In 1967 in a quiet town in rustic New England, Russound was founded based on a desire to make the finest audio accessories on the market. Russound's early products included hi-fi solutions such as speaker selectors, tape monitor switches and volume controls. The name Russound became synonymous for high-quality volume controls and the company soon developed a reputation for their reliable products.

Over the years, Russound developed a wider range of products for the custom installation market and increasingly became known for quality, reliability and service. That vision continues on today, as exciting new technologies are being implemented to create modern solutions for their customers’ needs.  With its products now sold in over 100 countries, the Russound name has become synonymous with audio quality not only in the USA, but also around the world.

Based in Newmarket, New Hampshire, Russound continues to design and manufacture innovative products that sound great, are easy to install and simple to use, and that offer great value. Russound delivers a complete range of multiroom audio systems, source equipment, volume controls, amplifiers, loudspeakers and intercom systems.
