“To say we have revolutionized the way people listen to music is a huge claim, but I do believe we are setting the standard when it comes to single-unit hi-fi stereos that integrate seamlessly into the home. Geneva was the first hi-fi company to embrace how people listen to digital music over a decade ago, when we released a serious hi-fi system with an iPod dock. Most other iPod docks and Bluetooth®-enabled systems were just convenient gadgets at the time – no one was taking high-quality sound seriously.
We believe that serious sound quality should be available to everyone, whether streaming music or tuning into the radio. Unfortunately, many young people today don’t know what it is to have an incredible listening experience when using a serious hi-fi system. We’re here to change that.“
Jan-Erik Lundberg, CEO Geneva Lab
Based in Switzerland, Geneva Lab adds simplicity to sophisticated electronic products. Experts from a range of industries – including industrial design, fashion, and technology – hold our creations in high regard for their distinct balance of performance, simplicity, style, and sustainability.
Over a decade ago, we took the home audio market by storm. Geneva Sound Systems were the first high-end, two-speaker stereo systems to be built into single cabinets. Each system was made from high-quality materials and finished to an immaculate standard. Patented technologies enhanced the stereo field, which was a huge leap for the home listening experience at the time: industry insiders long said that high-quality stereo sound was unachieved in a single unit, but we proved it was possible. WIRED magazine crowned Geneva Sound Systems the “Steinway” of the audio world, with other systems merely toy pianos. It was a world first.
Legendary manufacturers have since followed our pioneering approach, but none have matched the simplicity and sophistication of our method. Revered for their rich heritage, incredible sound and striking look, the Geneva Sound Systems of today grace leading fashion stores worldwide.
This passion for innovation, design and ease-of-use pushes our dedicated development team forward every single day. From our all-in-one hi-fi systems to our elegant portable DAB+/FM/Bluetooth® speakers, we aim to create products that are a joy to use, a pleasure to live with, and that give music lovers around the world incredible sound quality without compromise.
Although the products looks very low tech and with a simple user interfaces, the inside contains the latest technology available. To place a 600W amplifier, a CD slot loader and two large sub-woofers in a single wood cabinet is hugely challenging. Heat and vibration are major issues that had to be overcome. Geneva was one of the first companies using powerful digital amplifiers, as it was the only solution to the heat issues.
