEY ROAD album. The cover showed the group crossing the road outside the Abbey Road recording studios in London. It was in fact the last album made by the group together so it marked the end of a revolutionary era of change and originality in music. I bought the LP when it was released in 1969. At the time I was well into studying architecture and design. It is still in my collection of great music, 50 years on. And it can s
If you want to hear this wonderful music as Johann Sebastian Bach intended then you need to hear it on an AIR from STEENSSEN. Bach originally composed his famous "air" as the second movement of a larger piece - his "Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068". This second part was to be played only by the violins. Later, in the 1800's, a musician called August Wilhelmj rearranged the second movement. On the score he wrote "auf der G-Saite" (on the G string) for the solo violin, which g
If you live in a temperate climate like Europe, where STEENSSEN comes from, then you know the tricks that nature plays at this time of year. After the warmth and comfort of summer, the weather gets colder, the days get darker and the rain pours in from the west. At this moment, nature seems to compensate with a smile. All around, the trees and bushes change from a tired dark green to a blaze of colour. Yellow, gold, orange and deep red fill the cities and landscape with a kal
While everything seems to be getting more and more digital, it is a wonderful paradox that more LP's are being produced than ever before. Somehow the qualities of tone and the colour of the music from the older technology of the LP era is really appealing. But the big question is how do you connect your LP turntable to the technology of today. The perfect answer is the latest sound centres like STEENSSEN ACTION. Plug in your turntable to the AUX connectors and you are flying.
