The new Alta Aphrodite at Axpona


About Our Founder, Company & Unique Process

Representing over 30 years of designing and building audiophile-grade speakers, Alta Audio products consistently provide exceptional reproduction of live and in-studio recordings. Alta Audio loudspeakers are painstakingly refined to reproduce the realism, balance and dimensionality of both live and studio recordings, with a design aesthetic that enhances any room’s décor.

Alta Audio Founder and President, Michael Levy helped bring CD, DVD, HDTV and Surround Sound technologies to market. Alta Audio was born out of Mr. Levy’s regular meetings with close friends who happen to be among the most respected producers, DJs and journalists covering high-end audio. As a group, it was common to bemoan the lack of an audiophile-grade speaker that conveyed the sense of sitting 10th row center in an acoustically sound concert hall, or dead center in an old school jazz club.

Mr. Levy committed himself to designing a speaker that replicates the performing artist’s vision. To do so, he and his friends spent countless nights at some of New York City’s finest performance spaces, enjoying music but also paying close attention to the voicing of live music. Afterwards, they compared notes that ultimately led to an intentionally limited series of loudspeakers that—when coupled with comparable electronics and well-recorded music—conveys the full sonic and emotional experience of a live performance.
