Audirvana is a French company founded in 2011 by Damien Plisson, an engineer recognized as an expert in the audiophile world. Since its creation, the company has developed Audirvana,* the reference hi-fi player for Mac, which has quickly established itself among audiophiles worldwide. Its sound quality and reliability have won over sound engineers, who use it both in the studio and in concert. Audirvana has received numerous awards such as the 2016 Audio Excellence Award from the Japanese magazine AUDIO ACCESSORY, the “Five Star” award for an Exceptional Product from iCreate magazine in September 2017, and the “Remarkable” award from VUmètre magazine in 2018.
*We recently decided to name our software simply Audirvana, and no longer Audirvana Plus. The “Plus” was originally added because we thought of offering a premium version of the software. But down the road, deactivating features in order to design a more basic version seemed artificial, and we found that the “Plus” designation was confusing to customers. Now our brand name is our product: Audirvana.
