In 2017 we presented 8 new speaker models and the international press gave us 10 great reviews. We arranged vinyl fairs, mini-concerts, lectures on music and much more.
In 2018, our customers will be among the first in the world to own 100% digital wireless speakers. Read about the amazing news in the end of this post.
Here’s our 2017.

Vinyl fairs with live music at our factory
Our vinyl fairs has almost become a cultural event in Roskilde. The warehouse is transformed into a marketplace with hundreds of guests, 10,000s of vinyl records and people having a good time.
People hear live music (this time with Julie Ellinor) and author Jan Poulsen keeps his beloved lectures on music. This time he talked about punk that celebrated its 40th anniversary.
We went searching for the best upcoming band in Denmark
We want to support upcoming bands that care about sound quality. So together with our 14,900 blog readers, we went looking for Denmark’s best upcoming band. We wanted to give them our Sound Award.
Created for people who love great sound, but not big speakers
A lot of music lovers have a problem because small loudspeakers are not good enough for them…. while large speakers take up too much space living room. What should they buy?
The answer is: The new SA saxo 40, a small floor speaker with surprisingly big sound.
New speaker Specially Recommended by the press
The new SA saxo 50 had not been on the market long before the press gave it their recommendation with the words: “Balanced and dynamic sound with high air guitar factor”.
“Easy to find space for and suitable for all types of music” . Read the test
School classes take lessons at our factory
When we are not producing loudspeakers, we have school classes that take lessons at our factory.
This is done in collaboration with the local public school and the concept is called Open School.
The children experience that their knowledge of cooperation, mathematics and language have a purpose in the real world and that knowledge has value.
In this way, we hope that the children find it even more important to go to school.
Luxury speaker impresses reviewers
“We don’t recall a pair of speakers which charmed us so completely from the moment we played music through them”, they said about our beautiful diamond, SA pandion 5.
In this Scandinavian test, they say:“At Jazz at the Pawnshop, the atmosphere of the Swedish jazz inn is so vibrant that you can smell the cigarettes and beer.”
We think that SA pandion 5 is the best compact speaker we have ever made.

Not all record players sound great. Choose with your ears
Vinyl is incredibly hyped. Many people buy a record player without hearing it first and it’s really a shame. Many record players do not sound very good at all.
During our 6th vinyl fair we had a well-attended presentation where Peter Sejersen from KT Radio played 3 record players, inviting the guests to hear the difference themselves.
No one doubted that record players are as important as loudspeakers: they must be compared with others before buying.
The new SA saxo 30. Great sound and simple design
People who are not listening to music very often should meet SA saxo 30. Music lovers praise this speaker for its ability to involve them in music.

181 test pilots help us develop the loudspeaker of the future
Our test pilots are a group of people that we take very seriously.
They are involved in our listening tests and we discuss product design with them. We use their input to make decisions about technology etc.
In 2017, we welcomed 43 new test pilots and we have used their valuable input throughout the year.
Real jewel in Spitzenklasse
SA mantra 5 is an incredibly well-built compact speaker that has inherited its technologies from the precious SA pandion 2.
Stereoplay, the German test magazine, has looked at it and placed it in the Spitzenklasse. We are incredibly happy for that.

The saxo chameleon. Use SA saxo 10 as the center speaker in your very own home cinema or use it in your music system because you like energetic and great sound. SA saxo 10 performs equally well for both.

His lectures are stardust. Jan Poulsen has met David Bowie, traveled with Dizzy Mizz Lizzy and knows many of the stars in music.
In 2017 he held two lectures at the speaker factory, and opened fascinating stories from the world of music.
New 380 Watts amplifier in subwoofer
SE200 was upgraded in 2017 with our brand new 380 Watts amplifier. And what a change! We are among the few who test our products on real people (our test pilots).
Their effort will be heard clearly when it comes to the precision of the sound. Not many subwoofers that can follow SE200 when it unfolds.
Two speakers. That’ s all
It is the music system of the future.
In 2018, we present a speaker family called SA legend silverback, which are some of the world’s first true 100% digital wireless speakers.
We have moved the technology into the speakers and upgraded and digitized it all, so the music system only consists of two wireless active speakers.
No equipment, no buttons, no wires and no hassle. Only crystal clear sound like you’ve never heard it before.
