The SHAN brand is our love affair. SHAN is one of the oldest Czech manufacturers of hifi speaker systems and since 1991 our main goals have been quality sound and quality workmanship. We are continuing in this tradition, while raising the bar ever higher.
SHAN products are made entirely in the Czech Republic, a fact which we are incredibly proud of! This gives us control over the whole manufacturing process.
Custom solutions. We strive to accommodate our customers needs, and we can make speaker systems or custom-built comprehensive audio systems. Our more expensive installations include delivery anywhere in the Czech Republic, of course, as well as user training.
We are a Czech company founded in Vráž u Berouna (near Prague) in 1991, focusing on hifi and high-end speaker technology. Over time the company has gained wide experience and a level of know-how you would expect from a leading European brand, and has built a loyal following. From the start Shan has focused on novel product designs, for example the Aztec and Emotion speaker systems.
In 2008 under new ownership, the company’s development and manufacturing operation moved to the foothills of the Beskid Mountains, in the village of Třanovice. RNDr. Bohumil Sýkora, the creator of many speaker systems and one of the world’s few experts who understands the challenges of electroacoustics and acoustics, continues to collaborate with the company, of which he is an integral part.
During the last 24 years of manufacturing SHAN high-end speaker systems, we have gained a lot of experience, which helps us continually improve the construction and performance of the models we offer.
Our philosophy is a synthesis of perfect sound and appearance, and the current model ranges Lyra, Cithara and IceBox are proof of this. Perfect workmanship is evident from the product’s surface to its design and utility value. Moreover, we are pressing further ahead with our manufacturing programme; we offer our customers non-standard designs, according to their exact wishes. We try to accommodate speaker systems according to the client’s place of installation. By working together with architects and project managers, we help to turn concepts of sound distribution in homes, apartments or shared rooms into a reality. The Lyra, Cithara and IceBox systems are designed so it is possible to make almost any home cinema set or perfect stereo system.
