Danish Dantax A/S and Gamut Audio are delighted to confirm that Gamut is now part of the Dantax group of companies, joining fellow Danish high-end audio brands Raidho and Scansonic.
Gamut’s CEO and chief designer Benno Baun Meldgaard said, “This is excellent news for Gamut. To be an integral part of a wider ‘family’ of companies, all of which are wholeheartedly committed to high-end audio, gives Gamut a strong and stable foundation from which to move forward and build on our success to date.”
For almost half a century, Dantax A/S has been actively engaged in the design, development, manufacturing and sales of audio products. Since 1984 the company has been listed on the Copenhagen Stock exchange. As well as being an established brand in its own right, Dantax is equally the parent company of a number of globally renowned Danish audio brands. For ten years it owned ScanSpeak, the legendary creators of world-leading loudspeaker drive units. In the late 1970s it added Scansonic to its portfolio and then in 2009, Raidho, whose loudspeakers are widely considered to be among the finest developed and produced today. Now another award-winning high-end Danish audio brand, Gamut, joins the Dantax family.
As part of the move, Meldgaard has also been appointed as a member of Raidho’s R&D team in the role of chief designer and will work particularly closely with Dantax chief technical officer John Peter Jensen and Raidho chief engineer Peter Larsen.
“Over the past few weeks I’ve greatly enjoyed spending time meeting and working with the teams at Dantax and Raidho,” says Meldgaard. “I feel incredibly inspired by the prospect of sharing our knowledge, skills and resources. Looking forward, I’m excited to think about what we might achieve together.”
Meanwhile, Gamut’s growing legion of fans and customers can rest assured that Gamut will continue to operate as a distinct brand. Support and service to existing customers will of course remain fully in place as currently.
