Music can be soothing, exciting, exhilarating. It can move our hearts and enrich our lives, which is the goal the people at Accuphase seek through audio technology. Accuphase equipment is not subject to the whims of market fashion since they are made, above all, to achieve true high fidelity sound reproduction. This is the foremost reason why they have enjoyed long-run production. The name ACCUPHASE was adapted by taking the prefix ACCU from the word "accurate", and combining it with PHASE which is a most important factor in audio technology.....it is a very fitting brand name to describe products that fully portray this and other important characteristics, which penetrate the innermost depth of audio technology.
