“Artisanal products and reclaimed wood are extremely popular. They appeal to environmentally aware consumers who prioritize quality and unique design,” says award-winning audio designer and Barn Audio Labs owner Mark Mason. “No one else offers top-end sound combined with reclaimed wood. We sourced the materials and local partners to really do this right, and are taking a rigorous, scientific approach to our product design.”
Reclaimed Wood Speaker Design
The custom speaker cabinets showcase the wood’s unique character. Each batch of speakers is named after the source, such as the “Stouffville” batch, made from hemlock from an early 20th-Century barn in Stouffville, Ontario. Boards are hand-selected to exacting standards based on character, color, and texture, then individually planed to optimal thickness, removing enough weathered material to ensure the board is solid while leaving as much patina as possible for a unique, beautiful finish on every speaker.
Engineered by Mason himself based on his years of experience in the consumer electronics hi-fi audio industry, Barn Audio Labs speakers are extensively tested and sonically optimized. They feature a woofer with a laminate wood pulp cone and rubber surround, along with a Vifa soft-dome tweeter, which combine to produce high-performance sound.
“The design is what you would find in expensive, top-of-the-line brands,” says Mason. “The speakers look very unique, but the sound is equally impressive.”
Great paired with vinyl or digital music, Barn Audio Labs speakers are produced in limited quantities, and are available for sale online at www.barnaudiolabs.com.
