The EON way of doing things.
Eon Research is a company specialised in design and manufacturing of innovative, transparent sounding audio gear for the professional and musician market. Eon is established by Mr Panos Athanasiou, an electronics engineer that carries a background of more that 25 years in the audio industry, doing technician, engineer and designer works for many companies. Mr Athanasiou created Eon in order to realise his specific ideas, techniques and knowledge in order to fill a gap in the audio world: to give back to audio equipment that bit of warm, organic sound that is ussually missing from most modern gear.
In Eon we are not interested in building another "clone" guitar effect or a typical conventional design processor or amplifier like the thousands often carbon copies that already are offered in the market today. On the contrary, our goal is to design and build genuine gear that gives the best audio and aesthetic results for the requested task. In our unique Eon designs we are using hand picked vintage parts like tubes combined with modern high quality parts while utilising new technology like laser cutters and Cnc machines to accomplice our goal: to get the best audio and aesthetic results.
During last decades, audio hardware industry focused more and more in ways to get cheap and mass produced gear. Doing this, they compromised audio quality, discarding older innovations and ways of doing things that were focused in getting the best sound possible. Instead, they use the cheapest parts/designs/manufacturing possible, a tactic that leads to big loses in audio quality. The Eon way is different, we keep using old, now abantoned audio teqniques and technognosia of acheiveing the best audio results and combine them with the latest technology achivements in component and manufacturing level to make our products achive the best performance possible. At the same time, we make sure that our gear is also aesthetically pleasing by giving extra attention in its design. In our way to achive our goal, we use vaccuum tubes at the same time that we design everything using the latest technology in Cad and using laser cutters and cncs to manufacture our machines while we paint/finish wood parts by hand and fine tune them by ear.
Our clientelle consists of a broad range of audio proffesionals, studios, radiostations, pro and amateur musicians of various genres and positions in the industry that all share one thing: their quest for the best audio quality. Our ability to design and manufacture even one-off equipment for specific needs makes us the best choise for non-compromises audio gear.
All Eon products are released in limited quantities depending on part availability. Every piece that we manufacture, has to pass strict quality tests followed by a burn-in period, before it gets the final approval to be sent to its owner, ensuring best possible experience and return.
