As a late minute addition to the program Bruno Putzeys, CTO of Kii Audio along with Thomas Jansen from Kii will be appearing at the Kii Audio Event at Red Bull Studios. They will be explaining the technology behind the Kii Three Professional Studio monitors.
With the invention of UcD and Ncore, Bruno Putzeys is probably single-handedly responsible for turning class-D amplification into the preferred way of building high-end audio amplifiers. His designs are displacing class A and valve amplifiers in all the niches they held until now and are making truly audiophile performance available in very compact, energy-efficient products.
In 2010 he delivered a shot across the bow of high-end loudspeaker design. The Grimm Audio LS1 was immediately hailed by several reviewers as the best hi-fi speaker so far. With the foundation of Kii Audio in 2014 he has turned his full attention to loudspeakers with the intention to revolutionize them in the same way as he did amplifiers.
Music, recording studios and instruments have been the main obsession throughout all of Tom's life, while his formal education in architecture and design fueled a deeper interest in how people interact with and use audio gear, as well as how it´s design and features can improve this experience. In the last 10 years he has done architectural acoustic consulting and studio design, organized his own tradeshow for high end audio gear and finally joined forces with Chris Reichardt as product manager in his audio distribution company. Meeting Bruno and Bart during this time as product manager for their former works such as the LS1 made a deep impression and left him with the will to dedicate his work to their future ideas of audio innovations for the pro and hifi world with Kii Audio.
