A local audio company is quietly making a name for itself around the world with products that enhance the sound of music for consumers who demand only the best quality.
Resonessence Labs was started by Mark and Martin Mallinson in 2009, and their first product – Invicta – launched in 2011. The audio deck allows users to improve their sound quality through a digital to analog converter, and it’s expected to revolutionize the market, much the same way that high definition changed the way we watch TV.
"Musicians record with a much higher quality," says Mallinson. "The problem has always been delivering that quality to the consumer. Our units allow people to listen to a high definition recording for the first time ever."
The company has already taken home awards and recognition in many countries, and one of their products was recently named as best in class at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, the largest consumer audio show in the US.
Mallinson has spent the past 30 years in the Okanagan and all work is done at their Kelowna shop. Even with their products gaining in popularity and a network of dealers stretching around the globe, he says they intend to keep things local as a way to ensure the quality of their products.
