Quint Audio | Professional audio speakers


Quint Audio, manufacturer of
professional audio speakers was founded 2012 by its two Dutch owners Peter Kaandorp and Hans Kwinten. Hans Kwinten is the chief engineer and designer of quint audio while Peter Kaandorp is the current product manager. Both Hans and Peter have a lifetime history in pro audio technology.

As a young boy, CTO Hans Kwinten already built stereo living room systems for family and friends. At the age of 20 he worked at Philips Netherlands as an Energy Engineer at the Laboratory of Applied Physics. Although energy technology was his official job, he could be found much more often in the audio r&d department with the audio engineers of Philips inventing the Compact Disc (Yes it is a Philips invention!) and for instance the famous Philips MFB loudspeakers, rather than behind his own desk. After his career at (among others) Philips and Strukton Hans started with the full-time development of loudspeaker systems initially for third parties and companies but later as Quint Audio.

CEO Peter Kaandorp developed his love for the pro-audio especially in the actual working field. He worked for many years as a sound engineer and musician with various Dutch theatre companies and bands, and then worked for various distributors and manufacturers of bigger and smaller pro audio brands like German KS Audio and d&b audio. In 2001 he started his own pro audio sales company and from that background he began the collaboration with Hans Kwinten, who’s loudspeaker designs Peter had always been admiring and enjoying very much.

For Kwinten and Kaandorp the need to develop their own loudspeakers was partly born out of frustration that the available products did not offer the features that both men had in mind. In their view, it (still) are only the big brands that set the standards, even if it means these standards can sometimes be quite poor and old fashioned. They felt that it could be better and they could do better in many respects themselves. In addition, both men had so many new products and fresh ideas in mind that they decided to use them in the development of their own loudspeaker brand. And so was decided and carried out from 2012 onwards.

Although Quint Audio is still a modest player in the high-quality loudspeaker market, there is a wide range of professional audio speakers available, from high-end speakers for live theatre, via commercial audio systems and commercial speakers to professional speakers for clubs and discotheques. Quint Audio is seen by connoisseurs as a highly innovative and distinctive loudspeaker company in relation to the established market.
