In the early 2000, longstanding music and design aficionado Jean-François Michaud, lawyer by profession and demanding audiophile, was not satisfied with the platforms, racks and audio furniture available in the market. None met his combined criteria in terms of performance, design, flexibility or ease of assembly.
During his career, he had been involved in the furniture industry while representing a major association of manufacturers in Canada and around the world. He knew the business inside out and had developed close ties with highly skilled collaborators in the industry.
So, combining his passion for music and audio with his experience and technical knowledge, Jean-François dedicated himself to developing audio platforms, modules and furniture that would satisfy his needs and the needs of demanding audiophiles.
He quickly realized that managing vibrations, not eliminating them, was an essential part of high-fidelity music reproduction, a fact often overlooked by many audiophiles.
Not surprisingly, further research showed that existing audio furniture simply didn’t match the great look of today’s high-end audio equipment and fell short of contemporary standards in interior design.
After several years of research and development, Jean-François created Modulum Audio in February 2014. The first products were introduced to the high-end audio market in 2015 and immediately made waves. The right kind of waves.
Today, Modulum offers two lines of audio platform systems. The Modulum FOKUS™ system and the Modulum ARKITEK™ system and the Modulum MODPOD™ vibration control accessories.
