In high-end audio, behind almost every breakthrough product, is a solitary and slightly rebellious individual who simply won’t settle for second best. Many of these individuals have founded companies born out of their frustration with compromised products claiming to be more than they really were. That’s why PBN was created almost two decades ago by Peter Bichel Noerbaek.
Noerbaek is an inventive engineer, first and foremost. Second, he doesn’t suffer compromise gladly. And lastly, he refuses to accept “that’s the way it’s always been done” as a rationale for anything. “The truth is in what you hear,” he contends.
As you peruse this website you will soon discover that PBN is more than a speaker company. It is a total-system company creating amplifiers and pre-amplifiers specifically to support the wholly uncompromised speakers PBN creates.
The same attention to meticulous detail that goes into each and every PBN speaker is also found in every PBN component…including Noerbaek’s award-winning turntable. But, unlike some high-end audiophile products, these pieces are just as beautiful to the eyes as they are to the ears.
As a native of Denmark, Noerbaek’s sense of furniture design is innate. As an engineer, he has gone to extremes to assure that every speaker, component and cable is absolutely the very finest available. There are no shortcuts, no obsolete parts and no concessions. It’s a take-no-prisoners approach! Everything is perfect, inside and out. But ultimately, it’s still about performance. And, as one reviewer quipped: “Noerbaek puts the bling inside, where it truly counts.”
