WE ARE ESOTERIC PRO AUDIO

aboutus

The name of the company Esoteric Pro Audio describes the ambition of the people working within it: the project to apply the experience of Home Hi-Fi to the design of professional audio systems. We adopt techniques that are not always conventional, such as the use of small components, therefore with very light moving mass, to have a very high damping factor (a lower weight has a lower inertia). Our electronics are Hi-Fi Grade quality, and this is one of the factors that allows our systems to reproduce the harmonics of the instruments as faithfully as possible, keeping their timbre unaltered. The particularity of the constructive characteristics that we adopt, allows to obtain a very fast, dynamic and transparent system.

One of the results is the separation between the timbres, which allows you to have in the live an incredibly balanced and transparent mix, or to focus the attention on a single instrument, even in very complex musical situations. Esoteric Pro Audio, with years of research and experimentation, has created sound systems to satisfy its ambition. Our goal is now to bring and exhibit our products in the professional audio sector, to confront sound engineers from all over the world and let them forget the artificial sounds reproduced by the most common audio systems on the market. Sharing the research of the naturalness of the sounds of the instruments will be a unique experience.

THE TEAM

MIRKO MAROGNA

Owner

The great passion for music began at the age of 13 when Dad Severino bought him the first hi fi system.
During the early 90s Mirko meets Be Yamamura and he starts building the first home systems using valve amplifiers and loudspeakers with horn loading of considerable size, this has helped Mirko a lot to develop the design of the current live systems.
Mirko got to know in deep materials and focused on the importance of using superconductors, materials with high damping coefficients, woods, metals and graphites necessary to obtain products of the highest quality.
Based in Verona, Italy, Mirko is now the CEO at Esoteric Pro Audio and he takes care of fine-tuning home and live systems of the highest level.
