B_O LogoBang & Olufsen was founded in Struer, Denmark, in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, two innovative, young engineers devoted to high quality audio reproduction.

Still at the forefront of domestic technology, Bang & Olufsen has extended its comprehensive experience with integrated audio and video solutions for the home to other areas such as the hospitality and automotive industries in recent years. Consequently, its current product range epitomizes seamless media experiences in the home as well as in the car and on the move.

Just Add Power LogoAt Just Add Power our design and manufacturing philosophy is evolutionary, not revolutionary. For example, customers who invested in our 1G HDIP solution in 2009 can still purchase new Transmitters and Receivers in 2014 to expand and maintain their system. Most companies would be embarassed to be selling the exact same hardware several years in a row, but not Just Add Power. We take pride in having designed an infrastructure that can be sustained and manufactured reliably for many years. While our 2G solution does more today than it did when we launched the line in 2010, the exact same 2G Transmitters and Receivers can be bought today. We just keep making them better through free firmware updates. When we decide to add features that can’t be done through firmware alone, we are careful to build new hardware with an eye towards backwards compatibility. This is best illlustrated by the popular 2G+ series, which can be mixed and matched with the original 2G models.

We take pride in knowing that our evolutionary product design philosophy not only protects your investment, an HD/IP system from Just Add Power actually increases in value over time.
