The Andover team, led by former Cambridge SoundWorks General Manager Rob Mainiero, is a collection of audio experts and engineers from an iconic lineup of companies, including Apogee Acoustics, Acoustic Research, Harman, Bose and a/d/s/.
Since its formation in 2012, Andover Audio has provided its design and manufacturing services to the most recognized brands in automotive, telecommunications, and high-performance consumer audio. Andover is now focusing its award-winning approach on its own branded products, blending innovative audio technologies with distinctive design.
Its flagship product, the Model One Record Player, is a high-grade turntable music system. It combines a Pro-Ject turntable with a high-grade audio system that supports vinyl playback, Bluetooth, and connection to external devices, such as CD players and streaming devices. Feedback-free phono playback is made possible by Isogroove™, an exclusive Andover Audio technology that eliminates the occurrence of feedback between turntable and speaker. This allows the turntable to be mounted in the same, low-profile enclosure as the speakers, without fidelity-disruptive hum. The result is great sound in a compact package. Accessories for Model One upgrade it from table-top device to a complete entertainment system with LP storage and a range-extending subwoofer.
"[Model One] produces a very wide soundstage that is literally, mind-blowingly good."

Andover is continuing to grow its unique lineup of turntable music systems, including Spinbase – the first speaker base for turntables – as well as its line of Planar Magnetic headphones, starting with the PM-50.
“The PM-50 packs a lot of value, with great comfort, precision build quality, and superb sound from its reference-grade planar magnetic drivers. We’re excited to introduce the PM-50 as the first of many Andover products into the critical-listening headphone space.”
– Bob Hazelwood (Director of Engineering)
