Almost 50 years ago, PHONAR began its history as a manufacturer of HI-FI Speakers in Germany. In the early years, he mainly produced HI-FI Speakers for international consumer electronics brands, still known today. Every day, up to 1,000 Speakers left the factory in Tarp, which at the time was still called Scan Akustik. In order not to depend on some important customers, the company's founder, Klaus Henningsen, decided in the early 1980s to create his own HI-FI Speakers brand with the name PHONAR.
In 1983, the idea was put into practice and gave rise to the independent company PHONAR Akustik GmbH, which set out to produce high-quality HI-FI Speakers, whose quality was strongly related to the sound of the original music. In the following years, PHONAR was able to continuously expand its position in the market and today, with around 100 specialist dealers, selected from all over Germany, installed a network of high quality distribution partners.
In 1998, Klaus Henningsen handed over the company management to his son, Kai Henningsen, who joined the company after studying business administration and has since managed it successfully.
To PHONAR, a family company with an international presence, 15 employees and an operating area of 5,000 m², exports are a crucial factor - participation in foreign sales of around 40 %. The products are exported to several European countries.
The PHONARSpeakers - Bookshelf Speakers , Floorstanding Speakers, Center Channel Speakers, WIFi (Wireless) Speakers and Subwoofers - repeatedly attract attention with their excellent results in reviews of High Fidelity magazines, being highly praised. With the Veritas "Style" and Veritas "NEXT"Speakers Series, they create Speakers that convince test editors and music listeners with their tonal excellence.
In November 2018, PHONAR launched the modern "Match-Air". For more than two years, a team of engineers has developed this modern active technology that, among other things, allows the music transmission files from the Internet with high resolution audio quality (Hi-Res) and distributes music wirelessly to every room in the house.
