Onkyo history reflects innovation at every stage. 1946 marked the establishment of Osaka Denki Onkyo K.K. (predecessor to Onkyo Corporation). The company's vision was to spread the joy and soothing qualities inherent in music to people anywhere. During the early phases of its corporate history, Onkyo grew as an innovator and fashioned itself into a force in audio, making the name Onkyo synonymous with sonic excellence and high-quality loudspeakers. In 1993, Onkyo became one of the first major corporate entities to radically transform its corporate management by following a "cash flow first" and "simple and speedy" philosophy. Concentrating on management reform allowed increased profitability for the entire Onkyo group. Our corporate slogan "Imaginative Sight & Sound" demonstrates the value we place on innovating features and aesthetics. As we move into the future, Onkyo's dedication for promoting a foresightful management, which is quick to react to change, remains strong.
