M&K Sound Vice President and Managing Director, Chris Minto

Loudspeaker brand M&K Sound Co. has been taken over by a new team headed up by longtime M&K distributors Per Becher and Asger Bak. Put under creditor jurisdiction in February, Becher and Bak acquired M&K’s intellectual property (brand name, trademarks, Websites, etc.) in July.

Effective October 1, M&K’s U.S. operation will begin with audio industry veteran Chris Minto (pictured) stepping in as Vice President and managing director. Minto had been with the old M&K for seven years as the company’s professional division director.

“Our focus," says Minto, “will be to maintain and even improve M&K’s product and service quality. Those classic M&K products that our customers know and love will be kept on, and those products that are not up to our highest standards will be dropped in favor of newer, better products. We intend to provide the best possible listening experience to the audio professional and to the home theater enthusiast alike.”

Other M&K alumni joining the new company include chief design engineer Chris Hagen and electrical engineer Jordan Arnos. In addition to new product development, Hagen will also oversee M&K’s new service department. “It is imperative that the new M&K provides service for our new as well as our old customers”, says Hagen, a veteran speaker designer with M&K and JBL. “It will take us a little time to get the service department ready, but in a short time we should be fully operational.”

“Everyone associated with the new M&K is a dedicated audiophile," adds Minto, a veteran recording engineer, mixer and record producer. “We have a tremendous crew of talented people whose energy and passion is focused on the art and science of high quality sound reproduction. Every one of our speakers will reflect that focus.”
