Audio Passion was initially created to import and sell Jean Maurer products. More specifically the top of the line JM370E shown here.
Jean Maurer has been creating loudspeakers for more than 40 years but he is almost totally unknown on this side of the Atlantic. Even if you live in Europe, you have to go to Aubonne (the city where he builds his products in Switzerland) to listen and buy his products. He has no distribution network and does not sell through dealers.
The first speakers he made were designated with the suffix « A » and the Jean Maurer models are currently the « E » series. 5 iterations only in so many years. The objective is not to show off but to reach the best a home sound system can be. He creates, develops, builds and sells the speakers in his own facilities in Aubonne. Switzerland. More than 90% of the speaker is made on site. See the Jean Maurer Web site "Nos infrastructures" for pictures and details
The top of the line model is the JM 370 E. This is the model imported to North America by Audio Passion as a result of our discussions with Jean Maurer. More than 1000 JM370E have been sold to date. An exceptional product.
Also important are the HP cables. Jean Maurer has a model that is fabricated for him. Audio Passion makes this cable available for each JM370E sold.
Audio Passion is very happy to represent this Dorset, UK, manufacturer. A new company dedicated to phono stages, nothing else. And these are, in our view, exceptional values. Their philosophy is "Keep it simple" and as a reviewer indicated : "They certainly punch far above their price point".
