Oral History Information
Company NameAdam Audio
Klaus Heinz, the CEO of ADAM Audio, grew up with a strong interest in engineering and speaker technology. In 1999, he teamed with Roland Stenz and established ADAM Audio in Berlin. The company has gained a strong reputation for products based on the development of the ART (Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter by Klaus which is based on the 1960's invention of the Air Motion Transformer by Oskar Heil, who was largely responsible for the company’s founding. This newly developed tweeter design became the embodiment of a highly defined and authentic sound that is among the most defining development of ADAM's designs today.
