The science of music reproduction and the art of Italy – Opera Loudspeakers

Opera Loudspeakers was founded in 1989, but its origins go back to the early 1980s, to an unusual but highly fruitful synergy between two cultures and two audiophiles, one Italian and the other English.

The first loudspeaker to bear the Opera name was the Caruso.  The Caruso was the first of a series of models named in homage to the legendary voices of the lyric opera. Callas, Operetta and Divina soon followed, each gaining the enthusiastic acclaim of music lovers around the world.

That success for Opera loudspeakers then is still the based on the same fundamental principles today.   A fusion between the old and the new:  between traditional Italian craftsmanship in cabinet-making and the most advanced acoustic technology available.

Every Opera loudspeaker, even the least expensive model, follows a tried and tested philosophy of design.    In every model, top quality materials are used along with the carefully applied basic principles of acoustic science.

Today, Opera is under the same corporate umbrella as Unison Research.  Corporate parent Advanced Research In Audio (A.R.I.A.) provides the resources and technical know-how for both Unison Research and Opera that keeps both companies on the cutting edge of product development and innovation.  Opera loudspeakers are available nearly everywhere in the world, and are some of the most reviewed and recommended loudspeakers, including recommendations from the most important hi-fi magazines.

Opera’s commitment to its customers is to offer a full line of top quality loudspeakers to fit every need and every budget that are as beautiful to see as they are to listen to.
