Handmade in the USA Since 2006
We are Blumenstein Audio, makers of single driver, high efficiency home audio speakers.
Each speaker is entirely handmade in our woodshop in Seattle, USA; cut, machined, glued, braced, trimmed, sanded, finished, branded, assembled, soldered, numbered, and signed. They are then brought to our listening room where they are enjoyed, tuned, and quality-controlled by ear and microphone before they are carefully packed and shipped.
We are the Woodworkers
The design of the Orca speakers began almost 6 years ago when Clark Blumenstein was consulting and apprenticing with Terry Cain of Cain & Cain Audio.
The refinement to the Orca's sound that has taken place since those days at Cain & Cain are inexorably linked to the daily quest to attain the highest quality of an entirely in house production process in tandem with daily listening tests.
Building sustainably with an environmental conscious is not a trend for us. Since 2006, we've used only natural, non-toxic materials in our woodshop.
The bamboo of a Blumenstein speaker is Soybond manufactured without any added formaldehyde and we finish the cabinets using a natural, food-grade linseed oil and beeswax.
