A family story
It all started in 2013 when Arthur, passionate about music, new technologies and beautiful objects, was offered by his father a vintage post belonging to his grandfather. Immediately under the spell of this family radio full of memories and History(ies), he dreams of being able to use it every day to listen to his own playlists. With the help of his father, he decides to modernize it - without distorting it - by allowing connection to a telephone. The challenge is met and the pleasure of the music lover at its peak. Arthur then realizes that the original project he has carried out for him could enchant other owners of radios of yesteryear...
The promise of successful time travel
After embarking on the modernization of vintage radios as an auto-entrepreneur in 2013 under the name A.bsolument, Arthur extended this original offer, full of charm and nostalgia by creating, 2 years later, the company du same name.
Since then, lulled by yesterday's beauty and today's performance, like sound artisans, thanks to 3 key steps – changing the loudspeaker, adding a 50w analog amplifier and integration of a Bluetooth system – we take the radios back in time to offer all music lovers a unique experience.
An activity that mobilizes us 100% until 2023, when we decide to look to the future and direct our passion towards a new playground: the creation of eco-designed Bluetooth speakers.
Via these 2 distinct universes, we aspire today to offer all music lovers the best of both worlds.
To support this vision, a new brand signature beats the beat: Sound for the future.
