DETROIT - October 26, 2016 - Detroit Audio Lab®, an audio equipment startup with headquarters and production in Detroit, has announced plans to handcraft premium, one-of-a-kind speakers and audio gear using wood reclaimed from abandoned Detroit properties. Each piece is literally Made From Detroit™ and engraved with the actual street address of the home or business that thrived decades ago. Owners reclaim a piece of Detroit's rich history, now reborn as a thoroughly modern, premium audio product.

"Made From Detroit reflects the very heart and soul of who we are," said Mike Bauer, Detroit Audio Lab founder. "Our products showcase and preserve Detroit's history. Rather than dooming our structures to landfill, we breathe new life into them. We also comply with global best practices and regulations on waste and sustainability throughout their construction, meaning that our products not only preserve the past, they also protect the future."

Fully committed to domestic manufacturing, Detroit Audio Lab sources all its electronic components within the U.S. The company commissioned Michigan firms to create proprietary designs and manufacture its state-of-the-art
electronic circuit boards and speaker networks. All Detroit Audio Lab products are designed and manufactured for accurate reproduction, delivering the sound artists and recording engineers intended.

Current products include:
• D:Audio Solo: Sealed, full-range small Bluetooth stereo speaker with big sound. Two full-range drivers deliver clear audio and impressive bass. Connects via Bluetooth or direct. Powered by AC and rechargeable, replaceable battery.
• D:AudioRiff: Two-way, bass-reflex stereo speaker offers full-range sound in a compact package. Connect from portable devices using Bluetooth or standard headphone jack or use conventional stereo connections. May be a standalone audio source or complement an existing audio/visual entertainment system. Powered by AC, with optional rechargeable, replaceable battery.
• D:AudioBack-Beat: Premium two-way, bass-reflex bookshelf speaker pair with huge sound and amazing bass response. These vented speakers reach down to ~45 Hz and up to 20,000 Hz, delivering a full range of high fidelity.
• D:AudioAmp: Integrated stereo amplifier in a small footprint. The 100-watt output is powerful enough to drive large speakers. Connectivity via Bluetooth and conventional 3.5mm stereo jacks. The Amp replaces a bulky receiver or conventional amplifier.
• D:Audio Voice: Passive amplifier for use with smartphones and small tablets to increase the volume of the smartphone or tablet, no wire or power required.
"Detroit Audio Lab's mission is to bring the audio industry, which has all but disappeared from our shores, back to American soil," said Bauer. "Our products will always be designed and manufactured here in Michigan,
using local and American suppliers. We're building the foundation for an audio industry right in—and from—the same city that gave the world so much great sound. It seems fitting that the sounds of Detroit are heard again through the wood and workers of Detroit."
