Audience Appoints Eliott Nommensen as Lead Product Designer

San Marcos, CA, July 10, 2018Audience, a company dedicated to designing and manufacturing ultimate-performance audio/video equipment, today announced it has appointed Eliott Nommensen as Lead Product Designer. Nommensen will be a key contributor in creating new products for Audience and exploring opportunities to expand into new product categories for the company.

Eliott Nommensen has extensive experience in the high-end audio industry. He first became involved in audio in 1979 working at Absolute Audio, one of California’s premier high-end audio dealers. In 1994 he designed his first audio product, and subsequently produced the industry’s first digital stylus force gauge for phono cartridges. Before joining Audience he was head of product development at Synergistic Research.

“I am extremely excited to become part of the Audience family,” Nommensen said. “My design philosophy has always been one of ‘less is more,’ to most accurately preserve the musical content and faithfully render the artist’s and recording engineer’s intent and emotion.”

Nommensen has spent the last 17 years designing audio cables, powerline conditioners, isolation devices, room treatment products and other audio accessories, many of which can be found in ultimate-performance audio systems and top recording studios worldwide.

John McDonald, president of Audience, noted, “Elliot’s background, experience and passion for music makes him ideally suited to becoming part of the Audience team. His talents and expertise will be invaluable as our company moves forward in creating products that connect listeners more deeply to the music.”

Audience aR12-TSSOX Receives TAS 2018 Editors’ Choice Award

Audience adeptResponse aR12-TSSOX

To Greg Weaver’s ear, Audience’s new aR12-TSSOX power conditioner represents a substantial improvement over its predecessors, so much so that it would be fair to say that it borders on an order of magnitude advance. This is a world-class device, deserving your full attention. Give one a listen– perhaps the 6- or 12-socket variety –but be prepared to buy it. If you are anything like GW, there is no chance it will come out of your system once it is in place! GW, (268)

Audience Wins The ONE 2018, 2017, and 2015 Editors’ Choice Award from The Absolute Sound!



Audience The ONE
The ONE, as you might infer from its name, is a single full-range driver shoehorned into a small box. The driver itself is the same unit, the A3S, that Audience uses in its flagship $72,000 16+16 speaker. According to Audience, the A3S has exceptionally flat response, claimed to be +/-3db from 40Hz to 22kHz. Be that as it may, properly set up The ONE is the best desktop speaker reviewer Steven Stone has heard (after the Audience 1+1). SS, 236
