Forget HiFi... Remember Music!
Heed Audio Ltd. has a motto: "Forget hi-fi - remember music!" This 11-employee company designs and manufactures its lines of CD transports, DACs, speakers and amplification components in Budapest, with parts from around the world. Heed's casework, formerly made in the UK, is now made in Hungary by "one of the audio industry's top metalwork houses, for the sake of quality and consistency"
In Hungarian, Heed (pronounced hid) means bridge. For Zsolt Huszti, Heed's owner and chief designer, the bridge in question is that which must be made between "the world[s] of music and electronics. We heed the needs of that connection, and we make devices that can establish a bridge between the two worlds."
