Burkhardt Is Back

The first press conference of CEDIA Expo 2014 has occurred. It was anchored by Jeremy Burkhardt. After spending two years away from the industry “he loves” JB is back with a new speaker company, Origin Acoustics.
The company has ambitious goals, and slogans. They are rolling out over 100 products at this year’s CEDIA Expo. That right there is enough to give them a second look. According to Burkhardt, the team has been working on this for over a year and a half. So, I guess that would be enough time to put together that many products. Still, starting up a company and debuting with a hundred plus products is pretty ambitious.
They also have a rather gutsy tag line; “Introducing our competitor’s products today”. This goes back to the name and stance Origin is taking. Burkhardt isn’t the only one on the team. Their engineering and creative team have been in the business for over 40 years. Ed Hasse and Ken Humphreys have been creating unique speaker designs since the 70’s. So, they like to say they are the “Origin” of custom installation speakers.
Love them, or hate them, this team has made an impact on the home speaker market over the last few years. Now that they are back in the business, it will be interesting to see where they land.
