General information [contribute]

AudioQuest web site (December 16, 2009): AudioQuest was not so much founded as it was envolved. When Bill Low created AudioQuest in 1980 it was really just a small varation of the activities he had started he had started in 1972

During high school and early college. Bill had struggled to have the best audio system he could. He had built dozens of Healthkit and Dynakit Amplifiers, preamps and tuners for classmates. Each US$10 or $15 he earned building kits went to buy records or to upgrade to a better piece of used equipment.

While at college in Oregon, Bill realized that instead of simplu offering audio componentrecommendations to other students, he should sell the equipment. His small appointment-only business evolved from selling BSR turntables and Hitachi receivers in 1972, to Linn Sondek, Radford, Celestion and Yamaha (first dealer in the Northwest) in 1974. In 1975 his little shop was the largest Linn Sondek dealer in the US.

By 1976, with colelge long over, the urge to move to California, an especially conservative market. Dealers were fond of saying. "If I don't already carry it, I obviously don't need it." It was difficult tp even get a chance to demonstrate the superb equipment was representing, which included Decca, Audionics, Koss Electrostatic, Dunlap Clarke and Celestion among others.
