to great musical, and cinematic pleasures, with some of finest the world has to offer...
And then, enjoy it with your family, friends, colleagues, in the comfort of your home."

"Mervyn & the TriTone team have helped me understand the art and science of music appreciation, from the recording process, the engineering,
mastering, and pressing. This has helped me love my system more. TriTone even invited me to a live saxophone recording in their listening space and without editing, demonstrated the precise reproduction of his system. It was spot-on.
I have spent more than 20 years in this hobby, buying and selling, and losing value of my components in the process. From the time I was introduced to Mervyn, my system has only grown better. I stopped moving sideways.
We developed my room, with partial acoustic treatment, diffusing and absorbing, and to fine tune it to a "T", we added a Room Correction DSP into it, the frequency response in-room was treated to +/-3.25dB. Best investment I made in my system.
Months later, he developed an idea of personalised listening, and formulated a way to conduct tests on my listening, he voiced my system from the results of my test. I have to say, it is leaps and bounds better than any system I've heard, even at three times the price, or at least as good. My current system is worth almost $100,000, mono-blocks and the works. I have no desire of changing my system now. It is so good. Okay, hopefully those Legacy speakers soon!

We are strict on our systems' performance always, and take no short-cuts to achieve the best possible performance in every room & condition.
This has given birth to the need for room design services, which has expanded to themed theatres, private screening rooms, studio environment rooms, and control systems that make your fittings controlled in the palm of your hand. The most challenging obstacles have been to deliver high-performance systems in less-than-ideal acoustic environments. But through experience and developing our scientific approach, we have consistently delivered high-performance systems in less-than-ideal spaces. We want to deliver the best sound possible in any room.
We believe in a unique and customised consulting experience for each and every client. Every client listens differently. Every room is different. Every client wants to use his or her system differently. We consult to home owners, developers, interior designers, and business owners. We deliver bespoke solutions for AV and Automation, tailored to you. Different cultures, one-of-a-kind challenges.
"The engagement of music involves achieving proper tone, timing, and staging and imaging.
When the system sounds right, it is easy to immerse yourself in music engaging the mind, body, and soul.
I've experienced this euphoria, and this must be shared."
