North Bay, Canada – Noam Sugarman is an entrepreneur from North Bay who decided to build a home audio startup that goes against the grain of modern audio brands. Unlike most home audio companies that stuff as many tech features as possible into their products, Noam believes that digital sprawl is actually interfering with our enjoyment of music and raises significant privacy concerns.
That’s why his company Dum Audio is taking things back to the roots. Noam’s goal is to wow customers with the sound quality and do away with unnecessary features, tech complexity and high price tags. Dum Audio’s premium home audio products are a perfect step up for music lovers that currently use headphones or wireless speakers. At launch time, the company’s range of products will include a turntable, an integrated amplifier, speakers and a subwoofer – each priced at $749 CAD / $699 USD with discounts when products are bundled. . Each component is designed to be simple to set up and operate, and offers a beautiful art deco design inspired by vintage hifi systems of the 70s and 80s. All the components are sonically matched with each other and customers will have a chance to order a full system, at a discounted price.
All Dum Audio components will be sold exclusively via its website www.dumaudio.com.
