It was the summer holiday of 2001 in Xi'an, a beautiful ancient city with profound cultural history where 3 high school classmates worked together to build their first speakers. Their love for music and their enthusiasm for the audio equipment hobby laid the foundation for a lifetime of friendship.At the beginning of 2006, these 3 classmates graduated from their universities and decided to start working together to build new audio devices. They used their technical knowledge to create their first "decent quality" DAC. They enjoyed music, they enjoyed life, and they also enjoyed the sense of achievement and pride that came with designing and building audio equipment. Soon to follow, the idea of starting a brand and making audio products came to mind. Matrix Audio was born!
Merason Audio was founded in Switzerland by Daniel Frauchiger in 2013. All Merason products are designed, tested and handcrafted in Switzerland by Daniel and his team. Merason’s goal has been to create analogue sounding DACs that perform well above their respective prices.
