Acoustic Energy Limited was founded in 1987 and originally based in West London before relocating to their current facility in the Cotswolds. In 1988 the iconic AE1 monitor speaker was launched to satisfy the needs of the professional audio sector of the market; offering great accuracy, precise stereo imaging, dynamics, and transparency coupled with high power handling and linearity. With the massive success of this first model, Acoustic Energy have grown expansively over the last 20+ years to become a revered and well-recognised Hi-Fi manufacturer.
Since the company's relocation in 1995, AE has formed a strategic alliance with a large manufacturing and purchasing facility based in the Far East. This has allowed them to design and manufacture phenomenally good loudspeakers with a level of performance that belies their price.
