Why I started Wren Sound Systems
I founded Wren Sound Systems to earn a living while having fun building great audio products for the way people live and listen to music today. Big, complicated component systems are out; smaller, simpler systems are in. And the way we get our music is rapidly evolving from CDs and MP3 players to connected devices like smartphones and tablets.
These mobile internet devices let us to access the universe of music from wherever we are. It’s a stunning transformation in convenience, portability, and access to content. At Wren, we want to build sound systems for this new world of music – and we want them to offer the power of great sound reduction without the bulk, complexity and wires that have traditionally come with exceptional home audio.
We’re offering a genuine alternative; a middle ground between bulky component systems on one hand and tinny plastic boxes on the other.
I’ve spent 35 years in the audio business, including 22 with Harman International as a senior manager in numerous product categories. I’ve been on the forefront of some of the most exciting advances in consumer sound system technology. My career has spanned the years from LPs and 8-tracks to Pandora and Spotify, but one thing has remained constant: Good sound immerses us in music, washes our daily troubles away, energizes us and reminds us what we love about life. Great sound systems take great music to another level.
But as it’s become easier to access great music, great sound systems seem to have become harder to come by. At Wren, we want to help change that. That’s why we’re offering a genuine alternative; a middle ground between bulky component systems on one hand and tinny plastic boxes on the other.
I’ve spent my life introducing music lovers to the clarity and impact of great sound. Now, Wren’s team of industry veterans and I are distilling decades of audio experience into a single line of products. We’re combining real materials, old-school craftsmanship and cutting-edge electronic and acoustic components to create wireless systems we hope will make truly moving audio relevant and accessible in a new age of music.
