Colquhoun Audio Laboratories Limited (CALL), a leading manufacturer of high-performance audio electronics and loudspeakers proudly made in Canada, has announced the acquisition of another iconic Canadian audio brand, Magnum Dynalab. The acquisition was completed on March 31, 2023, and all manufacturing, sales, and service for the Magnum Dynalab brand will now be integrated into existing CALL operations that include Axiom Audio and Bryston, LTD in Dwight, Ontario, Canada.
“We are excited to add Magnum Dynalab’s legendary FM tuners and vacuum tube electronics to our product mix, all supported under one roof by our design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities as well as our award-winning customer service,” explained CALL Founder and CEO Ian Colquhoun.
Founded in 1984, Magnum Dynalab constructed a well-earned legacy of revolutionary, refined FM tuner products. The company’s first FM tuner, the FT 101, was launched in 1985 to glowing reviews. To enhance the performance of analog tuners, Magnum Dynalab also began producing an assortment of both directional and omnidirectional FM antennas, often appraised as the finest in the business. Since that time, Magnum Dynalab has introduced 15 analog FM tuners, including the Triode Series that incorporates vacuum tube technology into the audio output stage. Today, the newest line of Magnum Dynalab tuners, called the Dynamyte Series, features an advanced HD Music Streamer, placing a world of content at each user’s fingertips. Jim Richards acquired the company in 2014 and served as President and COO until the recent acquisition by Colquhoun Audio Labs.
Magnum Dynalab staff will be onsite in CALL’s Dwight factory to assist with the transition.
