Neunaber Audio designs products for the discerning musician, emphasizing high-fidelity sound and balancing simplicity with functionality.
We operate under the following guiding principles:
- The best solutions are simple and elegant.
- While music is art, audio is a science that is understood. It is not black magic.
- Digital processing is only a tool, like vacuum tubes or solid-state analog. It is how one uses the tool that makes the result sound good or bad.
How are we different?
We are not a mass-producer, nor do we see ourselves as boutique. We prefer to remain small and agile while manufacturing our products using modern machinery and automated assembly techniques, which—when properly implemented—are far more reliable than hand-built.
We pride ourselves in our intelligent, quality driven approach, utilizing the latest technologies and insight to produce gear that performs flawlessly, sounds incredible and lasts. We design for maximum value—using the best parts and practices, but only when it results in a noticeable improvement in sound, appearance, or longevity.
Coming from an engineering background, Brian Neunaber—the company’s founder—has grounded our mission in modern, highly technical excellence. Our products are the result of research, development and intentional sonic engineering. We are not mad scientists hoping for a happy accident... we are audio effects professionals creating precisely what our ears want to hear.
We pursue sonic perfection, even at the cost of breaking industry ‘norms’. Our products deliver practical and intriguing sounds to a diverse range of musicians—from those whose desire is to effortlessly plug-in and play to those who need a more versatile platform to sculpt their ultimate tone. We believe that making great products is the best marketing strategy, and we rely on happy customers to spread the word.
We continually look for new ways to improve. Life is change.
Music knows no race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or social status. We believe in the fair and equal treatment of all people.
We care about the environment.
Our products are lead-free and RoHS compliant: no lead is used in the components that make up the products, and no lead is used in the assembly process itself. As much as possible, we recycle and use recyclable materials. Whenever practical to do so, we use local suppliers.
