About Soundking Group Europe
The Soundking Group Company Limited is among the largest musical equipment and professional audio manufacturers in China, established for more than 20 years and with a major manufacturing, research, engineering, and administrative HQ in Ningbo, south of Shanghai. In recent years The Soundking Group Company Limited has acquired three major UK 'heritage' audio brands: CADAC, the high end mixing console manufacturer known internationally for its premium custom engineered mixing desks that made modern sound design for large scale West End and Broadway musicals possible. Studiomaster, one of the most famous names in UK pro audio – making the first affordable PA amps and mixing desks – and the first 'home studio' mixing desks – in the 1980's, and effectively 'inventing' the powered mixer. Carlsbro, the famous British guitar amplifier marque that pre-dates even Marshall.
All three companies remain independent entities within the Soundking Europe group, retaining R&D development and product development, engineering, strategic management – and, in the case of CADAC and Studiomaster – certain key manufacturing at the groups' Luton headquarters. Soundking's ownership provides the three companies with 'in-house' mass automated production capabilities and considerable inward investment from the parent company; such as has enabled CADAC to develop a whole new series of live and installation sound mixing consoles; including, arguably, the world's most advanced digital live mixing console).
Soundking Group has an extensive range of innovative, market-leading products and was a major supplier for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. Please see www.soundking.com
