Whether our products are playing a rare jazz recording from the 60’s or a modern thriller soundtrack rendered in a high-tech digital mastering studio - the mission remains the same - “Primum Non Nocere”—Above All, Do No Harm! This was the philosophy of the original Mondial founders and it remains our philosophy at Indy Audio Labs today. Our audio designs are intended to deliver the audio program to you, the listener, the way it was originally recorded and intended to be heard, with life-like detail and authoritative power.
As always, this requires wise component selection, significant testing and, we believe, is accomplished well through engineering led here in the USA. To achieve our goals we employ class A circuitry wherever necessary, use only high-performance integrated circuits and semiconductors, avoiding the common varieties used in general consumer appliances, and select only the most reliable, transparent, passive components available. The construction of our products is second-to-none and is accompanied by multiple stages of rigorous quality and reliability testing.
This same philosophy applies to our video delivery technologies. HD video places unprecedented demands on video circuitry that so-called “high-end companies” often are simply not capable of meeting with their own designs. Our engineering team has had years of experience in developing HD video products and deliver the benefits to you so that you can appreciate all the nuances and colors in your Blu-Ray, internet, gaming, or broadcast HD video sources. We partner with industry-leaders in video processor design and video software.
It takes great care to successfully integrate bleeding-edge digital technologies into the highest-performance AV equipment. Some of our competitors avoid this task altogether, insisting that digital and analog circuits must be separated as if digital were “a fad” that high-end products should avoid. For us, digital technologies are the way modern media originates. To preserve the bitstream as accurately as possible throughout the signal chain allows us the unprecedented opportunity of effectively transporting the listener back to the original analog performance with nearly imperceptible degradation. In addition to our in-house talent in digital signal processing, we work closely with some of the best technology partners in the industry to deliver surround decoding, signal routing, video connectivity and control that is best-in-it’s-class.
