Handmade Hifi

In search of the the cleanest, portable sound.

Music has been a huge part of my life, starting from playing piano at the age of 5. As a result, I've become obsessed with the way we experience music and have become somewhat of an audio nut. To feed this obsession, I crafted a HiFi portable speaker system to take great sound (not the typical tinny Bluetooth speaker sound) with me.

The speaker enclosure is made from dimensionally stable hickory and industrial felt. The drivers are Mark Audio CHR-70 Full Range drivers paired with a Class-D amplifier and Bluetooth wireless link. The power comes from a rechargeable high output 12v 6AH LiFePO4 for maximum jams.
