Gayle Sanders Returns with Launch of New Company at AXPONA
Gayle Sanders, cofounder of MartinLogan and one of the industry’s most celebrated speaker designers, turns a new page in his prestigious career with the introduction of his new company, Gayle Sanders Eikon. The world premiere of his new digital active loudspeaker system, featuring the Image1 and Eikontrol, will take place in Rooms 742 and 744 at the 2018 AXPONA Show.
Some time after Gayle Sanders entered “retirement,” he once again picked up his paper and pen and began tinkering with ideas. “I found myself missing our industry—the people, the excitement, the creative process of designing—it pulled me back,” Sanders said. “I still love learning about new technologies, diving into research, and exploring the possibilities of putting it all together.”
After examining several evolving digital technologies, Sanders saw an opportunity to return to the market with a new approach that would be a complete departure from his previous electrostatic loudspeaker designs. He began to explore the improvements in digital signal processing (DSP) and new amplifier technology, and opportunities to provide a complete package for discerning customers who desire a simple approach to high performance.
