Ardán Audio is an Irish company that focuses on the design and sale of Audio Elevation Enhancement products to the professional, studio, home recording, home cinema, and other related markets. Audio Elevation? Yes, Ardán designs and manufactures the most innovative monitor support stands we have seen. Not only do they enable you to detach the speaker from other surfaces, but they also provide vibration isolation, rotation, and tilt “aiming.”
Ardán (pronounced Ar-dawn) is the Gaelic word for “platform,” “high place,” or “stage.” Its Elevation Pro EVP-M1 Speaker Stands were introduced in 2011 and have slowly been building a strong reputation among its users.
Ardán was founded by Brent Finlayson Smith and John Gallen, who stated, “Since mechanical vibration and surface coloration have a significant effect on the sonic performance heard out front, our starting point is the desire to enhance and elevate a user’s existing speaker investment in their own environment, so that they truly hear the underlying quality that is already there but not being fully exploited.”
Ardán Audio says they have now another 20 additional products in the works, which are all manufactured to high specifications in Italy and shipped from Dublin, Ireland.
