Microphase Audio Design
From a very young age, Jean-Marie LIERE, the designer of these speakers, has been exposed to live music, as his maternal grandmother and mum both used to play the piano, then later on at jazz clubs in Paris (Memphis Slim at Les Trois Mailletz comes to mind…), various concert halls in Europe (Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Musikverein in Vienna…) and the Sydney Opera House bien súr!
In 1970, Jean-Marie started to learn electronics at Uni and attending hifi shows and visiting top dealers in Paris like Télé Radio Commercial near the Saint-Lazare station. Interestingly enough, all the music instruments dealers were and still are in that street. Jean-Marie was lucky enough to meet such luminaries as Joseph Léon (Elipson), André Charlin, Pierre Clément, Georges Cabasse, Jacques Mahul of Focal fame, just to name a few.
