Oral History Information
Anssi Hyvönen grew up in Finland where he developed a great love of recorded music and the gear to play it on. This gradually led to establishing Amphion as a hifi company in 1998. As an audiophile the playback side of the music chain was always familiar to him. To understand the whole recording – playback chain, he started learning about the role of loudspeakers in audio engineering. As his interest and knowledge in loudspeakers grew, Anssi and his team outlined ideas for improving the existing products. 2014 Amphion started offering a series of power amplifiers and loudspeakers to the pro industry. Anssi attended his first NAMM show in 2014 and had a display in the Arena next to the smoke machines. Anssi is proud of the products he offers and enjoys being part of the music industry - it is like family to him.
