A.A.D. American Acoustic Development LLC
It' s the embodiment of many years of musical learning and the passionate pursuit of engineering excellence by Phil Jones, AAD' s founder and technical director.
In fact, Phil is one of the few people in the electronics industry who' s never lost touch with music and musicians. AAD' s sister company, Phil Jones Bass , supplies high performance products for professional bass players throughout the world.
But what' s AAD' s mission? Simply put, AAD brings that same sensitivity and engineering knowledge to everyone interested in extraordinary sound quality.
AAD makes no distinction between audiophiles and movie aficionados. Both want and deserve the best aural reproduction possible. And, as you' ll soon see on this web site, AAD products deliver.
The "nearfield monitor" is an indispensable tool for recording artists, engineers, and audiophiles alike. Used to evaluate sound quality all the way from initial sessions in a recording studio through sometimes-extensive post-production editing and "tweaking," these monitors must be accurate and unimpeachable windows into the creative vision and how faithfully it is brought to an audience.
Perhaps no one in the industry brings more experience to the task of creating a nearfield monitor than Phil Jones, the designer of the famed Acoustic Energy AE-1, Boston Acoustic's Lynnfield 300 and 500 monitors, the critically-acclaimed Platinum Audio Solo and Reference One speakers, and AAD's own extraordinary 2001.
Now, he's raised the bar once more with the AAD 7001, a speaker that combines advanced metallurgy, driver design, enclosure technology, and an unprecedented attention to cosmetic detail. The result? The 7001 is already being hailed as the finest two-way monitor loudspeaker ever developed.
Over his long career, Phil has always followed a consistent design philosophy: A good speaker, like the creation of a master chef, provokes as much emotional response as intellectual appreciation. "You can' t reduce a great meal to a recipe book," he firmly believes, "any more than you can reduce a great speaker to a series of equations in a textbook. Great creations arise as much from passion as from knowledge."
It is this unique perspective, shaped by Phil' s never-ending work to increase the enjoyment of sound-conscious consumers and professional musicians alike, that gives AAD a crucial advantage in offering products that combine engineering excellence and intuitive understanding to produce speakers and electronics that are as emotionally gratifying as they are affordable.
Simply stated, AAD products will bring you closer to an artist' s soul than you thought possible. That' s one of the rewards of Phil' s passion. And just may be the fulfillment of yours.
