Our first experience with Penaudio a decade or so ago was at a small hifi show at a shop in the North of the Netherlands, Rinsma HiFi in Lippenhuizen, Friesland. A part of the world that is not to be missed if you like the countryside and and warm welcoming people. Saying that, we were there for some serious high fidelity. Our good friend Heer Rinsma, the proprietor has built a shop around his almost obsessive desire for the best sound quality and his life long quest to find the best audio reproduction equipment to fill it. As our Sonneteer hifi separates were the year before, Penaudio were on trial at this year’s show. Over four days a very critical Friesan crowd, sat, listened and fell in love with the Sound. If I recall correctly, back then the product range comprised mainly of the Charisma stand mounting loudspeaker, the Original Rebel and the Chara subwoofer. All were finished in the famously Finish layered plywood. Very beautiful to the eye and very much so too to the ears.
Scan the Penaudio website and the message is clear. Sami Penttilä, the founder and main designer is a lover of natural sound. As we do here at Sonneteer towers Penaudio use nature as the reference.

Since that first encounter, we at Sonneteer and Penaudio have enjoyed years a of friendly and professional cooperation. The synergy of of our products were coincidence to start off with. As the ranges grow and evolve we design with each other’s products in mind as well as our living spaces. Oh, and some good Vodka in the cupboard.

In the hey day of vinyl records and hifi it was expected to find an input marked ‘Phono’ on the back of a hifi or music centre. This would usually be flanked by such inputs as Aux, Tape, Tuner and later on CD. If you had a record player then it could only be connected [...]

Here at Sonneteer we have noted how there has been a trend of designing amplifiers or hifi components that look a little like chic kitchen appliances. More particularly, flat, food weighing scales. Similar to the ones Salter have made their mark with. We are not overly surprised as kitchen gadgets and cookers etc. have been [...]
