An audio equipment is an electronic device which is integrated for producing amplified sound as in mobile disco, Hi FI or public-address systems on stage.
Audio equipments can also be defined as electronic devices that record, process and reproduce sound.
Audio equipments began to be produced in the 18th centuries when each brand inventor came up with his or her own theory of producing, receiving and converting sound energy to various magnetic patterns in order for sound to be enhanced or produced. They came up with many brands which are used today in the production of different audio equipment all over the world. Scientists believed that sound could be produced in very many different ways and patterns and could be converted to produce quality sound after the process is completed.
The audio engineering society (AES) was the first company to come up with its own sound enhanced product making the challenge to other companies to produce the own brands.
