MI: What was your first experience with high- end audio and how you got into the business?
Since I was a child, I have always been surrounded by the Manger Sound Transducers, influenced by the Manger credo and dedication to achieve perfect sound reproduction. Those days I didn’t know it was high end, but it was always about getting the best sound. After studying electrical engineering I decided to enter the family business and after 25 years I still know it was the right decision.
MI: How and when Manger Audio was formed?
Manger was started as an offshoot of our family’s radio, TV and music store. My father wanted to get better sound than at that time was possible from conventional loudspeakers, so in the late 60s he began looking into it. Manger officially began serial production of drivers in the late 80s. Two years ago we changed the name to Manger Audio when we completed our new product line and launched our website with new branding.
MI: Is there a person or company in audio business that inspired your venture?
I have watched my father as a little girl. He was my inspiration and the reason I continue to push the brand. I learned my passion for sound from him.
