Like many in the home audio industry, Scott Berry is here because of his lifelong passion for music combined with his engineering skils. Like many others, Scott started his interest in HiFi as a customer. At this point, Scott was very interested in using a computer for music play back and Scott said: "I can make this sound a lot better".
Then in 2013, the CAD 1543 DAC made its debut at the Bristol HiFi Show and won “Best Sound of the Show”. This was awarded by the UK Clarity Alliance which is the UK audio manufacturers and dealers’ organization. Clarity Alliance members visit all the rooms at the Show and then as a group decide which room win this coveted award. This was a good start for CAD!
Scott seeks to get the best possible sound out of a computer…… and in searching for alternative solutions, some things have become clear, which now form the philosophy of Computer Audio Design products.
CAD don’t try to make too many products or do things they don’t understand – and they try to work with all other manufacturing partners to create synergy and harmony for their customers.
